Girls Athlete of the Week // Becky Yep, Mount Hebron, cross country

The senior ended a fine career by capturing the Class 3A state championship Nov. 14 at Hereford High, finishing with a time of 20 minutes, 25 seconds to win by 15 seconds over Clarksburg freshman Abigail Daley. Yep, who captured the Howard County championship and also dominated the 3A East regional race, earned first-team All-Metro honors last year after taking second place at the state meet. In addition to cross country, Yep, who is still undecided on a college, is a standout performer in outdoor track for the Vikings, taking fourth at states in the 3,200 meters and seventh in the 1,600. Earlier in her high school career, Yep overcame stress fractures in both tibias.
