Villanova Sweeps Cross Country Championships, Sheila Reid Is a Legend


It was a banner day for Villanova Cross Country today in Louisville as both the men's and the women's teams took home Big East team titles.

On the women's side, an extremely close race was essentially won on the strength Sheila Reid's dominant kick for a third consecutive conference title, and a second place finish by 2010 All-American Bogdana Mimic.

The men finished in a close pack and wound up winning by 53 points. They ran so well together that they still would have won even if all seven of their runners were scored as opposed to the usual five.

Men's Race:
