Walker the runner

Scott County’s Ty Walker ran Saturday at the Foot Locker regional cross country meet.

Tyler Walker, a junior from Scott County High School, competed Saturday at the Foot Locker Regional Cross Country Championships in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Walker finished 65th out of a field of 403 runners from all over the southeastern United States.

He completed the 5-kilometer course in the championship flight with a time of 15 minutes, 59 seconds.

It was a sensational season for Walker after his sophomore track and field campaign was shortened by a stress fracture.

Walker finished third in the region meet before a top-20 effort in the KHSAA Class 3A state meet.
