Abby Ruess (Bianchi/Grand Performance) won the Women's State Points Race Championship on a rain-shortened evening last Thursday. After multiple rain-delays, the women took to the rail for the start of the 30-lap event. With sprints every 10 laps, each sprint would be crucial in setting the standard. Ruess and Meg Browning (UMCT) traded wins in the first two sprints. Browning edged Ruess in the first sprint, coming over the top at the finish line. Ruess exacted her revenge with 10 to go, holding off a charging Browning. With the score leveled, the final sprint would prove decisive. Karin Friberg (UMCT) attacked with 3 to go, gaining a 200 meter advantage within 2 laps - putting Ruess and Browning's lead in jeopardy.
