Schappert Runs to World University Games 1500m Final

Today in Kazan, Russia former Villanova All-American Nicole Schappert advanced on time into Friday's 1500 meter final at the World University Games.  Schappert ran 4:17.15 to finish 6th in the faster of two semi-final heats (see complete results below) to qualify for the 12-person final.  The top four finishers in each of two heats plus the next four fastest finishers were all advanced into the final.  The top 8 finishers in heat 1 all ran faster than the winner of heat 2, and Schappert was 6th fastest overall.  She owns a 4:07.79 PR over 1500 meters.  She will attempt to join her Villanova teammate Marina Muncan (who won in 2009) as a 1500m gold medalist at the Games.
