Now consider that e 2nd place runner, Amyah Santana of Wachusett Regional, was a full 5.21 seconds behind Tewksbury's Makayla Paige, who easily added another title to her trophy case.
Paige's winning time of 1:30.61 was nine-tenths of a second off her own meet record, set in 2019, but she made quick work of a field that featured several of the best middle distance runners in the state.
600, but Tewksbury’s Makayla Paige looked smooth and in control as she easily captured her third consecutive All-State title in 1:30.61. “It was a tough race and there were some really good runners,” said Paige. “I wanted to take it out hard and not have someone sneak up on me.”— Jeanine Anderson (@billericarocks) February 22, 2020
