Distance relay, sprint lead Rams at EIU

The Charleston Invite was an early testing ground for the Shelbyville Ram boys track team on Saturday. They placed 7th in 30-team Class A Meet and they didn't take the whole team.

The Ram 4x8 relay team placed 1st. Eli Miller ran second in the 55 meter dash. Cory Powers placed 5th in the 400 and Drennian Martin was 5th in the 800 to lead the team.

"We did not take everyone but had a decent contingent of athletes," said Ram coach Kevin Kramer. "I feel we probably could have been in the top three if we would have had everyone ready to go. But that will give us some goals for the post-season."

Shelbyville Results:

4 x 200: 1:43.94, 20th out of 26, Team members Kurtis Cameron, Chase Jackson, Jordan Brown, and Tyler Hendryx.

"This is a tough relay to run indoors," Coach Kramer said. "We just wanted to give everyone a chance to run today so we put this team together. I thought they did ok. Handoffs were a little shaky but they always are indoors. They will do much better outdoors."

4 x 800: 8:26.10, 1st out of 24, Team members Myles Foor, Neil Yockey, Drennian Martin, and Cory Powers.

"This was our top finish," Kramer said. "This team has a chance to finish in top three at state in May. Champaign St. Thomas More will be tough to beat but we want to break school record of 8:01 and if we do that we will be happy with where ever we finish. Splits were Myles 2:07, Neil 2:06, Drennian 2:06, and Cory 2:05."

55 meter Dash: 6.43, 2nd out of 51, Eli Miller

"Eli is in just his second year of track and has already shown improvement," Kramer said. "Eli dual sports in baseball so we practice in P.E. He has worked hard on the track and weight room and it has shown. Eli is definitely one of the top ten sprinters in class 1A in my opinion."
