VILLANOVA, Pa.--The official heat sheets for this weekend's BIG EAST Championships were released on Thursday night and Villanova will open competition in the conference meet on Saturday morning at the New York Armory, where the two-day BIG EAST Championships will be held. Entries in 11 different events (six running events, five field events) have the Wildcats poised to enjoy a successful meet during the weekend.

"We are ready to go," Villanova head coach Marcus O'Sullivan said. "The team is healthy and I am happy with the way that all of our guys have prepared themselves to compete this weekend. I am expecting us to have a good meet."

The action gets underway from the Armory on Saturday morning and the first running event in which the Wildcats will have an entry is the 500 meters, which goes off at 1:40 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.

All of the running events except for the longer distance events (3000 meters, 5000 meters) will have preliminaries contested, with the finals to follow on Sunday afternoon. In addition, teams will go head to head in the 4x400 meter relay, the 4x800 meter relay and the distance medley relay.
