It was so fortunate that Trojan Candy was able to take pictures at the 2019 "A Day in Troy" that occurred before the Women of Troy basketball game vs. Utah (3/3/2019). It was there that I was able to take pictures of USC athletes signing autographs for the kids. The USC sports that were represented were Track and Field, Soccer, Rowing and Golf.

Trojan Candy was able to meet and take pictures of four 2020 Rowing Seniors when they were Juniors.

My husband Jim and I love to go to USC Men's and Women's Tennis matches. Our Men's Tennis Team was ranked #1 in the polls before the novel coronavirus shut down all spring sports. Here are the Seniors on the Men's Team---Brandon Holt, Rae Lan, and Riley Smith.

Trojan Candy interviewed Brandon Holt when he was a freshman on April 14, 2017.
