Villanova Competing at Millrose Games Saturday Night

 Eamonn Coghlan winning at Millrose

Tomorrow night, the Villanova quartet of Brian Tetreault, Sam Ellison, Chris FitzSimons and Sam McEntee will compete in the Distance Medley Relay at the "Millrose Games" at The Armory. McEntee is coming off the first sub-four minute mile of his career two weeks ago, Ellison is coming off personal bests in both the 800m and 500m, FitzSimons was known for being a lights-out relay runner in high school, and  Tetreault ran the opening leg on last year's Penn Relays DMR Championship. Villanova's main competition should come from Dublin City University, who feature sub-four minute miler John Coghlan, son of 1983 5000m World Champion, former indoor mile record holder and Villanova legend Eamonn Coghlan who won the mile at Millrose a staggering seven times. Also on the Irish team is Irish junior 800m record holder Mark English, who won the open 800m race last week at The Armory.

The race is tomorrow night at 7:40 PM. I'll post the link to the live stream at some time tomorrow.
