Ram Potential Shown At SIU

(Continued)

Junior Drew Snider, who is back out for track this year, as he ran a season best time of 11:18.45 to finish 23rd.

"Drew continues to shine," said Coach Kramer. "I just love that Drew is back out running again. He looks like he is having fun. I really think he can improve this year and help us now and in the future in cross-country and track."

The Rams showcased their hurdle squad for the first time this season. Senior Luke McConnell, who was a state qualifier last year, ran a 9.41 to finish in 15th place.

"Luke's time puts him at #11 on state 1A indoor list," Coach Kramer said. "Luke is another dual sport athlete that we are struggling to find some practice time. but he is doing his best to get it done. I can see improvement in him from where he was last year at this time."

Cole Banning ran a 11.27 and freshman Luke Foltz finished just ahead of Cole in 11.26.

"Cole and Luke made their debut in the hurdles," Kramer said. "Although they struggled a little bit, the potential is there. Cole hit the hurdle in his lane and caused him to get out of rhythm, which affected his time. If Cole can get his trail leg better, he can be a very good hurdler. Luke has better form than Cole, but cannot 3-step in between the hurdles, which hurts him. Once he gets that down, the sky is the limit. I like that we have some depth in this event, which we have not had for quite some time."

The Ram 4 x 800 team won their heat and finished 3rd overall in a season best time of 8:30.43. The Rams were led by senior Drennian Martin, who had split of 2:02.7. Kenton Wilson ran a 2:08.5, Marcus Skinner a 2:10.8 and Preston Henze a 2:09.3.
