IN the 40-49 Sherry Scott still leads over Becky Nesbitt with Shannon Warning, Kay Scott and Amy Kelly nipping at their heels from the Jackalope Jam points. Becky Howlett, Dawn Burris and Martha Hilton are the top 3 for the 50-59 women and close enough where it is anybodies ball game in the last 2 races. Anesha Golden and Nancy Holcomb are our 1-2 combo for the 60-69. Thelma Richardson boots her solo route after Jackalope Jam to the top spot in the cup championship.
With 2 races left most of the age groups and the overall leads can all change. With franklin mountains being a 50k 13.1, 10k and 5k Brazos Bend having 100 miler, 50 miler, 26.2 and 13.1 races even the tenth of a point can mean everything.
