BOSTON – The Framingham High girls indoor 4X200 relay team won the Bay State Conference championship yesterday, February 9 at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston
Sophomore Ella Terranova (28.6 split), senior captain Priscilla Mota (27.2), sophomore Abby Desmairis (26.1), and sophomore Maya Bishop (25.6) won the event in 1:47.43.
That is the best time in the state, said coach Chris Collins.
The time qualified them for nationals.
“I just work with the relays a bit as does Coach John Sullivan. We knew coming in it was going to be a fight; they had a lead on us earlier this year head-to-head and we ended up winning, so we were expecting their best for revenge. They (Wellesley) are a great team, but coming off last seasons 4×100 title we feel like we have to prove that it was no fluke and they help bring out the best in us as they are #2 in the 4×200 right now,” said Framingham High girls indoor track coach Ed Crowley.
Wellesley was disqualified during the Bay State Conference meet event.
The Tigers of Newton North finished second in 1:49.35 minutes. Brookline finished third.
Natick high sprinters Catherine O’Neil, Trinity Vickers, Elsa Bashor, and Lyla Sneed finished 7th in 1:57.63.
The Division 1 state championship meet is Saturday, February 19 at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston.
