Barrington moves to 3-1 in MSL West
Barrington's girls basketball team stayed within striking distance of Fremd in the Mid-Suburban West with a 47-37 win over visiting Palatine Friday night.
Freshman Sydney Grandy scored 14 points to lead the Fillies followed by teammates Anna Mae King (12 points) and Shanna Turczynski (10).
Barrington (4-9, 3-1) is one game behind Fremd (15-0, 4-0) in the West.
"Syd Granby had a fabulous game in the post and Shanna really took care of business from the free throw line (7-of-10)," Barrington coach Babbi Barreiro said. "Anna Mae had some big buckets for us down the stretch and Taylor (Thompson) was dominant on the boards in the second half as well."
Barreiro said there were contributions from a lot of different players.
"That was great to see," she said. "We went in at halftime and talked about playing as a team and doing a better job of doing whatever the team needs. We also talked about giving up too many points to Palatine. I thought we did a much better job of executing those things in the second half."
Freshman Madi Stark led Palatine (1-10, 0-4) with 13 points while senior Amanda Stanczuk added 8 and junior Melanie Simon 7.

Rachel Kandefer led Elk Grove (3-8, 1-3) with 17 points while Megan Murray and Isabella Tierney each chipped in 8.
Rolling Meadows 49, Mundelein 29: Rolling Meadows (12-3) got under way in pool play at the Libertyville tournament as Lily Greifenstein reached double figures for the 10th time this season.
