It was all about fast times and strong team performances at Saturday's Bay State Invitational. Held under a slight mist at the Wrentham Developmental Center, a total of five boys went under 16 minutes on the moderately-challenging five-kilometer course, including three from the same school! For girls, six dipped below 19 minutes. In the team competition, three of the six champions needed 36 points or less to take home their plaques.
