WATCH: USC Women’s Track Team Claims NCAA Title In Comeback Fashion

USC’s women’s track and field team made an insane comeback in the 4X400 relay to win the 2018 track title by one point.

Going into Saturday’s relay at the NCAA outdoor track and field championships, USC needed one final win to beat out both Georgia (52 points) and Stanford (51) for the title-win.

In order to achieve this, they needed to secure first-place, which would give them a ten-point win.

And crazy enough, they were able to accomplish it. While heading into the final turn in the relay, USC’s Kendall Ellis moved past her third place spot to beat out Purdue’s Jahneya Mitchell in the last meter. She won with a closing time of 50.05, beating her opponent by .07 seconds.

This last stretch was so exciting that even fans and celebrities had to watch in awe.
