VILLANOVA, Pa. - A world-class facility is the host site for the BIG EAST Indoor Track & Field Championships this weekend, as 14 women's and 13 men's teams descend on the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio. The conference meet will be held on Saturday and Sunday and the entire meet will be streamed live online completely free of charge.

To this point in the indoor track & field season Villanova has competed in five different meets and qualified athletes for the conference championship in nine running events, three field events and the pentathlon. The Wildcats have also qualified for the three relay events that are part of the meet program.
In its most recent meet Villanova ran the fastest time in the nation this season in the distance medley relay at the Armory Collegiate Invitational on February 1. The winning time for the Wildcats in that race was 10:56.74 and Villanova won the relay by a margin of more than eight seconds against a nine-team field which included two other BIG EAST entries.
Last year at the conference meet the Wildcats won two individual titles and one relay championship while producing All-BIG EAST performances in seven different events.
