Bedford High School’s Indoor track team was well represented at the Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association (MSTCA) annual indoor Division 4 relays held at Roxbury Community College’s Reggie Lewis Center on Sunday, January 15.

The  Bedford Boys 4×800 team — junior Liam Silver, freshman Andrew Presti, senior Brendan Goodhue, and sophomore Jasper Shapiro — got the day started by winning their heat with a time of 9:05.97.  The race was a nail-biter right down to the finish, with the Tewksbury team hot on Bedford’s heels.
