PICCIRILLO MAKING STRONG CONTRIBUTIONS AT VILLANOVA
Competed in Big East Finals this past weekend

2/19/2013

Homer-Center graduate Angel Piccirillo competed for Villanova in the indoor track and field Big East Finals this past weekend. 
 
Piccirillo took second in the 1000m, coming in hundredths of a second behind the amazing Nova junior, Emily Lipari.
 
  1 Emily Lipari              JR VILLANOVA              2:46.19S  10           
  2 Angel Piccirillo          FR VILLANOVA              2:46.33S   8           
  3 Rachel Schneider          SR GEORGETOWN             2:46.86S   6 
 
In the distant medley relay, Nova came in with a close second.  Piccirillo ran a strong 800m leg.  A couple of weak handoffs probably took the team far enough back to miss that coveted first place.

     1) Kelly Curran JR                 2) Amber Lalla SO                      
     3) Rebecca Tracy SR                4) Alexa Aragon JR  
 
In the 4 x 8 relay, Nova ran four strong legs.  Piccirillo ran the second leg and stayed ahead of the pack to make a very  smooth handoff.  In the fourth leg, Emily Lipari was sliding between second and third place. Coming into the last turn of the race, she was  in second and looked like she might get beat to the line.  Somewhere, somehow, in the last thirty yards she found the “amazing” gear and pulled ahead for the Nova win.
