The road back has been a long one for Barrington shortstop Liz Sweeney, who tore her ACL midway through last season and had to watch from the sidelines as the Fillies finished fourth in the state.
“I had surgery a year ago,” Sweeney said. “I came back the first game this year ready to go.”
And what a triumphant return it has been. The senior and third-year varsity player leads the team with six home runs and 36 RBIs while boasting a .373 batting average.
“I’m so happy that she’s had such a great year after what happened last year,” senior second baseman Kelly Katis said. “She came back with the attitude that she was going to go big her senior year.”
