Rams race to second in South Seven

CENTRALIA —

Mt. Vernon's boys track team placed second to Cahokia at the South Seven meet Friday.

The Rams finished with 145 points. Cahokia had 191 points.

“We don't like finishing second,” Mt. Vernon coach Clint Turner said. “Cahokia's a great team. They are really good. They're an overwhelming favorite for the state championship again.”

Other team scores were: Carbondale 81, Marion 69, Centralia 62, Belleville Althoff 0.

The Rams ended the meet with four event winners.

“I think we ran just about as well as we could possibly run,” Turner said. “We got more points out of the field events than I thought we would.”

David Modert won a pair of events for the Rams. He finished the 3,200 meter run in a time of 10:03.36. He won the 1,600 meters with a time of 4:35.44.
