SHELBYVILLE, IL. —
Junior Drennian Martin stepped up and was the second Ram in the chute.
“Drennian ran the best race of his career,” Coach Kramer said. “He ran a 15:53 for 51st place and that time puts him at 17th on the all time top time list for Shelbyville runners. I thought, of all the guys, Drennian paced himself the best. He was able to pick off runners throughout the race.”
Senior Neil Yockey ran another race under 16:00, as he ran a 15:56 for 58th place.
“Neil’s time put him in 18th place on the all time top time list for Shelbyville runners,” Kramer said. “With that time, Neil also became the fastest Yockey in the long line of great Yockey runners over the years. Neil beat his dad’s time of 16:06 and his uncle Jerry’s time of 16:13. Neil was as steady as always. He was hurting the whole way, but never gave up on himself or his team. Neil has never really had a bad race and his performances always can be counted on.”
Senior Myles Foor flirted with the 16:00 minute mark, as he ran a very good 16:07 to place 69th and fourth for the Rams.
“Myles time puts him at 30th place on Shelbyville’s all time list of top times,” Kramer said. “What Myles has been able to do is just incredible. Myles was our best runner right before the season started and then had a stress fracture and was in a boot for over five weeks.
“During that time Myles worked everyday at the Zone and in his pool to keep his fitness level up. I want to thank our trainer Dustin Fink and the people out at the zone for getting him back to us the last few weeks.
“Most runners in his situation never make it back. Myles is not 100% in shape as the other guys, but that just tells you how good he is. He is still able to be in our top five.”
