NORMAL -- Stevenson held Barrington to just four first-quarter points on their way to winning the IHSA girls' Class 4A state basketball title on Saturday. The Fillies managed to squeeze two productive quarters between a pair of stale ones falling 55-43 to finish second in the state.

The Patriots' Simone Sawyer led all scorers with 26 points. After making two of her three treys and going 5-for-6 from inside the arc, Sawyer drained 12 of Stevenson's 16 points in the opening eight minutes.

Ava Bardic also finished with double figures tallying 13 points for Stevenson.

Barrington's leading scorer, Sophie Swanson, finished the game with 14 points and four rebounds. Starter Molly O'Riordan, who led her team's rebounding effort with seven boards, added another 12 points.
