Mt. Vernon boys track places second in conference


Mt. Vernon's boys track and field team placed second at the South Seven Conference meet on Friday.

Just overall looking at all the events, we finished where we thought we would,” Mt. Vernon coach Clint Turner said. “We didn't really have any surprises one way or the other, negatively or positively.”

The Rams scored 122 points. Cahokia won the team title with 166 points. Other team scores were: Carbondale 110, Marion 81, Centralia 55 and Althoff 17.

We ran just about as well as we can and just confidence-wise going into the sectional that's what you want,” Turner said. “You don't want to have any doubts, negative vibes is what I call it. You want to be able to go in feeling good and getting qualified.”

Mt. Vernon had conference champions in five events. Joseph McDanel won the pole vault. David Modert was victorious in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters. Robert Grider won the 100 and 200 meters.

Jordan Wilemon was second in the 1,600 meters for Mt. Vernon. Logan Kulinski was also second in the pole vault. All of Mt. Vernon's relay teams placed second behind Cahokia.

Mt. Vernon will compete in Monday's freshman/sophomore conference meet before heading into the Herrin sectional on Thursday.
