Just a few days after finishing 29th at Nike Cross Nationals in San Diego, Katie Brislin of Fayetteville-Manlius (Manlius, NY) committed to Villanova on December 11th. Brislin earned a trip to the national championship by virtue of her 8th place finish at the NXN New York Regional, where she ran the 5K course in 18:48.40.
Brislin comes from a national track and cross country powerhouse. Two weeks ago the Fayetteville-Manlius girls won their 7th consecutive cross country national championship. Villanova recently lost out on Brislin's teammate Jillian Fanning, who signed with Providence on December 4th. Brislin will join former teammate Courtney Chapman, currently a sophomore on Gina Procaccio's Villanova women's squad.
