Short-Staffed Rams In Middle At Monty

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

Because of the spartan conditions, no scores were officially kept at the Monticello Boys Invite on Friday. Shelbyville scored in the middle of the 18-team event.  

"Extreme cold temperatures and wind made for a really tough night to compete, but I thought we did very well," said Coach Kevin Kramer. 

Field Events:

Triple Jump: Kurtis Cameron - 17th out of 21. 33ft-0in.

I thought Kurtis did a pretty good job jumping in the cold and windy conditions. Of all the events the jumps were going to be effected the most by the weather. 

Shot Put: Garrett Ferguson - 16th out of 44. 39ft-4in. Mikel Welton - 14th out of 44. 40ft-4.5in.

Garrett and Mikel threw decent. We really need to get them in the mid 40's for them to score in the bigger meets. I think they can do it. They just have to put everything together in a meet situation.

High Jump: Darin Breeden - 5th out of 20. 5ft-8in. Much like the triple jump the high jumpers were having a rough time with cold and wind. Tough for them to stay warm and loose. I really think Darin has looked good the last two meets. He isn't in top shape yet. I think the basketball injury he had has set him back a little, but I am confidant he will be where he needs to be by end of season.

3200 Run: Alex Matlock - 5th out of 33. 10:04.9, Marcus Skinner - 6th out of 33. 10:09.19, Seth Applegate - 13th out of 33. 10:43.8

The 3200 guys did a great job. This was a really tough meet for 3200 runners. You will see several all-staters from this field of runners. Alex and Marcus both had personal bests and Seth had a seasonal best. I was real happy how they competed against the tough field. The one area we have to improve on is pacing. We are going way too fast the first two laps and that is hurting the second half of our race. I look forward to seeing improve in that area. But you can't be too unhappy about their effort and bests.
