OVC meet lives up to billing


Josh Bernson ran a 19:05.

"Josh cut 36 seconds off of his time from earlier for 61st place," Kramer said. "Drake Manship ran a 19:39 for 72nd place. Drake cut 20 seconds off of his invitational time. Seth Durbin broke 20:00 as he ran a 19:46 for 75th. Seth cut 20 seconds off of his time from earlier this year. Nick Shaw had a little bit of injury trouble and finished with a 23:30 for 97th."

On the girls side, St. Teresa's Rachel Devereux blitzed the field by 28 seconds, crossing in 17:36.4. Her teammate Lauren Evelti was next. Monticello's Hannah Houska broke into the St. T pack in 3rd.

St. T's Audrey Vandercar was 4th. Monticello had another runner, then the 4th and 5th St. T runners crossed capping their score at 20 points and giving them the OVC girls title. s

Shelby's best, Molly Yockey in 11th place (19:04.85) followed Monty's 3rd girl.

"Molly earned all-conference honors," Coach Kramer said. "She was 21 seconds faster than she ran at our invite this year. Molly is running well right now. She needs to continue to improve if she wants to make it to state. Our sectional is tough this year."

Central A&M's #1, sophomore Salena Sloan fiinished 14th (19:22.5). Morgan Powers, Shelby's next girl, finished in 19th place (19:30.47).

"Morgan's time was two seconds slower than what she ran at our invite earlier this year," Kramer said. "Morgan did not have a great race, but not a bad one either. She can do better and I think she will at regionals."

Jorgi Sparrgrove, A&M's 2nd, was 23rd (team 19th) in 20:35.43. SOV's #1, Ashlyn Risley was 25th (team 20th) in 20:41.51.

Shelby freshman Maggy Yockey came into the chute in 28th (20:58.02).

"It was Maggy's first run on our course this year, Kramer said. "I thought Maggy ran fine. We really have been focusing with her to get under 7:00 pace and she is doing it."
