NEW YORK - Redshirt freshman Josh Lampron (Mansfield, Mass.) ran a strong anchor leg and Villanova came in second in the Byron Dyce College Men's 4x800 Meter Relay at the Millrose Games on Saturday afternoon. The world-famous meet was held at the New York Armory and the Wildcats registered a time of 7:31.57 in the relay.

Lampron followed senior Chris O'Sullivan (Havertown, Pa.), graduate student Mike Palmisano (Dresher, Pa.) and freshman Ben Malone (River Vale, N.J.) and Villanova was a close second to Duke at the finish line. The Blue Devils paced the field of seven teams with a winning time of 7:30.06. Monmouth rounded out the top three with a time of 7:32.16.

O'Sullivan opened with a split of 1:54.7 on the first leg of the relay and Palmisano ran 1:52.5 on the second leg. After Malone took the baton and had a split of 1:53.9, Lampron ran the anchor leg in a personal best split of 1:50.5. O'Sullivan also set a new personal best for a relay with his split, as did Palmisano.

Villanova will return to the New York Armory next weekend for the BIG EAST Championships.
