FloTrack Tabs Sheila Reid as #2 Woman in NCAA Cross Country

FloTrack has posted their initial set of awards, and three Villanova runners are highlighted. In the ranking of the top individual women in the country this cross country season, Sheila Reid is ranked #2, behind #1 Kendra Schaff (a recent transfer to UNC from Washington) and ahead of #3 Jordan Hasay (Oregon). Here is what FloTrack said about Sheila:

2. Sheila Reid -- Villanova

Reid was undefeated through last year's regular season and regional. She ran a gutsy race in Terre Haute helping her team to the National Title. In indoor, she set a big time PB of 9:01.13 3k and became an All-American twice over. She was fourth in the 1500 meters in the outdoor NCAA Championships.

Also cited was Amanda Marino, as the #2 ranked "sleeper" who might be able to steal the individual title.

Also, Emily Lipari is listed among the so-called notable "FloFrosh."

Finally, FloTrack's top teams are ranked this way: (1) Villanova, (2) Florida State, and (3) Washington, with Oregon as the "sleeper" team to worry about.
