Harrington, Bolman Leave with Medals

Bittersweet was the operative word as the finals of the boys state swimming and diving meet concluded Saturday at New Trier.

That primarily applied to all of the seniors. Included were Grayslake North's Brenden Bolman and Libertyville's Matt Harrington, both of whom are four-time state qualifiers who have plenty of swimming ahead of them.

Bolman is heading to Missouri State in the fall, while Harrington is taking his talents to Princeton.

Harrington placed fourth in the 200-yard freestyle (1:39.73) and followed up by taking third in the 100 butterfly (49.44). Last season, Harrington finished second in the butterfly in helping Libertyville finish as the state runner-up.

"Matt has definitely given it his all, and this meet is just a small step in his career," Libertyville first-year coach Mike Cunningham said.

Cunningham lost a challenge to his team, as all four events that the Wildcats were in ended up making it to the finals. As a result, the coach had his goatee dyed orange. Harrington's mother, Karen, a hair stylist, happily did the honors.

Harrington also swam on the 200 freestyle relay with Justin Fu, Noah Jamison and Eric Turner. The team made it to the consolation finals, as did the 400 relay team of Nick Harrington, Jamison, Turner and Fu. …
