Akande & Lipari Lead Villanova Women at Haverford

The #10 Villanova women opened the 2012 cross country campaign today at the Main Line Invitational at Haverford. The squad was headed up by the top two returning harriers from last year's team that finished 3rd at the NCAA national meet. With Sheila Reid and Bogdana Mimic gone, the ladies have to find a new 1-2 tandem for 2012. Akande and Lipari -- who toggled back and forth last year in the 3 and 4 spots on the squad -- looked to be the logical candidates; they did not disappoint today.

The race was won by LaSalle's Meghan McGlinchey, who came home 10 seconds ahead of a train of seven straight Villanova women. Villanova's top five had a very nice 1-5 spread of only 29 seconds over this 3 mile course. Akande and Lipari were followed next by Summer Cook (who ran 51 seconds faster than at last year's meet) and Stephanie Schappert (who likewise improved by 25 seconds) in 4th and 5th. Coach Gina Procaccio debuted frosh Margey Kelsey, who ran impressively and finished 6th overall (5th for the team). The other two parts of Procaccio's super distance recruiting class -- Angel Piccirillo and Caitlin Bungo -- were held out of today's meet.

Villanova's competitors finished this way:
