SHELBYVILLE, IL. —
Myles Foor in just his second major race, since being injured all season with a stress fracture, ran a 16:25 for 8th place.
"Myles cut over 20 seconds from last year and his time puts him 11th on the all-time list," Coach Kramer said. "Myles is amazing. To be this good after being out for six weeks is almost unheard of. He will just keep getting better. I think since his conditioning isn't where some of the other guys are at, he struggled on the hills a little. But, he should a lot of heart getting in the top ten."
Cory Powers finished next for the Rams.
"Cory Powers ran the best race of his career by placing 10th place in a time of 16:30, which put him 12th on all-time list." Coach Kramer said. "He cut over 40 seconds from last year. Cory has struggled this year, but in the two biggest meets of the year so far, St. Joseph-Ogden Spartan Classic and now the Okaw Valley Conference Meet, he has really helped the team with great performances. We need him to get a little more consistant if we are going to reach our team goals this year. He showed today he has the talent."
Freshman Marcus Skinner was the fifth and final Ram scorer.
"Marcus continued his amazing journey as a first-time distance runner by earning all-conference with a time of 16:40," Coach Kramer said. "That time puts him at 15th for all-time list at Shelbyville. Marcus really stepped it up for us. A couple of the older guys had a bad day and he stepped right in and filled their spots. Marcus just missed being the top freshman by four seconds, so he has some work to do. But, I am confidant he will do it."
