Distance relay, sprint lead Rams at EIU


400 meter Dash: 54.05, 5th out of 29, Cory Powers

"Cory now has a top twelve time in three events at the state level," Kramer said. "The 400, 800 and 1600. Cory has worked extremely hard this year and his hard work is being rewarded. This was a personal best for Cory indoors or outdoors."

800 meter Run: 2:08.82, 5th out of 56, Drennian Martin. 2:15.93, 16th out of 56, Neil Yockey.

"Drennian and Neil are both coming off of injuries this winter so they are a little behind in their training," Kramer said. "But I thought they looked strong as this was their second races of the day following their win in 4 x 8."

1600 meter Run: 4:46.99, 10th out of 54, Alex Matlock. 4:52.32, 13th out of 54, Myles Foor.

"Alex cut about six seconds off of his time from a month ago so it was good to see his improvement," Coach Kramer said. "Myles is also coming off of an injury but I thought he came back strong after he ran in the winning 4 x 800. I look for Myles to drop the most time from now til end of season because he is behind a little in his training."

4 x 400 Relay: 4:02.45, 14th out of 23, Team members Jaden Stockdale, Kenton Wilson, Seth Applegate, and Devin Miner.

"We just kind of threw this relay together to get all the guys a race," Kramer said. "They really are part of our distance crew but I thought they did a good job. We were trying to get under 4:00 but just missed."

Long Jump: 18'-5 3/4", 15th out of 25, Jake Keown.

"This was Jake's first actual day of participating in track this season," Kramer said. "I thought he did ok. His steps were fairly consistant. He will get better with more practice. We need him to get back in the 20 foot range like we know he can do to get us some points. It will happen with more practice."
