NEW HAVEN — Emily Alexandru of Trumbull has a different mindset when she competes in the postseason against tough competition — run hard early. Alexandru took the lead in the first lap of the 600-meter run and held on to win in 1:37.32 at the Class LL girls’ indoor track championships in New Haven on Thursday.

Glastonbury won the team title with 69 points. Hall was second with 55 and Danbury third with 48.

“I just came up to the line and decided to go out hard,” Alexandru said. “I usually run from the back and use my kick at the end. But it’s not that easy in the postseason meets with the tough competition here.

“I took the early lead and I knew Zoe Harris (Greenwich) was on my back. I’ve run against her a lot. But I just kept running hard and was able to hold on for the win.”

Kali Holden took third in the 1600-meter run with a time of 5:09.64. She was fifth in the 3200 with a time of 11:23.21.

Ally Zaffina ran an 11:11.63 to place third in the 3200-meter run.

Evelyn Marchand, Holden, Zaffina and Alexandru were fourth in the 4x800 relay with a time of 9:32.75.

Alexandru was 5th in the 300 (43.35).
