Rams, St. Anthony Win Big At Trail Invite



The younger guys, Tyler Passley and Preston Henze really stepped up as Jaden Stockdale was out for the race.

"Tyler Pasley and Preston Henze really ran well today," Coach Kramer said. "Both their paces were great and they finished strong.  Our split was only 1:31 compard to 1:45 last week, even running without Jaden. So, those two got it done today for us. The same can be said of Jordan Sieger. Jordan ran under 19:00. He just keeps getting better."

Shelby had one of their girls out, nursing a minor strain and another JV runner competed.

"On girls side, Maggy Yockey is out with calf strain," Coach Kramer said. "Hope to get her back next week or week after. Alexis Woods came out to help us get a full team.  Still need one more.  Alexis only has a couple of practices in so will take some time."

Erik Bowers of Shelbyville added one more kudo to the event, winning the boys open race, while Ashlynd Risley of Sullivan-Okaw Valley won the girls open race.

"In JV race, it was  great to see Erik Bowers with the win," Kramer said. "He is starting to come on for us. He has put himself in postition to be a major contributor by next season or maybe even this year." 

The rest of the young running Rams performed well.

"Our young freshman and sophomores continue to impress me, Coach Kramer said. "Josh Bernson, Drake Manship, Seth Durbin, and Isaak Spain continue to run times that as freshman are faster than most of our seniors from last years 3rd place state team ran as freshman. They have a chance to be really good if they keep on working hard and are dedicated.

"Nick Shaw just started running xc last year and cut over two minutes, so he could be a factor in the future also.  We kept Jaden out with a sore quadricep and he may even miss another week. We want to make sure he is healed for end of the year.  Hunter Plummer is still out also with an injury and we look for him to come back in a couple of weeks."


The Rams will have a tough meet next Saturday in Tuscola.   "Monticello is ranked #1 in girls and probably will be for the boys," Kramer said. "Both  won a big invitational in Peoria.  Unity boys are also a top three team. We will probably be working on pace again with Jaden out."
