SHS boys, A&M girls take Redskin

Shelbyville boys track was missing a few pieces, but they were still able to win by a nose at the Redskin Open in Sullivan on Tuesday. Shelby won the meet with 89 points, nipping Mattoon (88) and Central A&M (87). Arcola was also a close 4th (81.5) and SOV (75) was just 14-points off the pace in 5th.

Less surprising was another meet championship for the reigning state champion Lady Raiders of Central A&M. A&M (138.33) was able to out-pace host SOV (127.83) for the title. The rest of the female field was in the back 40, almost 80 points back.

Eli Miller (SH) denied Jason Pokalsey (CAM) a sweep in the sprints by taking the 200 dash by half a second (22.44 to 22.94). Pokalsey won the 100 (11.21) and the quarter (50.24).

The Rams picked up a lot of their points from the cross country boys in the distances. Neil Yockey won the 1600 (4:40.49) and Jaden Stockdale took 3rd (4:52.53). Alex Matlock won the 3200 (10:26.83). Drennian Martin was 4th in the 400 (53.02) and Tyler Hendryx (not cross country) was 7th (55.37). Cory Powers was 2nd (2:00.98) with his season-best in the 800 and Myles Foor was 3rd (2:03.34), also a season-best.

Shelby won the 4x400, again, with Martin, Foor, Hendryx, and Powers (3:33.41) a Ram season-best and 2nd best in the area this season. Shelby also won the 4x800 relay. Stockdale, Martin, Foor, and Powers ran a 8:40.12, another Ram season-best and 2nd best in the area this season.

Mikel Welton stepped up in the shot put for Shelby, throwing 45-5.5 and claiming 2nd place. Zack Ballinger gave A&M some big points by taking 2nd in the 110 hurdles (17.78) and the long jump (19-10).

On the girls side, A&M rode hurdles, distance and relays to victory even with state champ Taylor Adcock absent. Kaitlyn Corzine won the 100 hurdles (16.49) and the A&M future in hurdles, Ryan Dooley, placing 2nd (17.09). Dooley then won the 300 hurdles (49.46).
