Shelby shines at Area Best

Shelby Area athletes shined at the Decatur Area Best on Tuesday, even with some key leaders opting out, as they get ready for State.

Shelbyville claimed four 1st places, three 2nd places, and one 3rd in the boy and girl meets. Neoga claimed four 1st places, one 2nd, and two 3rds. Central A&M didn’t run their best in every event, but still won one event, had two 2nds, and one 3rd. Windsor had a 1st and a 2nd, SOV a 1st and a 3rd and Stew-Stras had three 2nds.

Eli Miller of Shelbyville and Corey Kersey of Neoga had two 1st place finishes, each. Miller won the 100 (10.76) and the 200 (21.90). Kersey won the long jump (22-0.5) and the triple jump (45-11.5). Darin Breeden of Shelbyville won his third straight high jump in big meets, clearing a season-high (6-4). Derek Williamson ran the 400 and won it (49.99), nipping Jason Pokalsey of A&M (51.94). But Williamson (22.32) was edged by Miller in the 200.

In the girls meet, Molly Yockey (Shelby) won the 3200 run (12:58.2). Jenny Bullock of Windsor nipped Taylor Adcock (CAM) in the 100 dash, 12.51 to 12.72. Emily Neuhauser of SOV was 6th (13.17), but bounced back to win the 200 dash (25.30).

Genny Rose Stringer won the discus with one of her best throws of the season (137-10), while Courtney Croy (ENO) won the long jump (17-3), edging her teammate Olivia Ott (17-2). CHBC’s Ava Paruleski was runner-up in both the high jump with her best jump of the season (5-4) and the triple jump (36-0.75).

Three Shelby teammates were runner-ups. Morgan Powers was 2nd in the girls 800 (2:25.84), and Luke Hatfield was runner-up in the pole vault with a new season-high (14-0). The Ram 4x4 was also 2nd (3:36.88).

Drennian Martin was 2nd in the 800 (2:01.73) to lead a host of Shelbyville distance runners in the 800. The Rams took five of the top eight times in the 800. After Martin, Neil Yockey was 3rd (2:02.29), Alex Matlock was 5th (2:08.28), Preston Henze was 7th (2:13.64) and Kenton Wilson 8th (2:14.21), all from Shelbyville.
