Ellie Barrows

ECC freshman Ellie Barrows leads the team in scoring (13.4 ppg) and has already hit 35 three-pointers. She set a new school record in threes in a single game with nine.

The current generation of high school students have grown up with active shooter drills and lockdowns as the norm. They weren’t alive for the moment in U.S. history that changed so many lives forever – the Columbine High School massacre.

Ellie Barrows was born two years after the incident happened – but she isn’t so far removed from that day. Twenty years after two high school seniors fatally shot 13 people and then took their own lives - Barrows graduated from the Littleton, Colo. high school.
