Palatine finished second with 137.5 points, just ahead of defending champion Prospect (136).
"I told the girls we had an opportunity, and they made the most of it," said Barrington coach Jody Gitelis. "The girls stepped up and did the job."
Sophomore Anne Cosio, freshman Kelsey Mclaurin, senior Stephanie Bergen and sophomore Sara-Kate Capel combined to lead the Fillies' 1,600 relay.
Capel was able to hold off Palatine sophomore Kelly O'Brien in the final lap.
"We knew what was on the line," said Capel. "But our coaches did a great job of putting us in position to win."
Barrington won the 400 relay (49.25) and 800 relay (1:45.62) and had a number of individuals fill the gaps -- including freshman Addi Coy, who took first in the 400 (58.86) and second in the 200. Coy also anchored the 400 relay.
"It feels amazing," said Coy of the conference title. "It still hasn't hit me yet. I knew we were capable, but to actually get it done is great."
