UCLA deserves an assist in helping USC win yesterday’s NCAA women’s track and field championship.
An unheralded part of USC’s dramatic victory was sprinter Angie Annelus surprisingly winning the 200 meters just before the 4×400 relay. She transferred this season from UCLA.
Without Annelus, USC has 10 less points in the meet.
UCLA also allowed 400-meter men’s hurdler Rai Benjamin to transfer to USC and he won the event for the Trojans at the NCAA championships.
Someone at UCLA should probably ask athletic director Dan Guerrero why he let two star sprinters go to their crosstown rivals and win NCAA individual titles and in Annelus’ case, an NCAA team title.
But UCLA track has become a shell of its former self and Guerrero seems unconcerned.
