McElroy & Mimic Hit Big East Qualifiers at the Armory

At the Armory in New York City, graduate student Kelly McElroy (left), who ran for William & Mary as an undergrad, came 4th in the 1000 meters in 2:50.37, a Big East automatic qualifier. Her time is the second fastest on the team so far this season, trailing only Emily Lipari's 2:49.06 from January 15th. Shannon Browne (27th in 2:59.51), Nicky Akande (32nd in 3:02.39), and Kaitlyn O'Sullivan (36th in 3:06.76) also competed at that distance.
Bogdana Mimic won the top-level 3000 meter "championship" race, also in a Big East auto qualifier, in 9:17.34 (a time 10 seconds slower than her 2010 indoor best). She was not pushed in the race, winning by almost 8 seconds. Callie Hogan was 11th in the race, in 10:03.93. Sarah Morrison ran in the 3000 "Eastern" race, and came second, in 10:03.48.
Emily Lipari was 6th in the mile, in a time, 4:47.54, almost identical to her mile time last week, 4:47.03. Villanova signee Amanda Borroughs ran in the Junior Girls mile race, and finished 7th in 5:00.84.
Recent Villanova graduate Ellen Dougherty ran in the open 1500 meter race and finished third, in 4:21.62.
