The Branford High graduate continues her track success at Keene, taking first at the ECAC Championships.

Branford's Maggie Fitter raced to a first-place finish in the 800-meter race at the ECAC Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Ned Harkness Track & Field on Friday.

Fitter posted a winning time of 2:12.31. She is in contention to run the event at the NCAA Division III Championships next weekend at Claremont Mud Scripps College in California.
