Gayathri Narayanan ‘21 placed second in the 800 at the Greater Middlesex Conference championships and is also undefeated in the mile and 800 at dual meets.

“Hailey Matz is a young and upcoming sprinter that has some great potential,” said Coach John Krajunus.  “Our two senior throwers, Rania Alaboura and Jenna Kipnis, are great leaders and are the type of girls I can always depend on. I was happy for them when they walked out of the GMC Championships with medals around their neck.”

The varsity team was small this year (with only six upperclassmen), and Krajunus is “excited about what will happen in the next few years.”
