Barrington High coach Scott Turgeon figured his 4x800-meter relay team had a good chance at winning a New England title. What he didn’t expect, at least not yet, was the leg turned in by his anchor, junior Abby Livingston.Trailing fellow Rhode Island rival La Salle Academy by three seconds after the third leg, Livingston blitzed her two laps in 2 minutes, 8 seconds to lift the Eagles to the overall crown at Saturday’s New England Championship.
