OVC meet lives up to billing


Jaden Stockdale (15:52.11) crossed next in 8th place keeping Shelby in 1st with 17 points.

"Jaden ran one of his best times of the year in running for All-Conference honors," Coach Kramer said.

Monticello, then Tolono runners crossed. Monticello had 18 points and Tolono had 19 points.

After a Decatur St. T runner crossed, Monticello, then Tolono got their 4th men across. Monticello took the lead with 30 points and Tolono had 32 points.

Shelbyville's Kenton Wilson (16:13) crossed in 14th place giving Shelbyville 31 points and putting them in 2nd.

"Kenton ran 11 seconds off of his time earlier this year, just missing All-Conference honors, as he got out-kicked the last few yards for top twelve."

It came down to the 5th man. Monticello's 5th man crossed first in 15th place to cap their score at 45 points. Tolono's 5th man crossed next in 16th place, sprinting down the stretch, and capped their score at 48 points.

Shelby's fab freshman Tyler Pasley crossed next in 17th (16:38), capping the Ram score at 49 points.

"Tyler ran a decent race, 32 seconds faster than his time earlier this year."

Ethan Lehman of Sullivan-Okaw Valley crossed next in 18th to lead the Redskin squad (16:40).

Tolono's 6th and 7th men crossed next, showing they have the top 7 men in the conference. However, Monticello's top five was faster and gave them the OVC title.

Shelby's 6th man, Preston Henze (16:54) in 24th, beat Monticello's 6th man. But again, the first five is what counted.

"Preston Henze ran 37 seconds faster than earlier this year," Kramer said. "Preston has put together two pretty solid races. Hopefully he is done with injuries."

Freshman Hunter Plummer ran an 18:03 to finish 43rd. Erik Bowers ran a great time of 18:12 for 48th.

"Erik cut 35 seconds off of his time from our invite this year," Kramer said. "Isaak Spain cut his time of 20:17 earlier this year to a very good 18:29 cutting almost 2 minutes off for 50th place."
