Rams Win OVC Championship, Molly Yockey All-Conference

(Continued)

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Seth Applegate was next in for the Rams, as he was their 8th runner in a time of 17:00.

"Seth ran a little slower today than last year," Coach Kramer said. "He has consistently been in the top five or six, so this was unusual for him. I expect him back up their next week at regionals."

There were two othre Lady Ram varsity runners, Morgan Powers and Sarah Martin. Morgan Powers ran a 21:42 for 38th place. . Freshman teammate Sarah Martin ran a 25:35 for 66th place.

"Morgan went out a little fast today," Coach Kramer said. "She still really has not gotten the concept of pace yet. But, she finished in the top half of the field and in this conference that is quite the accomplishment. Sarah has some ability, but she just has to put more time into it. A good off-season will really make her improve."

The compliment of Ram boys also showed well, especially Kenton Wilson and Preston Henze.

"Wilson was the Rams 9th runner, but finished in an amazing 22nd in the 99 runner field," Coach Kramer said. "Kenton cut over 50 seconds from last year in running a 17:19. I can't say enough about how well Kenton is running right now. He has worked extremely hard over the last three to four weeks and put himself in position for a varsity spot. On any other team he would be top seven. In fact, he beat every other teams fifth runner today and a lot of third and fourth runners. I think the sky is the limit for him, if he keeps working this hard and with his attitude. I am very proud of him."

The Rams 10th runner was freshman Preston Henze who was 35th in a time of 18:08.

"In my opinion this was Preston's best race," Coach Kramer said. "This course is tough and a little long, so for him to almost break 18:00 on this course is amazing. He has really improved thoughout the season and you are going to see some big things from him next year. Preston beat every other teams 7th runners and a lot of their 5th and 6th. He would be top seven on virtually any other team."
