Villanova Men Dominate Big East XC Championships

The 16th-ranked Villanova men showed off their great depth today in Louisville, KY, winning the Big East cross country title in dominating fashion. The men won the meet with a mere 43 points (a 51 point margin over the runner up Georgetown Hoyas). The men's top five boasted a tiny 15.9 second spread (with Villanova's 6th Mathew Mildenhall only a second behind #5). Villanova had its 6th finisher in the chute before any other of the top five teams had its 2nd runner home. Coach Marcus O'Sullivan had this to say about the team's performance: "We were able to win a championship because the guys came to understand during the week that an opportunity like this does not come around all that often. When you have this much depth and a very talented team there is an opportunity to do really well. Our entire team realized that the only way to have their talent shine through was to fight for it and have a desire to win. Nobody was going to give us a championship; we had to take it and the team understood that sense of urgency." Six Villanova men made All Big East. Georgetown was runner up, with Louisville third. #14 Providence finished fifth.

"Winning today takes some pressure off of me as well as the whole team," O'Sullivan said. "My last words to the guys were not to rest on our laurels for too long. I want them to understand just how good we are and then move on from there. We can savor this for a couple of hours and then get going again as we move forward towards the next two postseason meets."
