Bossong Lowers State Best in 400 to 55.66 in Boston


Cheverus sophomore sprint star Victoria Bossong competed unattached at the Boston University Last Chance Invitational in the 400m. Bossong was chasing the New Balance Indoor Nationals Championship qualifying mark of 56.54.

Running in section four Bossong burst out to an early lead in lane six as she made it to the cut in mark well ahead of the field as she crossed 200m in 25.61. She would hold on to win in a new personal best 55.66, a mark that shattered her previous state all-time best of 57.05, and easily punched her ticket to nationals.

Scarborough's Noah Drapeau ran in the rarely contested 500m race posting a time of 1:07.37, the mark is a new all-time state best in the event.

Emma White of Cheverus competed in the triple jump where she hit a personal best mark of 11.54m which converts to a personal best mark of 37-10.25 to move up to the 4th best performer in state indoor history in the event.
