Palatine's Kelly O'Brien is used to the spotlight, and the Pirates junior was definitely shining brightly in her own right Saturday at the Mark Saylor Mid-Suburban League girls track and field indoor meet. O'Brien earned two state medals last season, including taking second in the 1,600. She continued to impress in the fall by finishing third at the Class 3A cross country state meet. O'Brien kept things rolling on Saturday, taking first in the 800-meter run (2:17.42) and 1,600 (5:05.91) in powering the Pirates to the title with 117.5 points at North Central College in Naperville.
