Shelby 2nd At Shelby Open

Shelbyville boys track scored their second 2nd place finish at a big meet in a week. After the Rams were runner-ups at the OVC Meet by just four points on Monday, they repeated as runner-ups at the Shelby Open by just 6.66 points.

Newton won the Shelby Open with 70 points, followed by Shelbyville with 63.33 points. Neoga challenged finished 3rd (54, then Unity in 4th (44) and Arcola in the 5th (43), followed by Mt. Zion (41).

Central A&M was 7th (31), Stew-Stras 8th (30), Altamont 9th (26), and Pana in 10th (25.33). SOV was 15th (18) and CHBC 17th (7).

"I thought are kids did a great job considering we did not have baseball players for most of the meet due to a conflict with baseball game," said Ram coach Kevin Kramer. "Disappointed we couldn't get the win, but the guys fought hard. The meet came down to 4 x 4 where we had a slight lead of 3 points. Newton won the race to overtake the Rams. Rams finished 7th in 4 x 4. We really scraped together a team to try and win the meet."

"Drennian Martin was really only one fresh for race and he got us out in the lead with a nice 53.2 split. Preston Henze ran second in place of Myles Foor, who is nursing a minor injury. Preston showed a lot of heart. He had already ran a strong 4 x 8 split and had fallen in open 400 and skinned himself up pretty good. Preston gave it everything he had, but he was obviously hurting from previous races and falling down in the 400. Kenton Wilson ran third leg for the Rams instead of Tyler Hendryx, who was playing baseball. Kenton had run two previous 800's and was sick, but he didn't flinch when I told him he was running. He did a fine job. Cory Powers ran anchor for the Rams and gave it everything he could. But, he had just run a personal best in the 1600 and was hurting. He ran real well and hopefully this will give him confidence to do it again at sectionals. I was really happy with their effort. They knew we needed to finish 2nd to Newton and did their best."
