Hopedale's Rita Maurais Breaks Frosh-Soph 1000 Meter Meet Record Jan 6, 2014

  Hopedale's Rita Maurais turned the 1000-meter run into a one girl act at yesterday's MSTCA Auerbach Freshman/Sophomore Small Schools Invitational on the Reggie Lewis Center oval. Maurais snatched the lead from the gun and was never challenged as she raced to a personal best and meet record of 3 minutes, 3.02 seconds. Her time bettered the 3:04.07 run two years ago by Alexia Lipman of Bromfield and was the lone meet record on the day.
