Ram Potential Shown At SIU


"The time puts the Rams at #2 on the state indoor list," Coach Kramer said. "It is a shame we didn't get in the fast heat. A couple of coaches of teams in the fast heat put some questionable times as their entries and caused us to get bumped back into the next-to fastest heat. But that is O.K., we ran well. We still have some work to do. With the exception of Drennian, I thought most went out a little fast. You usually want your second lap to only be about four seconds different, but we had guys at almost ten seconds. Just have to get in a little better shape."

The Ram sprint relay (4 x 200) of Devin Peterson, Tyler Hendryx, Brett Peifer, and Spencer Shadwell ran a very good opening time of 1:40.43 to win their heat. They finished in 9th place over all.

"The time puts them in 15th place on 1A state indoor list," Coach Kramer said. "I thought the guys did O.K. We really only worked about two days on handoffs and, to tell you the truth, all the guys would tell you they have come into the season in not the greatest running shape. They will get better and I am looking forward to seeing how much they improve at EIU in two weeks."

The Rams ran some young guys in some of the other races to get some experience and the 800 was one of those. Freshman Josh Bernson, Drake Manship and Jordan Sieger all got some great experience in a big meet atmosphere. In the first heat, Josh Bernson ran a 2:25.97 to finish second and over all finished 46th out of sixty-eight runners. Drake Manship was in same heat and ran a 2:36.47 to finish 63rd over all.

"Both Josh and Drake are more long distance runners, but I thought they did a great job," Kramer said. "We are trying to improve these guys' speed this spring, so they will get a few of these races in at shorter distances."
