Jordan Sieger won his heat in a time of 2:13.22 to finish in 22nd overall.
" It was a personal best for Jordan," Kramer said. "Jordan had the second fastest time of any freshman in the field."
In the 400, the Rams had three runners entered, but only two competed. Drennian Martin led the way with an 8th place finish in a time of 53.70. Devin Miner on just a weeks practice ran a 1:01.79 to finish in 55th place.
"We put Drennian in the 400 for Seth Durbin, who was back home for life-guard training," Coach Kramer said. "Drennian was supposed to run the 1600, but decided to go to dinner theater instead, so we stuck him in the 400 to get another race. He ran well, but I would have loved for him to stay and see what he could have run in 1600. Devin just needs some more time. Like some of the other guys coming in out of shape, Devin will get better."
Three freshman got valuable experience in the 200 meter dash against top level competition on Saturday. Grant Sims led the way as he ran a 25.47 to finish in 30th place out of 75 runners. Fellow freshman Keaton Plummer was right behind in a time of 25.69 to finish in 37th. His brother, Hunter Plummer, ran a 26.41 to finish in 52nd.
"I thought all three freshman ran well for their first high school indoor meet," Kramer said. "The 200 is tougher to run indoors with the tight curves. But, I think they did fine. I really think all three have a chance to contribute to varsity this year. Especially on some relay teams."
The Rams had a heat winner in the 1600, as junior Kenton Wilson ran close to a personal record (4:47.91). Teammate Marcus Skinner finished right behind in 16th place with a time of 4:48.05.
"Kenton's time put him 14th overall and puts him at #15 on state indoor list," Coach Kramer said. "Marcus' time puts him at #17 on state indoor list. I thought Kenton looked great. He ran negative splits for the race, which I love to see, and he beat a rival from Monticello. In Marcus' race, I thought he looked a little weak. I know he has a little cold and he ran a personal best in the 4x8, so that might have been a factor."
