Jaden Stockdale will be attending Rend Lake College on a scholarship next fall. He will be running on the cross-country and track and field teams for Coach Jame Woolridge.
“I am very proud of what Jaden has been able to accomplish at Shelbyville High School,” said SHS coach Kevin Kramer. “He ran track for four years and cross country for three years. From the very beginning when Jaden was running 21:00 for three miles you could see the fire inside of him and the passion he had for running.
“He is one of the most dedicated athletes that I have ever coached and could always be counted on giving me his very best every race,” Kramer continued. “He also is a great leader and will do whatever it takes for his team to be successful. Besides being a great runner he is an even better person. I wish I could coach him forever. He deserves every success he achieves.”
Jaden currently has bests of 10:13 in the 3200, 15:28 for three miles and ended up 34th on the all time list of Shelbyville runners at the state course with a time of 16:15.
