Philippides competed in the 1,000-meter run and posted a time of 2:51.30 that was good enough for the best time in New England. Her time was over two seconds faster than the second place finisher from Westerly, R.I. In addition, Philippides also competed in the 4×800-meter relay, as she joined teammates Hetty McMillan, Zoe Harris and Genevieve DeWinter. The relay team finished second in New England, posting a time of 9:19.62. Also competing in an individual event at the New England championships was DeWinter, who battled in the 600-meter run and placed seventh overall, netting a time of 1:36.53.
