Shelby Burns Prairie Central Course

(Continued)

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

"Morgan ran a great time, but she could have been in top five in my opinion," Coach Kramer said. "She is such a competitor that she gets a little anxious and pushes the pace harder and earlier than she should, which ends up putting her in oxygen debt too early in the race.

"She has shown hints in other races of pacing herself and she did a little better. But she still needs to work on pacing. She will feel a lot better passing girls at the end, than feeling like she has a gorilla on her back the last mile when she goes out too fast."

There was a fresh-soph race for boys and one for girls.

The Ram fresh/soph boys won their division of the invitational. Preston Henze led the way with the first place finish in the race.

"Preston ran his best race ever," said Kramer. "He was right under 16:30, which would be his best time by about 45 seconds. Preston has been battling an injury all season long that effects his breathing. It still bothered him a little, but he was able to block it out for an outstanding effort. He looked very good the entire race."

All of the Ram fresh-soph runners had personal bests.

"Hunter Plummer ran just over 17:00's to place in the top three. Hunter has a ton of ability. He came out late and had his appendix taken out earlier in the season. This was only his third race. Sky is the limit for him if he decides he wants it bad enough."

Drake Manship ran a personal best 17:45.

"Drake is another runner who came out first day of official practice with no summer training, yet ran a personal best of 17:45 for 7th place," Coach Kramer said. "Drake has come a long way in a short period of time. Like Hunter he has unlimited potential. He could be as good as he wants. He just has to decide how dedicated he wants to be to reach his full potential on and off the field."
