James Robinson girls 4x200 at the Suffolk Stars Invite last weekend in Hampton. (Photo by Nicoll Knudsen) Three Northern Region schools in James Robinson, Lake Braddock, and West Springfield ventured north to the New York Armory for the New Balance Games and put their best relays on the fast 200 meter banked track. The results were two state leading performances and additional swift times clocked by other relays.
The crowd keep buzzing afterward, the way an audience sounds when they are still trying to accept the moment into reality. That’s how it sounded after the boys 4x200 at the New Balance Games – a buzzing that signified both awe and admiration.
Then the race concluded, Natasha Hastings walked in the media room and sprawled across a black couch in the corner and settled in. She’s always been comfortable at the Armory.
