The girls' freshman all-time best at 400m could be in danger of being broken given the way Emma Gallant has been running the last couple of weeks. Gallant surprised everyone at the New England Championship when she won the title at 200m. Her 24.81, should mean good things for the longer 400m. 56.57 is the all-time state best in the event run by her teammate Emily Turner two years ago. Alexandra Hart of Thornton Academy has the freshman best at 56.87
