Villanova Recruit Josh Lampron Runs Fastest 1500m In The Nation

On Saturday night, Villanova track recruit Josh Lampron  (Mansfield, MA) ran the fastest 1500m time in the nation by more than five seconds running 3:45.70 and finishing sixth as an unattached runner in a college meet. For those who don't know, his time is roughly the equivalent of a 4:03 mile. Lampron's run was the third fastest high school 1500 in Massachusetts history and the 18th fastest in history for American high schoolers. We'll see how he does in the near future, but it looks like Marcus O'Sullivan has found himself quite a good high school miler.

Notable for Villanova this weekend, half-miler Chris FitzSimons ran 1:48.91 in the 800m, which is the fastest 800 for a Villanova runner since Matt Gibney ran 1:48.66 last season. That time qualified him for regionals.
