Solid Shelby State Prelims

Area Sends 21 To Finals

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

High schools from over the state of Illinois made their way down for the first day of the girls state track meet at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.

Defending class 1A champion Central A&M sent 12 total athletes to the meet this season, and started this years’ girls track meet off well by winning 6 events individually and 1 team race.

Senior Genny Stringer finished first in the discus throw (133-07), and senior Sarah Bailey won her heat in the triple jump (33-08.00) as well.

Seniors Kaitlyn Corzine (15.88) and Taylor Adcock (15.77) both won their heats in the 100-meter high hurdles. Adcock had a photo finish against Cydney Long of Oregan. Adcock edged her despite clocking the same time. 

This is Corzine’s second straight season with a first place finish. Corzine finished in second place in the 300-meter low hurdles (45.72).

Adcock also finished first in the 100-meter dash (12.77) which was an improvement from last seasons’ fourth place finish on the first day of the meet. She was challenged by Jenny Bullock (Windsor). Bullock pulled even and would not fade. It was a dead heat and the judges had to go to the clock to determine the winner. First, it looked like Bullock won by a hundredth of a second. Finally, Adcock was announced the winner.   

Adcock also finished first in the 300-meter low hurdles (45.54) for the second straight season.

CAM finished in fifth place in the 4x800-meter relay (10:07.28) with Cole, sophomore Paige Seitz, Junior Kylee Burcham, and freshman Salena Sloan. A&M improved on last seasons’ eighth place finish on the first day. CAM also won the 4x400-meter relay (4:04.26) with Corzine, Bailey, Adcock, and Cole for the second straight season.

Junior Mikaela Cole finished in 5th place in the pole vault (9-00.00). Her finish this season was an improvement from last seasons’ 9th place finish on the first day of the meet. Fellow teammate, freshman Mikah Maples, finished in third place in the discus throw (120-03).
