The College final is the first of two consolation tiers. La Salle and St. Joe's are in the Eastern final, which is up next.
Morgan State took that race in 46.31.
The high school girls 4x800 Championship of America race is now underway. Local participants are Neumann-Goretti, Strath Haven and Padua Academy of Wilmington, Delaware.
Holmwood has extended its lead with now three laps to go.
Holmwood finishes the job, winning in 8:48.33. Neumann-Goretti comes in second in 8:57.09.
The college women's 4x1500 championship is on now, and Villanova is leading. Indiana's in second.
Indiana now comes to the front. Eastern Michigan is in third, looking for an upset. (I suppose Indiana is looking or an upset now, but they're usually among the top schools.)
Nicole Hutchinson, who ran the 1200 for Villanova in the DMR yesterday, is anchoring the 4x1500 today.
Indiana may well win this.
But the gap is closing as Hutchinson takes the baton. Here they go.
And that gap has now closed.
Hutchinson is just biding her time now.
Hutchinson takes the lead.
Into the bell lap they go. Villanova leads Indiana.
And now Hutchinson is turning on the jets, growing the lead for Villanova down the back stretch. A great run.
Villanova wins a great race. 17:35.48 is the final time.
