Julie Williams Debuts with 2nd Place Finish at Big 5 Invitational

Williams is unattached, for now
In a reversal of the normal pattern in these matters, Gina Procaccio held back her top runners today at the Big 5 Invitational, while Marcus O'Sullivan let his big dogs run.  While the men's Jordy Williamsz won the race for the Villanova men (see separate post on the men's race), newcomer Julie Williams (Tatnall, DE) made it a Williamsz-Williams day (or, more accurately, a Williams-Williamsz day, since the women went off before the men) at Belmont Plateau.  The women ran 4 loops of the 1K course, with Williams, running unattached, coming 2nd in 14:29.37, some 20 seconds behind race winner Elizabeth Barrett of St. Joseph's.  Caitlin Bungo was the first official Villanova vest across the line in 8th, some 17 seconds behind Williams.  The full race results are available HERE.

The Villanova order of finish looked as follows:

2.  Julie Williams (u)      14:29.37

15. Megan Venables          14:53.29
19. Alex Russo (u)          14:57.38
