Ram Potential Shown At SIU


"Tyler had enough bar clearance, but like Jordan hit the bar on way down," Kramer said. "A few minor adjustments and he will be fine."

There were a couple of young Rams in the pole vault, Sebastian Smith and Luke Foltz, but they just missed the opening height of 11' and did not place. A recent wind storm has affected the training for the Shelbyville pole vaulters.

"The weather has been terrible and, with the press box being damaged, we could not get our mats out. So, we are a little behind," Coach Kramer said. "This was only the third day we have vaulted. "It was nice just to get some work in. I am excited with these two young vaulters and their potential. We looked at some film and they know what they need to work on."

In the running events, the Rams had three entrants in the 60 meter dash. Devin Peterson led the way with a 7.63 for 32nd place. Teammate Spencer Shadwell overcame a stumble out of the blocks to finish right behind in 7.68. Senior Dylan Patch, a 1st year track athlete, ran a 7.97 to finish in 69th place.

In the 3200 meter run, senior Jaden Stockdale, who signed a letter of intent to attend Rend Lake College next fall in cross country and track, ran a 10:18.97 to win his heat and finish 7th over all in the field.

"Jaden's time puts him at #5 on the state indoor list for 1A schools," Coach Kramer said. "Jaden looked great. He had been sick and gave blood this week, so I thought he might be a little tired, but that was not the case."

Teammate freshman Tyler Pasley ran a personal best of 10:27.17 to finish 13th.

"Tyler's time puts him at #7 on state indoor list in class 1A,: Kramer said. "There are not a lot of meets where kids are able to run 3200 indoors, but even so this was a great time for Tyler. One thing we are looking for Tyler to improve is to push the pace when he gets a little tired. I have a motto. I like to say that true racing doesn't start until you are tired and I really believe that. That is the difference in really good athletes as opposed to really great athletes. Tyler has a chance to get to that next level, if he can push through the pain."
