When USC’s men’s track team won the NCAA West Regional title in Eugene last week, the PA announcer waited for the conclusion of the pole vault, nearly an hour after the Trojans actually clinched the title, by which time most of the crowd departed. And there was no trophy presentation.
“We had our own celebration on the track,” USC sprinter Ahmad Rashad said.
