In the mid-1970s, a newly recognized girls' sport was coming of age in Kentucky. So was a new star in Owen County.
Karen Porter began running in 1974 as a seventh-grader. That same year, the KHSAA recognized the mile run as an official sport for girls. It did not take long for Porter to make a name for herself, as she was the Class A State runner-up that season. It was the beginning of an outstanding career in both track and cross county for Porter.
Between 1974 and 1979, Porter was the winner of 16 major invitational races.
