Barrington claims 3A soccer crown by topping New Trier in PKs – Chicago Tribune

As the Barrington girls soccer team lifted the Class 3A state-championship trophy after defeating New Trier in penalty kicks Saturday night, Fillies head coach Ryan Stengren paid tribute to the team’s 10 seniors.

“I just had a good feeling tonight. I have 10 seniors and I trust them, and it worked out,” said Stengren, whose team captured the first title in program history by prevailing 3-0 in a shootout after the game was scoreless through regulation and overtime.

“The word I use to describe (the seniors) is that this is the most focused group, and a team that has been dedicated to their goals from Day 1,” Stengren added. “I have a list of things they gave up to do this.”

Last week, the Barrington seniors skipped the school’s senior boat cruise, an event that ends at 3 a.m., and instead chose to have a quiet meal and see a movie as a team.
