SACO, MAINE – Framingham High had two girls qualify for the national track meet today, June 8.

Framingham High sophomore Sophie Albright finished 3rd in the high jump at the New England regional track meet in Saco, Maine.

“It was a tough approach area,” said track coach Chris Collins.

Framingham High graduate Grace Poku finished 6th in the 100-meter race with a time of 12.54 seconds.

“The Flyers will be sending 3 athletes to nationals for individual events,” said Collins. “A first as far as I know.”

Track captain Poku will run Emerging Elite in the 100 meters, said Collins.

Framingham High graduate Ben Burgess, also a captain, will run Emerging Elite in the 2 mile, said Collins.
