Rams, St. Anthony Win Big At Trail Invite

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville boys and St. Anthony girls won the team titles at thw Shelby Trail Invite on Saturday, but individual achievements were a big part of the story as well.

Three, almost four runners broke the course records. The only two Shelby girls to run, Molly Yockey and Morgan Powers, finished 2nd and 3rd, overall.

"Molly was about 30 seconds slower than last year, but she is coming off of mono last winter and some injuries," said Ram coach Kevin Karmer. "She is training hard and has a great attitude.  I expect to have her running back to full speed by end of season."

Yockey ran a 19: 25. Powers ran a 19:28.

 

"Morgan is really running well," Coach Kramer said. "Over two minute improvement from last year.  She can be as good as she wants.  Struggling with pace right now, but getting better."

They were behind the reigning IESA 3-time champion, Anna Sophie Keller. Keller broke the course record and led St. Anthony to the girls team win.

Corbin Kakac of Fairfield and Andrew Sharp of Altamont broke the boys record and Drennian Martin of Shelbyville almost broke it as he led the Rams to the boys team win.

"Every boy beat his previous best time on the course and many had personal bests," Coach Kramer said. "Really working on pacing right now and kids are starting to see the benefit.  Drennian, even though he got third, just missed the course record of 15:50, from last year by Alex Matlock."

Marcus Skinner was the 2nd Ram across and Kenton Wilson the 3rd.

"Marcus a little bit of sore back but still cut over thirty seconds from last year," Kramer said. "Kenton had a great race.  He didn't run as well as I had hoped last week. He ran good, but I thought he would be closer to our top guys and he was today."
