AVON — Forgive Elizabeth Flynn if she would have preferred to still be on the beach in Fort Lauderdale.

Who wouldn’t, after all? But the Avon senior pushed memories of her recent spring break trip aside to help the Eagles girls track team have sunny outcome at the 42nd Avon Jim Reynolds Relays on Saturday.

Avon broke open a tight meet in the last three events to win the title for the sixth straight year and for the 13th time overall. They also won the meet in 1977, ’78, ’88, ’92, ’94, 2000 and ’01.

“I think that this is special for us, especially since it’s our home field,” Flynn said. “It’s nice to get some good competition and win it. I just came back from spring break yesterday so it was a little rough, but I actually got some pretty good times with my relays. I’m happy how I ran and I’m happy with how my relays did. Overall, I’m pretty proud with it.”

Flynn and fellow senior Jules Frombach were big reasons Avon kept its steak alove. Both were on the winning 4×400, which had a time of 4:11.15. Flynn anchored the 400-meter leg of the winning sprint medley (1:55.59) while Frombach anchored the 1,600-meter leg of the winning distance medley relay (13:23.41). Flynn was also a member of the runner-up 4×200 (1:50.12) and Frombach was on the 4×800 (10:23.14) which also finished second.
