Saturday is always a good day to be a USC Trojan, only this time it wasn't because of football...Two Trojan athletic teams had the chance to prove themselves in big ways, and both rose to the occasion. To start, the women of Troy's track team ended a 15-year losing streak to Bruins, winning the dual meet 86-77 at UCLA. But the real battle on Saturday was won at sea (or the port of Los Angeles, if we're going to get technical). The USC women's crew team won its seventh consecutive annual battle against the Bruins. But this year the win was a bit different. That's because this win came with a trophy.
Not just any trophy - the most coveted Trophy in all of Los Angeles...
