Muncan, Douma-Hussar, Reid Go 1-2-3 at New Balance Mile

The top five women milers came home within 1.2 seconds at today's elite mile at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. Former 'Cats Marina Muncan and Carmen Douma-Hussar led current Wildcat all-american Sheila Reid in the top three spots, with Reid setting a new indoor mile PR by 2.2 seconds. Reid took the lead off the slow pace in the final 200 meters, but was unable to hold off Muncan and Douma-Husaar. Muncan came from 4th place at the 1500 meter mark to win the race over the more heralded Douma-Hussar. Reid split 4:17.53 at the 1500 mark. Pending the rest of the weekend results, Reid's time puts her back atop the NCAA performance list at the mile. She also has the NCAA #1 time at 3000 meters.
