BARDSTOWN - The Boyle County boys won the Nelson County Hillbilly Run Saturday, placing two runners in the top five to defeat Nelson County and Pleasure Ridge Park by 13 points.
Sam Morgan finished third and John Anderson was fifth for Boyle, which scored 88 points.
Kelly Jameson earned a second-place finish for the Boyle County girls, who were third out of four teams.

"I was really glad for our boys team. They have been working hard all season, and today it paid off," Boyle coach Joni Morgan said. "It takes five to score in cross country, and Jonathan Crowe, Blake Hendricks and Herbie Lynn were who we were counting on to have good runs."
