Barrington volleyball gets its comeuppance

SHARE Barrington volleyball gets its comeuppance

There is a line in Orson Welles’ excellent, “The Magnificent Ambersons,” where the narrator explains that protagonist “little Georgie Amberson” finally receives his comeuppance. It should fit Barrington’s girls volleyball, which has dominated the MSL for nearly a decade and is finally losing to teams it has destroyed for so long. The loss to Schaumburg Oct. 4 sealed the MSL West title for the Saxons. It’s been a long time since Schaumburg has defeated Barrington, and even two times this season, yikes.

Barrington’s final black mark this season is that the Fillies will actually play in a feed-in — feed-in? — match to open the Lake Zurich Regional at 6 p.m. Oct. 24 against 20th-seeded Buffalo Grove. The Fillies are a 13th seed.
