Two Villanova athletes earned All-America honors at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships held over the weekend in Nampa, Idaho.

Sophomore Samuel McEntee captured fourth place in the mile but his time of 4 minutes, 1.91 seconds was only .25 seconds off the winning time. His finishing 400-meter split of 54.95 seconds topped the field.

Senior Shericka Ward finished seventh in the final of the 60-meter hurdles. Her time of 8.16 seconds matched her qualifying time.

Sophomore Emily Lipari clocked a time of 4:44.66 in her qualifying heat of the women's mile but did not qualify for the final. The men's distance medley team did not finish its race after being involved in a collision late in the first leg.
