Sac, where he ran a 50.45 in the 400-meter dash.For the USC women, senior Elizabeth Olear will run the 200-meter dash, the race in which she had a season-best time at last week’s Mt. Sac Relays.The women will also send their regular 4×100-meter relay team to Cal State Los Angeles.USC will only send four throwers to the Triton Invitational. Seniors Aaron Dan and Col Campbell will compete in the discus, junior Trey Henderson will compete in the hammer throw and sophomore Alex Adams will participate in both the shot put and the discus for the Trojans.last_img
