PHILADELPHIA – The Stanford women were second in the distance medley relay Thursday, one of the showcase collegiate events at the 120th Penn Relays at Franklin Field.

Villanova’s Emily Lipari kicked past Stanford’s Aisling Cuffe on the final lap of the anchor leg to give the Wildcats the victory. Villanova ran 10:57.35 to Stanford’s 10:57.35 in an event that combines legs of, in order, 1,200, 400, 800, and 1,600 meters.

The Stanford team ran strong throughout. Amy Weissenbach opened with a split of 3:24.83 (1,200), Kristyn Williams followed in 52.37 (400), Claudia Saunders ran 2:04.58 (800), and Cuffe finished with 4:35.86 (1,600).

On Friday, Stanford is scheduled to compete in the women’s 4x1500 and the men’s distance medley relays. Stanford won three consecutive 4x1500’s at the Penn Relays from 2004-06. The Stanford men are the reigning NCAA indoor DMR champs.
