FLORENCE — Senior Zachary Traul and sophomore Eliza Eckman of Roseburg each ran to top three finishes on Saturday in the Woahink Invitational cross country meet at Honeyman State Park.

Traul finished second in the boys' 5,000-meter race in 16 minutes, 47.59 seconds. Junior Giuliano Scasso of Wilson outdueled Traul, clocking 16:46.27.

"The race started out slower than expected, which led to a very fast last kilometer," Traul said. "I felt the best I have in a couple of weeks and the weather and course were great. I was ahead going into the last stretch, but just got outkicked at the end."

Roseburg sophomore Nicholas Looper placed 21st (18:11.57) and Oakland senior Wyatt Smith finished 37th (18:50.23).

In the girls' race, Eckman finished third (19:47.20). Senior Hannah Hernandez of Philomath won the race (19:15.00) and senior Hannah Rannow of Siuslaw was second (19:43.60).

"I raced pretty good today," Eckman said. "After the first mile the race went by really fast. I really enjoyed the woods and the varying terrain."

Senior Samantha Eichman of Roseburg placed 14th (21:32.40). Sophomore Madison Turner led Sutherlin, taking 36th (22:55.50).

The Roseburg girls finished fourth in the team standings (68) and the boys were fifth (126).
