Josh Lampron, who won the 2011 New Balance Outdoor Nationals mile championship last June as a junior, signed a letter of intent on February 4th to run for Marcus O'Sullivan's Villanova squad. At New Balance Nationals last year Lampron, who hails from Mansfield, Massachusetts, won gold by setting a new mile PR of 4:05.99 -- the 6th fastest mile run by a US prep in 2011. His 2011 indoor 1000 meter time of 2:29.77 was the 10th fastest in the country last year. Lampron is the reigning Massachusetts state champion in both the indoor mile and outdoor 800 meters. Lampron started off the 2011 cross country season as the #9 ranked harrier in the United States, according to Mile Split, before an injury derailed his season.
