The Watertown 4 x 200 indoor relay team made history by finishing third at Friday's New England meet held at the Reggie Lewis center. At a gathering where the top six schools in each event from the six New England states compete against each other, the foursome of seniors Talia Flores, Lauren Basile, Meagan Kelly, and junior Christelle Madou simply left no doubt that they are one of the premier teams in all of New England.

Every event in a state championship provides excitement and drama, but this year the relays may decide the team title. But don't expect to see the same line-ups from last week. Some additional fresh legs --courtesy of athletes that did not qualify in an individual event-- may help the common man become the hero. We watched it happen on Sunday at the Division 1 Championships, and those same teams remain in the hunt this week.
Many events are wide-open as the seniors take one last shot at glory.
Hamilton-Wenham posted some impressive distance times, but Lynnfield would fight them off by 4 points for the team title.
