Ram Boys Advance To State

Shelby Scores Sectional 3rd

SHELBYVILLE, IL — The Shelbyville boys Rams Cross-country team advanced to the state meet for the second year in a row and the 15th time in program history. placing third at the the state's most difficult 1A sectional, the Decatur Sectional at Hickory Point.

There were eight ranked teams in that one sectional vying for five spots to advance to state. Monticello was 1st (93), Tolono 2nd (97), Shelbyville 3rd (125), St. Joe-Ogden 4th (156), and Urbana 5th (161).

The three individual Shelbyville Lady Ram runners came up just a little short of qualifying for the state meet. Molley Yockey was 25th, Morgan Powers was 28th, and freshman Maggy Yockey was 54th.

"I very, very proud of these guys," said Ram coach Kevin Kramer. "To think we lost six seniors last year, five of which were in the top seven and came back this year and advanced again. It is just amazing."

Marcus Skinner finished 15th overall and Drennian Martin 18th, followed by Jaden Stockdale, Kenton Wilson, and Tyler Pasley. The five Ram scorers finished within 48 seconds of each other.

"The kids have done everything I have asked of them since the end of last year to get us to this point,: Coach Kramer said. "A lot of the credit goes to our senior co-captains Drennian Martin and Jaden Stockdale. They have led the way and shown our new guys what it takes to get to the top. I have no doubt we wouldn't be in the position we are today without their leadership."

The Rams were led by sophomore Marcus Skinner,, who placed 15th with a time of 15:55. Next in for the Rams was senior Drennian Martin, who was 18th with a time of 16:01. Senior Jaden Stockdale ran a 16:25 to finish in 31st place. Kenton Wilson was right behind in 35th place in 16:30.
