SHELBYVILLE, IL. —
Cory Powers placed 6th in the 1600 (4:37.8).
"Cory ran a indoor best and looked good," Coach Kramer said. "Cory has been ill, so I think he could have done a little better, but he still ran good. He had a great indoor season as he was in the top 20 of 400, the 800 and the 1600 and part of the 4 x 800."
Drennian Martin was 7th in the 800 run (2:07.92).
"Drennian ran a personal best indoors, minutes after running in the 4 x 800, so I was very pleased to see him come back that stron," Coach Kramer said. "He still isn't 100% back in shape from early injury, but this shows progress."
Shelbyville also ran 5th in the 4x800. Drennian Martin ran a 2:04, Myles Foor a 2:03, Seth Applegate a 2:14 and Neil Yockey a 2:07.
"I was very encouraged by our race," Coach Kramer said. "We had some guys step up and cut some significant time off from last meet at Charleston. Our goal is to break school record and if that happens whatever place we will take."
Shelbyville still isn't up to full speed, but they are showing great promise for the season.
"We left some points at home with Darin Breeden and Luke Hatfield," Coach Kramer said. "Darin has not jumped this year in high jump, because of previous personal commitments and Luke just has not been able to get on a pole. Both would have gotten us some points so that is encouraging. We were only six points from winning the meet, so we have a shot at being pretty good at the end of the year if the kids are dedicated. All of the kids ran better than their performances coming in so it was a great success!"
