Drama down the stretch for state runner-up Barrington
May 23, 2015 10:53 PM -
Barrington has finished strong all season, so it was no surprise when the Fillies let loose their lethal attack once again, this time in the final stages of the Class 3A girls track state finals at O'Brien Stadium on the campus of Eastern Illinois University. And the Fillies certainly saved their best for last. With a state trophy on the line, Barrington earned state medals in four of the last six events, capping its day with a come-from-behind victory in the 1,600 relay to earn the program's third state trophy Saturday. Barrington tied Warren for second place with 35 points. Lincoln-Way East captured its third consecutive Class 3A state title with 51 points, joining East St. Louis, Evanston, and Morgan Park as the only large schools to win three straight titles.
