He's the man

Tyler Walker of Scott County stands outside the finishing area after his second win of the season at last Saturday's Louisville Classic.

The senior cross country resume stands at two wins and a personal record in three races for Scott County's Tyler Walker.

Walker raced to victory Saturday afternoon in the open boys' division of the Louisville Cross Country Classic, a massive, two-day event featuring youth and collegiate runners at Tom Sawyer State Park.

A winning time of 15:38.6 in the five-kilometer event gave Walker an 18-second margin over his closest pursuer, Chase Atkins of Hopkinsville.

After winning the Double S Stampede at Scott County Park on Sept. 19, Walker shattered his career-best while finishing second in the Bourbon County Charge a week later.
