Looking Back: Penn Relays 2012

In the BCS era of college athletics, any year where a small private school like Villanova can do something on a national scale is a good one, especially in a non-revenue sport, where the huge state schools reign supreme.

Sheila Reid's amazing career at Villanova was an example of a smaller school triumphing over much larger ones. Her final major win at Villanova was last year at the Penn Relays, when she bided her time behind Tennessee's anchor for three laps in the distance medley relay before finally making her move in the final lap to win comfortably, earning a Penn Relays watch, the only major accomplishment she had yet to achieve as a collegian.

The Penn Relays for Villanova start this Thursday with the women's distance medley relay.
