FRANKFORT - Abby Piper of Boyle County won the girls varsity race at the Capitol View Classic, passing her chief competitor about halfway through the race and keeping her at bay.
Kelly Jameson and Kelsey Barbato of Boyle finished sixth and ninth, respectively, to help the Lady Rebels to a second-place team finish. They scored 37 points, just three more than first-place North Hardin.
Piper won with a time of 21 minutes, 11 seconds after passing Lisa Unger of Frankfort near the midpoint of the extremely unlevel course.
"I passed her with a lot of conviction," Piper said. "From there I knew I had to dig deep and keep on running.
