Sheila Reid repeats, women finish third

In what seems to be a scripted narrative by now, Sheila Reid outkicked Jordan Hasay of Oregon to win the NCAA championship by a very narrow margin. After some runner from SMU with a very hard to pronounce/spell name made a suicidal attack early, Reid and the pack reeled her in and the girl ended up a non-factor in the finish.

In the team race, the women weren't as lucky, finishing third behind Georgetown, who won their first national championship and Washington. Anyone who had been following this team all season could foresee that result, given the lack of a competitive fifth runner.

On the men's side, Villanova finished 13th, very respectable.
