---- — Outstanding performances on Saturday earned three Shelbyville athletes honors: Madsion Boone and Brandy Smith of the Lady Ram volleyball team and Morgan Powers of Lady Rams cross country.

Boone and Smith led the Shelbyville Lady Rams to the title game of the Shelby Invite on Saturday, before losing to Edwards County. They were both named to the all-tourney team.

Boone swung for a team-high 35 kills and rose up for a team-leading 15 blocks for a total of 50 net points in the five tourney matches.

Smith was equally productive on offense, swinging for 31 kills. She added four blocks for 35 net points. Smith also had a team-high 30 digs and led Shelby with six service aces.

Meanwhile, at the Shelby Trail Invite at Forest Park, Powers was finishing among the leaders in the varsity girls race. Powers finished 3rd behind her older teammate and a 3-time state champ. Powers ran a 19:28 just three seconds behind 2nd place. Powers, a sophomore, cut over 2:00 off her time from last year.
