Memorable Moments, 2024: Framingham SMR/4x400m At D1 Relays

The first statewide championship meet of the season was not short on talent back in late April with the division state relays taking place at different locales.

At the Division 1 Relays, the Framingham girls’ sprint medley and 4×400-meter relays would give us a preview of what would happen a little more than a month later when it came championship time. The Flyer’ foursome of Catelyn Last, Ava Lombardo, Abby Desmarais and Sasha Lamakina were untouchable in the SMR, combining for time of 4:06.53, nearly eight seconds ahead of runner-up Holliston. The same quartet was on the oval again later in the meet to post an impressive victory and sub four-minute clocking in the 4x400m, combining for a time of 3:58.54, four seconds ahead of second-place Central Catholic.

The Flyers would improve on their efforts by season end. In the 4x400m, Framingham captured the title at the Div. 1 Championships and Meet of Champions. At the latter meet, the Flyers improved on their state-leader with a time of 3:54.44. In mid June down in Philadelphia, the Flyers ran their best time of the season in the SMR. dipping under their previous school record with a time of 4:03.17 to place tenth overall. at the New Balance Nationals.
