Track: After One Day, Villanova Men Lead, Women are Third at Big East Indoors


After one day at the Big East indoor track and field championships,Villanova has shown quite well, winning the women's and men's  5000m titles (Bogdana Mimic and Hugo Beamish) and finishing in second and third respectively in the distance medley, despite the fact that the men's DMR was essentially a B-Team.

With one day remaining, Villanova is in first place in the men's competition and third in the women's, with plenty of point scoring opportunities remaining tomorrow. With the majority of the points being awarded tomorrow, a big effort is necessary, but today was a good result for both teams.
