A foursome from Watertown High School finished third place at the New Balance Outdoor National, the highest finish for a team from the school.
The sprint relay team of sophomore Nicholas Cordeiro, junior Vasken Kebabjian, senior Austin Lin and senior Jeremy Breen ran a 3:37.25 and finished third of 60 teams in the Emerging Elite competition at the meet at North Carolina A&T in Grensboro, N.C. In the race, the first two legs are 200 meters, the third is 400 meters and the final one is 800 meters.
The finish is the highest ever for a Watertown team in 40 years of the competition.
The Raiders team could not compete under the Watertown High School name due to MIAA rules, so they named themselves Shamrock Track Club.
Lin also ran the 400 in 50.74 and finished 34th in the Emerging Elite race.
