Record Short Field, Short Time

(Continued)

Bill Brown of Sullivan broke the Shelbyville pattern, coming in 4th (17:26), just a second behind Martin and with the same time as Marcus Skinner, an underclassman for the Shelbyville Rams (age 15) who was 5th overall. Nic Wright of Taylorville (17) was the 6th finisher (17:33).

Kenton Wilson, a current SHS distance runner crossed in 7th place, giving SHS or former SHS runners 5 of the first 7 places. Tye Sutherland of Toledo (17) was 8th (17:43) and Lawrence Curtin of Stonington (14) was 9th (17:54)

Michael Giberson, former Sillivan (20) Redskin runner and assistant coach, rounded out the Top 10 overall finishers (17:59), all under 18:00.

Five more SHS runners or former runners finished in the Top 20.

Alex Matlock (18) also part of the 3rd place state cross country team at SHS last year, was 12th (18:07), teammates Jaden Stockdale (17) and Seth Applegate (18) were 13th (18:08) and 14th (18:13), respectively. Another former SHS star Stanely Donahoo (24) was 16th (18:29). Tyler Pasley, a state middle school runner who is entering SHS this year, was 19th (18:42).

Jonathan Yockey of Champaign (17) a cousin/nephew to the Shelbyville running Yockeys rounded out the Top 20 (18:59).

The #1 team finisher had four of the Top 15 runners. A Shelbyville team with Drennian Martin (3rd), Marcus Skinner (5th), Kent Wilson (7th), Jaden Stockdale (13th) and Preston Henze (26th) beat the second best team by 1:47.

The 2nd place team was made up of Taylorville area runners: Nic Wright (6th), Lawrence Curtin (9th), Luke Molen (15th), Tommy O’Brien (18th), Noah Likes (25th) in 1:31.44.
