Sheila Reid finally made her 2013 indoor debut with a solid victory in the invitational mile at the Penn State National meet in State College. Reid shattered the facility record by 5.5 seconds, and set a new PR in running an essentially solo effort ahead of the field, which she gapped by a full 7 seconds. Reid's previous PR was 4:35.30 from the 2011 New Balance Games in Boston. As the results below show, the race was well stocked with Villanova milers, and Emily Lipari (3rd in 4:39.36) and Angel Piccirillo (5th in 4:40.08) registered NCAA top-10 times. Next up for Reid is the Wanamaker Mile at the Millrose Games.
