Three Relays for VU Women at Penn -- Two for the Men?
This below from today's Philadelphia Inquirer. The story indicates that the Villanova women will contest each of the major distance relays at Penn: 4x800, 4x1500, and the DMR. The men will perhaps contest only two of the three, despite being entered in all three. The Villanova men are the defending champions in the DMR.
Around the track. The Villanova women's team, anchored by multiple all-American and two-time NCAA cross-country champion Sheila Reid, likely will compete in all three distance relays - distance medley, 4x1500 meters, and 4x800. Reid, a fifth-year senior, is expected to anchor all three in her bid for her first career Penn Relays watch. . . . The Villanova men are entered in those three relays, but head coach Marcus O'Sullivan said he may decide to run two. One is the distance medley, in which the Wildcats are defending champions and have two runners back from that team - Brian Tetreault (Cinnaminson) and Samuel Ellison (Upper Dublin).
