Coach - Villanova University

"I didn't think lightning would strike twice. I don't know what to say...I decided to go with the exact same relay from last year (2013 Penn Relays 4x800 Champions). I told them to try to channel last year. We had nothing to lose and everything to gain."

Emily Lipari

Anchor - Villanova University

"I know that Laura (Roesler) is a very competitive person and that she was looking to do the same thing to me that I did to her last year (Lipari out-kicked Roesler to win the 2013 Penn Relays 4x800). I had to put a good lead on her, and I could feel her coming...I didn't want to give her an opportunity to edge me out on he the line, so I took off with everything I had left in the tank with 200 meters to go. (My teammates) ran with so much heart."
