 MOUNT WASHINGTON – In a sport dominated by girls still in middle school or close to it, Bullitt East senior Sierra Poppell carried the flag the past few seasons for older girls competing in cross-country and distance running for track.

With a 12th-place finish in the recent Girls’ Class 3-A Kentucky State Cross Country Championships, Poppell was the second senior to cross the finish line.
