VU Women Take Big East Indoor Title


For the first time in ten years, the Villanova women have won the Big East Indoor title. The 4 x 800 victory in the next-to-last event of the meet pushed the Villanova team past Louisville and to an 8-point team victory.

Reid won the conference title in the mile (where Reid, Nicole Schappert, and Brooke Simpson went 1-2-5 in the final), the 1000 meters (where Reid and Nicole Schappert went 1-2), and anchored the conference champion 4 x 800 meters relay team.
