Rams Win OVC Championship, Molly Yockey All-Conference

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — After winning their 5th straight major invitational in a row, the Shelbyville Ram cross country team, ranked 2nd in the State, had another goal to achieve...win the conference title. On Thursday, the Rams checked off that goal, winning the Okaw Valley Conference Boys Cross Country Championship.

Shelbyville scored just 37 points and  won the meet by 27 points over 2nd place Monticello (54) and 3rd place Tolono (74). Sullivan-Okaw Valley led the remainder of teams, placing 4th with 152 points. Central A&M finished 10th (263).

On the girls side of things, Lady Ram Molly Yockey placed 11th and earned all-conference honors.

The #2 state-ranked boys continued their record setting year by winning their 7th conference championship since joining the conference in 1999. The Rams did it by putting five runners in the top twelve positions. All five earned all-conference honors.

The Rams also broke the school record team time of 1:22.13 set by the 1999 team of Lucas Kramer, Jerod Galvin, Jimmy Hood, Jason Hubbartt, and Doug Powers by running a 1:21.46. The Rams top five runners that were all conference and part of the school record team were Alex Matlock, Neil Yockey, Myles Foor, Cory Powers, and Marcus Skinner.

Matlock was 3rd overall, Yockey was 4th, Foor was 8th, Powers was 10th and Skinner was 12th.

Alex Matlock led the way for the Rams with a 3rd place finish of 16:04. That time puts him 4th on the all-time top times list for Shelbyville runners at the confernce meet.

"Alex is really running well right now," said Ram coach Kevin Kramer. "He cut well over 30 seconds from last years time and has been our top runner the last two meets. I look for him to continue to get better as we head to the post-season."

Right behind Matlock was teammate Neil Yockey in 4th place with a time of 16:07.

"Neils time puts him at 5th on the all-time list," Coach Kramer said. "Neil also cut over 30 seconds from last year and is running extremely well. He provides great leadership and is very dependable."
