Villanova 2012 Big East Qualifiers After One Event


Yesterday in the Big Five  at Franklin Field, Villanova had their first meet of the season. Most of the big names that competed late in the indoor season (Emily Lipari, Shericka Ward, Sam Ellison, Sam McEntee) were absent, but the biggest name, senior All-American Sheila Reid competed in two events, and won both of them handily. Don't look at times at this point, they're largely inconsequential for these purposes this early in the season, but 16 total athletes received Big East qualifying times including 13 women, setting up the ladies for a potential run at a Big East outdoor championship this year.

Here is the list of qualifiers:
