Two Bedford High School quartets were medalists in Friday’s Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association Division 4 relays at Boston’s Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center.

The boys’ 4-by-800-meter relay team took third place in their race with a time of 8:28.31. In the process, they set a school record – more than three seconds faster than the previous record set in 2018.

The running order was Josh Garraway, Oren Brosgol, Jonny Garraway, and Carter Rauch. Their outcome was less than five seconds off the winning time.
