Barrington wrestlers earn fire truck ride through community to celebrate their finish.
Ken Hoving is very proud of Barrington’s third trip in three years to the state meet but that wasn’t what really impressed him about last weekend’s fourth place finish. “We were without some key guys,” he said of losing two key wrestlers Ryan Wilt and Jared Parvinmehr to injuries during sectionals and the individual state meet respectively. “We did a great job of coming together (as a team) considering (the missing wrestlers).” “We had a goal of making a run at the state title but missing certain guys makes you change your mentality a little,” Hoving went on to say of why the tournament’s outcome could have been different, implying that he felt with a full team they could have been holding the first place trophy. It was a very busy week …

Six different Barrington wrestlers finish in the top three at sectionals and advance to state.
Familiarity is a good thing in wrestling. Knowing the opponents tendencies sometimes can give a seasoned wrestler that needed advantage over a tough competitor. “Eddie (Scanlon) is a tough opponent, I think we have wrestled five or six times the last couple of years,” Cameron Thomson (37-2) said after his last-second decision over the Wheeling senior that decided third place for the 170-pound division in the Barrington Sectionals. “He got me a couple of weeks ago; I knew I would have to keep pushing the pace, keep pressure and work my offense and it just paid off.” Thomson, who won 10-8, wasn’t the only Bronco to find success at sectionals and punch his ticket to downstate as six Broncos finished in the top three. Now all will be heading …

After winning the Moore-Prettyman, Broncos stay hot with 68-0 victory over the Pirates.
Following up his disappointing finish at the Moore-Prettyman with a tough loss at Prospect, senior wrestler Daniel Davidson was a bit relieved when he secured a pin in the final seconds of his first round match with Palatine on Friday, Dec. 2. “It’s good to finally get that monkey off my back,” Davidson said following Barrington’s 68-0 convincing win over Mid-Suburban West foe Palatine. Davidson, who was not much of a factor in Barrington’s wins this season (first place finish at the Moore/Prettyman and then a win over Prospect) secured a first period pin with just eight seconds remaining in the first period. Davidson’s fall gave Barrington an early 23-0 lead and was just one of four pins for the Broncos, three of which happened in the …
