This edition of “Getting To Know” features 2023 3C2A Southern California Regional 400m hurdles champion Lincoln Marschall.  He is excited about the opportunities for him as a member of the USC track and field program.   
 
Q: You’re currently majoring in international relations, what drew you to that field?

Q: How do you feel like being at a school with more resources and a program with such a rich history has influenced your personal growth? 
 
L.M.: I think that it made me realize there’s more challenges. Even with so many more resources, there’s still so many hurdles that I have to go over. I think people have taught me that it just takes time and focus and I’m going to have to really get…
