Another former Ivy Leaguer will be using up the rest of his NCAA eligibility at another Division 1 institution this spring, but it is a name that we have not heard from in awhile.
It was announced today that Conor McCullough, Ivy League record holder in the indoor weight throw and outdoor hammer throw, was granted a 6th year of NCAA eligibility to compete for the University of Southern California, effective immediately. McCullough previously competed for Princeton in the 2010 and 2012 seasons, where he won four Heps titles in the weight and hammer throws, as well as setting both conference and conference-meet marks. Since his last Ivy appearance, McCullough has been competing for both USA and Ireland in international competitions, where he set a new personal best 253-03 last July at the Edmonton International Track Classic.
USC is scheduled to compete at Kentucky’s Rod McCravy Indoor Invitational this weekend, where McCullough could make his return to the NCAA scene.
