The Barrington High School girls track team powered to a second place finish at the state championship meet in Providence on Saturday.

Julia Howarth celebrated a strong meet — the senior runner won the 600-meter race with a time of 1:39.55 and then ran a leg in the Eagles' school record-setting, state championship-winning 4x400-meter relay event. Other members of the championship relay team are Tess Gagliano, Violet Gagliano and Jordynn Palethorpe. The Eagles runners clocked a 4:06.71 — about seven seconds faster than the second place team. The same quartet for BHS finished second in the 4x200-meter relay race. 

Stephanie Chun ran a personal best time of 10:40.74 and finished second in the 3,000-meter race, while her teammate, Caroline Livingston finished third in the 1,500-meter race and fourth in the 1,000. Meg Zitzmann finished fifth in the 1,000, and joined Sarah Hennessey, Margaret Nozaki and Lindsay Turgeon, finishing third in the 4x800-meter relay race. 

Other top six scorers for Barrington were Jordynn Palethorpe, fifth in the 300, Tess Gagliano, fifth in the 600, Audrey Gravelle, sixth in the 55 high hurdles, and Madison McGloin, third in the weight throw and fifth in the shot put. 

The top six finishers qualified for the New England Championships which will be held at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston on Saturday, Feb. 29.
