Shelby Athletes At Murray

Two Shelby Area college freshman ran their way to Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky.

Neil Yockey of Shelbyville and Taylor Adcock of Moweaqua are competing in Division I men's cross country and women's track. The Blue Racers are in the Ohio Valley Conference, along with the Shelby Area's Eastern Illinois University.

Yockey ran cross country for four years at Shelbyville High School. The Rams won the conference in 2012 and finished 3rd in the state. Yockey was named All Okaw Valley Conference twice (2010, 2012). Yockey also played football, basketball, and baseball, receiving four varsity letters in baseball. His senior year Yockey was part of the State Sweet 16 Sectional Finalist Ram baseball team.

Yockey started running at Murray in the fall of 2013 in cross country. Yockey ran in all seven Murray meets. He set a personal-best in the 8K at the Bradley Invitational, finishing in 27:24. Yockey placed 66th at the OVC Championship meet.

Adcock was the back-to-back IHSA Class A State Champion in the 300 meter hurdles in 2012 and 2013. Adcock helped lead Central A&M High School to back-to-back state team championship in 2012 and 2013. She ran in the state championship 4x400 meter relay and was named All-State in the 100 meter hurdles and 100 meter dash in 2013. Adcock was named All-State in the 4x400 and 4x100 meter relays in 2012. Adcock played on the Central A&M basketball team, which boasted an 18-game win streak.

In her first year at Murray, Adcock ran in four indoor and four outdoor events. Adcock ran the 400m leg as a part of the school record setting distance medley relay team at the indoor OVC Championships. They placed 2nd (12:07.03). Adcock was also a part of both the indoor and out OVC 4x400m relay team and 4x100m relay at the Outdoor OVC Championships.

Adcock competed as an individual at the Outdoor OVC Champions in the 400m hurdles and finished 9th. She ran a season best 1:03.03 in the 400m hurdles at the Eastern Illinois University Last Chance Twilight meet. Despite being a freshman, her time was the 10th fastest time in school history. Her time of 1:38.78 in the indoor 600m run was also good for 10th place all time at MSU.
