11:37 a.m. UPDATE!
Congrats to our men's 4x1 foursome of Biyerem Okengwu, Christian Tobias, Sean Suber and Kadeem Hunter! Their time of 41.33 is the best the Hoyas have run this season! Official results from the women's 1,500: Emily Infeld in second (4:25.00), Lauren Borduin in fourth (4:26.90), Madeline Chambers in fifth (4:27.14) and Rachel Schneider in seventh (4:27.58). The women's 1,500 was a pretty conservative race through the first 1,100 meters, bell lap proved to be a much quicker split and ended with an all-out sprint between Sheila Reid and Emily Infeld - very similar to how this year's NCAA Cross Country Championship ended.
11:33 a.m. UPDATE!
Emily Infeld takes second in the women's 1,500 behind Villanova's Sheila Reid. The two have battled all year against each other and unfortunately today, Sheila had the edge as she was competing on her home track.
11:28 a.m. UPDATE!
And here we go with the women's 1,500!
11:17 a.m. UPDATE!
That time is the fastest time run by a Hoya foursome this season!
11:15 a.m. UPDATE!
Georgetown takes fourth place in the men's 4x1 with a time of 41.33!
