The Tabor Academy girls 4x100 meter relay broke a longstanding school record last weekend.

The boys and girls teams hosted Thayer Academy at home over the weekend, and the girls relay ran a record time of 51.09 seconds.

The relay team was made up exclusively of underclassmen. Ava Lomberto of Franklin, Ayla Sahin of Barrington, RI and Sarah Adams of Mattapoisett are all freshmen, and Cate Parks of Marion is a sophomore.

Tabor’s previous record, set in 1995, was 52.29 seconds.

Also highlighting the meets were senior Sam Hazzard of Dartmouth’s throws of 49’3” in the shotput and 116’7” in the discus.

Other notable performances and personal bests were recorded by Sahin, running 60.93 seconds for 400 meters, Brooke Coen of Lakeville, covering 15’0.25” in the long jump, Nicole Joffe of Hingham, clearing 4’8” in the high jump, Parks, running 28.08 seconds in the 200 meter dash and Stephane Voltaire of Brockton, throwing 40’3” in the boys shot put.

The Tabor teams host Governor’s Academy at home again this weekend.
