On Sunday, Jan. 16, the Eagles defeated Central High School 65-58. Raffa led all scorers with 31 points. Coutu finished with 13 and Nick Scandura scored nine. 

The win over Central followed a 55-51 loss to Smithfield on Friday, Jan. 14, and a 66-46 loss to Mt. Pleasant on Monday, Jan. 10. In both losses, Barrington was missing key players. 

Against Smithfield, Raffa scored 14 points and Coutu dropped in 13, while Scandura and Quinn Murphy each finished with six.

Barrington High School’s 4x800-meter relay team of Andrew Rego, Charlie Stockwell, Brandon Piedade and Holden Vaughan, ran to victory at the East Coast Invitational at the PCTA on Jan. 15. The Barrington quartet finished with a time of 8:38.46. Asher Robbins captured second plan in the championship weight division, recording a distance of 72 feet, 5.75 inches. Ethan Knight ran to a fifth place finish in the 55-meter hurdles.

Barrington also split in its final dual meet of the regular season, defeating Classical 55-54, and losing to LaSalle 58-51. 

“Great to beat our perennial rivals from Classical by one point, and I have to say it is pretty impressive to be this close to LaSalle Academy in the scoring, despite that loss,” said Coach Bill Barrass.

Nate Greenberg clocked the fastest time in the 55-meter dash with a personal best 6.82 seconds. Robbins was tops in the weight throw, and Andrew Blazewicz won the high jump. 

The division championship meet is set for Jan. 26, and the class championship is Feb. 5.
