Two recent Villanova milers are entered in the Aileen Meagher International Track Classic this Sunday in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Nicole Schappert & Frances Koons, both running under former Georgetown coach Frank Gagliano at the New Jersey-New York Track Club, carry into the race the best PRs but face strong competition from several Canadian runners. The race is scheduled for 8:35 pm on Sunday, July 10.
Also at the meet, Canadian Allan Brett, who ran at Villanova during the 2006-2007 campaign before transferring to the University of Guelph, will contest the 1500 meters. He carries a 3:47.63 PR into the meet.
Joining Koons and Schappert on the NJ-NY Track club are former Villanovans Sean Tully and Marina Muncan and eleven other top-level post-collegiate athletes. To visit the team's website, click the title of this post.
