Coach Tony Brillon is one of the best in the business.
While at Stratford, Brillon led his cross- country teams to four state titles and was named the UIL Coach of the Year in 2016.
He was also an assistant football coach, a biology teacher and took a break from his coaching career to work for the U.S. Navy Combat Information Control in radar and intercept technology.
Coach Tony Brillon also likes a project.
"I love challenges," Brillon said. "I was at Stratford for 10 years and I loved that community. When the opportunity at Northbrook arose, I decided to jump on it. It's a great school and I have no regrets."
The Memorial cross-country teams were headlined by a pair of state qualifiers – Blakely Buckingham and William Jackson.
Buckingham finished second at the district meet, 11th at the Regional Meet and 79th at state. She led her squad to a second-place finish in district and seventh-place finish in the Regional Meet.
