Merrimack Valley’s Kristie Schoffield ran to a second-place finish in the 800-meter run at the Brooks PR Invitational in Shoreline, Wash., on Saturday.

Schoffield’s time of 2 minutes, 7.13 seconds was just shy of first-place finisher Rachel McArthur (2:05.68) out of Virginia’s Patriot High School. New Hampshire was well represented in the event as Bedford’s Leya Salis (2:07.32) finished third. Second through fifth place was separated by 0.66 seconds.

Schoffield, who will attend Boise State next year, is fresh off a New England title in the 800. She won last weekend in Norwell, Mass., with a time of 2:06.9.
