SHELBYVILLE, IL. —
Triple Jump: 33'-6 1/2", 18th out of 30, Kurtis Cameron.
"Kurtis has been working hard in practice but has not had many attempts in the triple jump because of the weather. Kurtis will get better with more practice and we will need him at end of year."
High Jump: 5'-8", 11th out of 22, Tyler Hendryx.
"Tyler is another of our baseball guys so it is hard getting practice in for him," Coach Kramer said. "But I thought he did a great job. Because of little practice we have him on short approach and he was still able to clear 5-8. He was over 5-10 several times but either hit it coming down or with back of his legs. It will be nice to have Darin and Tyler both giving us points in HJ this year."
Pole Vault: 11'-6", 9th out of 14, Luke Hatfield.
"Luke is another baseball guy that we have struggled to get some practice time with," Kramer said. "He really doesnt have his approach down so for him to even make a height I was pleased. Between the weather and baseball it is tough to get that approach down and he will continue to struggle until he gets the repititions."
Shot Put: 41'-1 3/4", 14th out of 33, Mikel Welton.
"Mikel has improved about a foot from last year, but we are going to need him to get up in the mid 40's if he wants to score in the post season," Kramer said"
"This friday is the Illinois Top Times Meet in Bloomington, Illinois. Top teams from around the state will be at this meet," Coach Kramer said. "This was a qualifying meet, so we don't know how many we will have in it until final entries monday night. I want to stress this is not the indoor state meet that a lot of people refer to it as. While there are a lot of teams from around the state, not every team even runs indoor meets. But it is an honor to qualify for the meet and is an indicator of possible post-season success."
