Ward and Anuszewski the Story as Cats Open Indoor Season

The Villanova men and women opened the 2011-2012 indoor season over the weekend at the Jack Pyrah Invitational hosted by Haverford College. As is usual for the first indoor meet of the year, times and distances were pretty much unremarkable as the athletes began competition for the year. Such was not the case, however, for Shericka Ward, who broke two meet records (in the 55 meters and 300 meters), and freshman Faith Dismuke who herself set a new meet standard in the 500 meters, surpassing Makalia Griffith's previous record from 2006. Freshman Leanne Tucker made her Villanova debut a winning one, taking the 800 meters in 2:20.32. Other winners were Amanda Borroughs in a tight 1000 meters (3:30.32), Emerald Walden over the 55 meter hurdles (8.19), and Kathleen McPhillips in the pole vault (3.65 meters).

For the men, thrower Frank Anuszewski won both the shot and weight throw, setting new PRs in each event and setting a new meet record with his 18.69 meter weight throw. Freshman Elbert Maxwell set a new meet record in the long jump, going 7.23 meters on his initial effort. Other Villanova winners were Sam Ellison in the 1000 meters (2:33.80), Greg Morrin in the 3000 meters (8:40.31), and Chris Dougherty in the pole vault (4.40 meters).

Next up for the squads is the Gotham Cup in New York City on January 13th at the Armory.
