EMass Division State Meet: Large School Recaps

Eastern Massachusetts Division 1 Girls

Lowell made it a clean sweep in Division 1 by also taking the girls' crown. The Red Raiders defeated second-place Lexington, 72-94. Led by a runner-up finish from Olivia Sheffield (18:36.07), Lowell had its top four before Lexington's second runner crossed the line to take the title.

Newton South's Caroline Barry, who a month ago won the Class C race at the Bay State Invitational, also at Wrentham claimed the individual title in a near-identical time of 18:26.95 under much colder conditions. Barry played it conservatively, holding back with the pack at the first mile, passed in 5:40. She took the lead shortly after and won by 10 seconds.
