Shelby Burns Prairie Central Course

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — The Shelbyville boys cross country team scored a sizzling 30 points on Saturday to scald the competition and the course at the Prairie Central Meet.

"We had an outstanding day," said Ram coach Kevin Kramer. "Everyone who ran had personal bests. Its tough to single out performances because there were so many great efforts today."

All five runners ran under 16:00 minutes for the first time in school history. The Rams won the varsity division by scoring a low 30 points over ranked Pleasant Plains (49).

"The 4th ranked Rams ran the best any team has ran in school history," Kramer said. "The guys really put the hammer down today. Pleasant Plains, who is ranked in the Top 10 came in thinking they were going to beat us. They were ahead after the first mile, but all of our guys ran smart and ended up taking it to them."

Drennian Martin had a personal best time of 15:12 and came in a close 2nd overall.

"If Dennian had another 400 he would have won," Coach Kraemr said. "But I am not going to take anything away from him. He ran almost even splits for all three of his miles in running one of the fastest times ever by a Shelbyville runner."

It was a tight group at the finish with Marcus Skinner just two seconds back (15:14) in 4th place.

"Marcus ran real well, but got out-kicked at line by one of the Plains runners, who was also a sophomore," Kramer said. "That was a little disappointing for Marcus, because that was for top sophomore in the race award. But like Drennian, Marcus ran even splits and ran smart."

Jaden Stockdale finished 14 second slater in 6th place.

"He passed a lot of kids during the second half of the race," Kramer said. "He ran the best race of his career. Jaden is finally 100% and it showed. He moved up the entire race and beat the runners he was supposed to beat. I couldn't be more proud or happier for Jaden. He is a great kid and deserves to run as well as he did."
