Girls' Preview For BAA Invitational Scholastic Mile


On Monday, more than 30,000 runners will make their way from Hopkinton to Copley Square for the 122nd edition of the Boston Marathon. As part of the pre-Marathon festivities two days earlier, two high school athletes from each of the seven towns and cities along the 26-2-mile route will compete in the BAA Invitational Scholastic Mile. In last year's event, Natick's Grace Connolly established a meet record of 5 minutes,  4.8 seconds. She held off runner-up, Newton South's Clare Martin, who also went under the CR with her time of 5:07.1. Connolly will not be back to defend her title and Martin has since graduated. Who will reign supreme at this Saturday's event? Here's a list of some of the top competitors, plus the remaining entries that will grace the starting line on Boylston Street.
