Shelby Boys 2nd At St. Joe

SHELBYVILLE — Shelbyville boys cross country (#10-ranked) beat 23 other teams at the big St. Joe-Ogden meet on Saturday, losing only to #6 ranked Tolono Unity.

"It was a pretty good day for us," said Ram coach Kevin Kramer. "The Rams finished 2nd to Tolono Unity by 15 points. The Rams were trying to defend their title they won last season.

Shelbyville beat several other ranked teams in the meet: #1 Monticello, #5 St. Joseph-Ogden, #8 Urbana University High, #11 Tremont, #19 El Paso-Gridley, and #20 Paxton-Buckley-Loda.

"The boys had a great day. Drennian Martin, Marcus Skinner, Kenton Wilson, Jaden Stockdale, and Tyler Pasley beat last year's teams school record team time by running 1:19.00 combined top 5 runners time. Last year's team of Neil Yockey, Alex Matlock, Cory Powers, Drennian Martin, and Jaden Stockdale ran 1:19.59."

Marcus Skinner and Drennian Martin ran to a virtual dead heat by running 15:14 for 5th and 6th place respectively.

"Their times put them in a tie for 5th place on Shelbyville All-Time list for Shelbyville runners," Coach Kramer said. "They both ran really well. We have not had anyone run faster than that since Lucas Kramer won the race in 1999 in 15:10. They were in the chase pack after the top three leaders. They are in position to make themselves one of the top 25 runners in the state."

Kenton Wilson finished in 21st place in a time of 15:52.

"His time would have put him in top 25 All-time, but since Drennian and Marcus ran what they did, he just falls out of top 25," Coach Kramer said. "I thought he ran pretty good.

"He was a little confused on where he was at during the race, so I think he thinks he could have done a little better. He normally is around 20 to 30 seconds back of our first runner and he was 38 seconds, so he is probably right. But still a good effort and he is starting to show some consistency which is good."
