The Villanova Women's Cross-Country team came through yet again at the national championships today, winning their program's 9th and Villanova's 19th team national championship. This comes one year after the Wildcats' last national title in the sport.
Villanova was followed by Florida State in second, Texas Tech in third and Georgetown rounding out the top-4.
Sheila Reid lead the team and the field to bring home the individual national title. She was running alongside Georgetown's Emily Infield and Oregon's Jordan Hasay before breaking into a sprint to take the lead in the final 200 meters. It took Reid just 20 minutes, 6.9 seconds to finish the 6,000-meter course.
The last time the XC 'Cats won back-to-back titles was during their string of 6 national championships from 1989-94.
Congratulations to Women's Cross Country on their outstanding performance this season!
The Villanova Men's cross-country team also made the trip to Terre Haute, Indiana for the National Championship meet and came in 23rd. They had one top-100 finisher, Mathew Mildenhall. Full results were posted on Villanova Running.
