Southern California captured the 2021 outdoor track and field national championship in Eugene on Saturday.
Anna Cockrell’s wins in the 100-meter and 400-meter hurdles helped the Trojans clinch the title. She is only the second person in history to win both races in the same season. In addition to Cockrell’s individual effort, a victory in the 4×100-meter relay locked in USC’s championship push.
