Matt Kane & Brian Tetreault Highlight Men's Weekend

Matt Kane ran an 8-second PR over 5000 meters at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational at the Armory. His time of 14:25.55 vaulted Kane (who finished 9th in the race) to the #2 time in the Big East (and NCAA #26) this indoor season. In the 1000 meters, Brian Tetreault ran 2:23.74, also the #2 time in the Big East, and #11 in the NCAA this season. Matt Wikler went 2:25.15 in the race, placing him #6 in the Big East and #20 in the NCAA. Tetreault's and Wickler's times are the top two 1000 meter marks on the squad so far this season.
As mentioned below, freshman newcomer (he arrived at Villanova in January) Sam MacEntee made his Villanova debut in the mile. He finished in 4:09.84, giving Villanova seven milers (Gibney, Mildenhall, Mackenzie, Long, LoRusso, Tetreault, & McEntee) with PRs under 4:10. Finally, competing in Chester at the Widener Indor Invitational, freshman polevaulter Chris Dougherty cleared 14' 5.25" (4,40 m) to gain a Big East qualifier.
