By John Nepolitan / May 6, 2008 koons08.jpg Being a double winner at a meet like the Big East Championships is a major accomplishment for any athlete. For Villanova's Frances Koons this was the conclusion of a great college career, but not her greatest victory. Koons greatest victory was her win over cancer. After being diagnosed in 2006 with clear cell renal cell carcinoma, Koons had the tumor removed from her left kidney then started her build up for her final races in college. This past weekend after taking the 1500 title, Koons returned to her home track to claim her final Big East title. For her comeback, Frances Koons, has been named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week for the week of May 5th.
