"In the running events we had some good things happen, but still stubbed our foot a little in some events that would have got us the win," Coach Kramer said.
Miller's twin win in the 100 and 200 were good things.
"One baseball player who had a heck of a night was Eli Miller," Kramer said. "Eli brought home first place finishes in both the 100 and the 200 dashes and did it with ease. Eli really ran relaxed and focused, which is what I like to see in a sprinter. He has some very tough competition at sectionals in the Williamson kid from Neoga, so we will see how that goes. Hopefully, we can get another meet in, but with baseball make-up games that may not be possible."
Drennian Martin, Tyler Hendryx, Myles Foor and Cory Powers won the 4x4 with a sprint to the finish that Powers won.
"Cory Powers redeemed himself a little by running a great anchor leg to hold off Monticello and secure first place." Coach Kramer said. "We ran OK. Drennian didn't have his fastest leg ever, but was close. Myles ran a nice 52 split and baseball player Tyler Hendryx ran a personal best of 54 seconds to help us with the victory. I still say we can go under 3:30, but we are going to have to have everyone run their best on that day."
Shelby also won the 4x8 relay with Jaden Stockdale, Kenton Wilson, Marcus Skinner and Foor (8:38.14). Hatfield went 13-0 in the pole vault in a battle for 1st.
"Really happy for this group," Coach Kramer said. "Other than Myles, this is our "B" team and that just shows you how good our distance crew is. To have three guys out and others step in is amazing. All four ran solid, but Kenton Wilson really stepped up and got us the lead in the second position with a 2:07 split which is his best time ever."
