As the 2024 interscholastic track and field season comes to a close, it’s fair to say that the future looks bright.

That was exemplified by the results of last weekend’s New England Outdoor Track and Field Championship at the University of New Hampshire. Three Bedford High individuals and the girls’ 4-by-800-meter relay team qualified to compete.

“They put in some good performances against the top runners from across New England,” said BHS Coach Rich Donnelly. He noted that each of the six states sends up to six athletes for each event in the New England meet.

Madeline McInnis led the Bedford delegation, placing 11th in the 200 meter with a time of 26.02 seconds. She is finishing her freshman year. Zadie Buckley placed 19th in the 800 in 2 minutes, 22.08 seconds. She is a sophomore – at least until the end of next week.

The girls four-by-800 relay team placed 20th in a time of 10:09.55. Farrah Scott, who graduated last week, was joined by underclasswomen Grace Niu, Anna Massaro, and Buckley.

The other BHS graduate, Jonathan Garraway, placed 22nd in the 1,600 with a time of 4:28.33 and 29th in the 800 in 2 minutes, 5.13 seconds.

The girls’ and boys’ 4×800 teams are scheduled to compete at the Nike Outdoor Nationals on Friday. The boys’ team is Will Protasowicki, Oren Brosgol, Garraway, and Carter Rauch.
