About this Article
Barrington's run of consecutive girls swimming and diving conference championships, which covered two decades, was finished by fractions of seconds. Fremd earned narrow victories against its Barrington competitors in the first two relays of the Mid-Suburban League meet on Saturday, the 200 -yard medley and the 200 free relays. If meet host Barrington had won either of those two races, the team standings would have ended up differently. But Fillies coach Jim Bart and his team were nothing but gracious in seeing their enduring reign of dominance end in the blink of an eye. "First and foremost, we offer our congratulations to Fremd," said Bart. "Their girls did what they needed to do to win the meet. They earned it." Fremd finished with 291 points, and Barrington had 283.
