Lady Wildcats Bring Home 16th Place at State XC Meet

It was a good news-bad news scenario for Trigg County’s girls’ cross country team Saturday at the Class 2A State Meet at the Kentucky Horse Park.

Eighth grader Riley Brame became the seventh different Lady Wildcat to lead the team across the finish in a meet this season. She brought home a career-best time of 21:57 on the rolling 3.1-mile course to finish 64th in a field that included 234 runners.

DeDe Barbee followed Brame across the line in 84th place with a time of 22:23. Seventh grader Reese Bush (22:37) was 95th, and Kylie Alford (23:15) was 124th.

Seniors Grace Hill (22:51) was 107th and Livi Ricks (23:51) was 139th.

Unfortunately, Lady Wildcat freshman Trinity Cavanaugh, who finished fifth at the region meet last year, suffered an asthma attack during the first mile of the race and did not finish. Race rules do not allow runners to race with an inhaler.

Addi Dewey of the Christian Academy-Louisville won the race in a time of 19:13.

Trigg County finished 16th as a team with 418 points. Scott High School won the team title with 74 points.
