TELL CITY—Cooper, ranked in the top 10 in the largest class in Kentucky, drove 2 1/2 hours hoping to get some strong competition in the Lincoln Trail Invitational boys cross country race Saturday.
But it may have gotten more than it bargained for, as Tell City beat the Kentucky team 40-74 for first place in the 11-team meet.
Perry Central finished eighth with 206 points and Cannelton 11th with 347.
Tell City placed six runners in the top 16 in the 131-man race.
