UPDATED: DeVeau Finishes 5th at EMass Cross-Country Championships

WRENTHAM – Framingham sophomore Abby Deveau finished fifth at the Eastern Massachusetts cross-country championship meet in Wrentham Development Center on Saturday.

Next up for Deveau would have been the state championship on November 16, but DeVeau fractured her foot in the meet, said head coach Jill Conroy.

Newton South senior Lucy Jenks won the meet in a personal record of 18.14 minutes.

Deveau’s time was 19.22.5 minutes.

More than 150 female runners competed on Saturday.

Framingham finished 19th out of 21 teams competing.

“The injury was a culmination of things with an ankle roll earlier and a very wet muddy course on Saturday,” said Conroy.

“The Division 1 girls were the 6th race on the course and by then it was torn up; muddy and very slippery.  Abby worked with the front pack the whole race battling for a top 10 position the whole race.  It was an exciting race to watch and our girls showed strength in tough conditions,” said Conroy.

Framingham senior captain Kirsten Harrod was the second Flyer across the finish line in 113th place. Her time was 22:48.1 minutes.

Senior Tess Robinson was 115th overall in 22:57.6 minutes.

Freshman Maya Aylesworth was 122nd overall in 23:24.5 minutes.

Senior Paige Fisher was 123rd overall in 23:24.51 minutes

Framingham High freshman Mia DeMore was 140th overall with a personal record of 24:21.5 minutes.

The Flyers finished the season 1-7 overall.
