GREENSBORO, N.C. — After finishing a strong second at the State Championships, the Bromfield girls track team continued to perform well at the Nationals in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Emily Jones finished second in the 2-mile with a clocking of 10:22.40, a personal best.

“Emily ran really well,” said Bromfield girls track coach Henry Phelan. “She ran the first mile in 5:19.7 and the second mile in 5:02.7.”

In the 4 X 1 mile relay, Bromfield finished a strong third behind Burnt Hills, New York, and Newton South (Massachusetts). Newton South set a new Massachusetts State record with a time of 20:37.56 with Bromfield finishing in 20:40.96, the second fastest time ever recorded by a Massachusetts school.

“Bo led off the race by running a 5:00.3 mile to put us in the lead. Lisa Reedich then ran a 5:28, followed by Liz Lee with a 5:12. Emily Jones was our anchor and finished with a 4:59.7 mile to come up just short of Newton South, but we earned a strong third-place finish.

“We came home with four All-Americans and we finished the season on a high note,” said Phelan. “It was pretty good for a school our size to average 5:10 per mile for four girls. Also it was a pretty good ending to our season and a great way for Bo and Liz to end their high school careers.”
