The website for the Mt. San Antonio College Relays, more commonly known as the Mt. Sac Relays, proclaims the meet to be “where the world’s best athletes compete!”Jumps · Junior hurdler Brendan Ames shares USC’s best time in the 110-meter hurdler with junior Oscar Spurlock at 13.81 seconds. Ames and Spurlock will be tested this weekend against some of the nation’s best. – Gary Fung | Daily Trojan The USC track and field team will need to be at its best from April 15 to 17 in Walnut, Calif., if it wants to justify its current No. 7 ranking and have a strong showing against those athletes.“This meet will give us a much better idea of where we stand, especially within the conference,” USC coach Ron Allice said. “The competition was very stiff just to qualify [for the Mt. Sac Relays]. Not everyone that we wanted to get in got in.”For the athletes who qualified, the meet will give them the opportunity to both improve their qualifying times for the championship season and improve against some of the stiffest competition the Trojans have faced all year.“Generally speaking, we’re going to put people in their best event,” Allice said. “We’re trying to give people the best chances to post their best time for later this year.”The Mt. Sac website isn’t being hyperbolic when it uses the phrase “world’s best athletes.” With U.S. collegiate powerhouses like Stanford, Baylor and Washington, USC will run, throw and hurdle against athletes from Bermuda, Great Britain, Canada, Finland and a myriad of other nations eager to show what they can do on the American stage.“You wouldn’t be at USC if you didn’t think you could compete at that level with athletes from around the globe,” Allice said. “That’s what we try to do. We try to put our athletes in a position where they can compete against the best, no matter where they’re from.”USC currently has 57 men and women scheduled to compete at Mt. Sac, including some of its most impressive athletes.Senior Ahmad Rashad, generally considered to be USC’s best short-distance runner, will run both the 100-meter and 200-meter dash after a couple weeks without competition.Junior hurdlers Oscar Spurlock and Brendan Ames, who both have best times of 13.81 in the men’s 110-meter high hurdles, ranked ninth in the nation, will both compete in the event this weekend.Sophomore Dalilah Muhammad, who last weekend won the women’s high jump at the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational, will return to the 400-meter hurdles for the USC women, the event in which she set the nation’s fastest time this year at the Trojan Invitational back in March.Junior Zsofia Erdelyi, originally from Godollo, Hungary, will compete in the women’s 5,000-meter run at a meet in which her home country is represented in the women’s hammer throw.Once all the results are in, Allice said the next objective is to use the times to determine strategy for the USC-UCLA dual meet on May 1.“Our performances will determine how we line [the dual meet] up,” Allice said. “It’s key that we do well this weekend for the sake of the rest of the year.”

Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Upton ended up hitting .215 with 12 homers and a .724 OPS in 219 at-bats, well below his career averages.“I think when you go through your normal routine in the offseason, it sets you up for more success than when you don’t,” Upton said Saturday. “That’s the hope this year, that I get the full offseason of training like I have in past years and hopefully I get the same results.”Upton will have a platelet-rich plasma injection next week, and six weeks after that he’ll be fully cleared for strengthening.ALSOTommy La Stella, who is in the final stages of rehabbing from a broken leg, is still not ready to play. Ausmus said there is a point at which the Angels would just shut down La Stella, but “I don’t know that we’ve necessarily reached that point.”UP NEXTAngels (LHP Patrick Sandoval, 0-3, 5.28) vs. Rays (LHP Ryan Yarbrough, 11-3, 3.51), 1:07 p.m., Fox Sports West Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone ANAHEIM — After he was out of the lineup for the seventh straight game on Saturday, Mike Trout offered hope that the wait is almost over.While conceding that he’d earlier said he would play on Friday, only to be held out of the lineup again, Trout insisted that this will be different.“The plan is to play tomorrow,” Trout said on Saturday. “I told you guys Friday, but I think tomorrow is going to be the day for sure.”Manager Brad Ausmus agreed that Trout “probably will be a DH, but will be good to go.” “Just being in the lineup would make me feel good,” Trout said. “I’m going crazy. Just watching my teammates go out there and battle and you can’t help them do much, it’s tough. But we have (13 games, starting Sunday), and I’m going to try to be out there as much as I can.”Trout may need another procedure after the season to correct the issue permanently.“I got to talk to the doctors after the season to see what they want me to do,” Trout said. “I’m doing as much as I can and the trainers are doing as much as they can to get me back out there.”UPTON’S OUTLOOKA day after Justin Upton learned that his season is over because of patella tendinitis, he said that his disappointing season actually began last winter.Upton said he first hurt his right knee last winter, and he could never do the conditioning he wanted to do. Then he missed most of spring training, even before spraining his toe and missing the first two and a half months of the season.Related Articles Trout has been diagnosed with a nerve issue in the bottom of his right foot. On Monday he had an injection of extreme cold fluid intended to numb the pain enough for him to play.On Friday, he did some work running and hitting in the cage in turf shoes and felt well enough to play, but once he put on his cleats he realized it was still too tender.So far there have been conversations about shutting down Trout for the remaining two-plus weeks of the season, but Trout wants to play and the doctors have assured him that he can’t injure himself any worse if he does.“I want to be out there,” Trout said. “Obviously, if we were in the playoff race it would be a different story, but I’m trying to do as much as I can to get myself ready to play.”Trout conceded that even when he does return to action, he will likely have to be the designated hitter most of the time.
