Isa Odgers Wins Two, UCLA Wins Five Events to Close USC Tri-Meet

USC Tri-Meet

The USC women wrapped up their tri-meet against UCLA and Arizona in Los Angeles on Saturday. The USC Trojans earned wins in both relays and three events while the UCLA Bruins earned five event wins. The USC men had a dual meet scheduled against Arizona alongside the women, but unfortunately Arizona withdrew due to positive coronavirus tests. Instead, the USC men continued their two-day intrasquad meet on Saturday in lieu of their dual meet.

Day Two Highlights

The USC women topped the 200 medley relay in a 1:42.66, featuring freshman Kaitlyn Dobler‘s 27.88 breast split. UCLA’s A-relay took second place at 1:44.54.

USC junior Isa Odgers went on to highlight the session, taking two event wins for the Trojans. Odgers first dominated the 200 breast, winning by 10 seconds at 2:12.43. She then topped the 400 IM at 4:17.91, just two seconds off her 2018 lifetime best of 4:15.55.
