*Third place for Lily Jin in the 800-meter run.
Other individual medalists included Lauren Caughey (8th place in the 800 meter) and Audrey Fitzpatrick (7th place in the mile).
The girls’ 4×100 relay team placed 5th with runners Abby Lothian, Ellie Bedard, Maiwen Kamdje and Tamai Withers. The girls’ 4×400 relay team placed 8th with Grace Wheelan, Lauren Caughey, Elizabeth Lahive and Lily Jin. The girls’ 4×800 team placed 6th with runners Zoe Maggioni, Delaney Dyer, Kayo Sakurai and Grace Wheelan.

Medals were awarded at the meet to athletes and teams who placed up to 8th place. Wellesley competed as a Division 1School. The WMS team is coached by Patty McCarthy, Katie Erikson and Mark Bugden.
The performances of the WMS students bodes well for the already strong Wellesley High track & field and cross country teams.
