NORTH SCIUTATE — The Barrington High School girls’ harriers defended their crown while the Hendricken Hawks copped their fifth consecutive boys’ state team title Sunday, Nov. 3, at the 2012 State Cross Country Championships, held in perfect weather conditions at Ponaganset High’s Covered Bridge Trail.

Hendricken, which has collected a total of 21 team prizes in the sport’s 66-year history, began its recent string of wins in ‘08. Hawk harriers also went five straight from 1978-82. Hendricken scored 44 points at today’s event, to 64 for runner-up LaSalle. East Greenwich finished third (93).

For unbeaten Barrington, Sunday put an exclamation point on what has been a dominant fall. The Eagles totaled 31 points to LaSalle’s 71 for second spot. Coventry came in third (150).
