Here is your exclusive place to add information to the TDB which doesn’t pertain to any other moderator post. “This & That” is now our constant location for any subjects you, our members, want to expose to the TDB. It’s your place to shine.
We will start a new “This & That” post every week to keep things fresh. Please use “This & That” instead of placing your random comments in other posts which are unrelated to the content of your comment.
Here are a couple of unrelated USC topics to get you started:
1) Get ready to watch USC T&F compete at the 2018 NCAA T&F Championships hosted by Oregon at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. from June 6-9. The entire 2018 NCAA Track & Field Championships will be televised on one of the ESPN network platforms.
USC’s women enter ranked No. 2 with the men’s team No. 11. At least one Trojan man or woman has won an individual NCAA outdoor title in 20 of the last 26 championships.
The Trojans have 9 men and 13 women who will be competing in 28 events at the 2018 NCAA T&F Championships, which includes three relay teams. Men: Benjamin (400m H), Brock (100m), Ford (800m), Morgan (400m), Norman (400m), Ponzio (SP), Samuel (400m H), Sears (HJ), Shinnick (4x400m).
