Senior Zachary Traul highlighted the performances of Roseburg High School runners in the Southwest Conference pre-district cross country meet on Friday at Lane Community College in Eugene.

Traul finished second in the boys’ junior/senior race, covering the 5,000-meter course in 16 minutes, 19.40 seconds. Junior Vincent Mestler of Sheldon won the race in 16:18.40.

“Zach had an amazing day,” Roseburg coach Nathan Eckman said. “With another great summer of work, he continues to move up the depth chart as one of the top runners in the state. What made me super excited about this race was Zach was battling a cold all week and he still came ready to battle today.”

Senior Steen Olson placed 28th (20:47.40) and senior Parker Townsend finished 32nd (21:09.20) for the Indians.

In the girls’ freshmen/sophomore race, Roseburg sophomore Eliza Eckman finished fifth in 20:38.60. South Eugene sophomore Hannah Seubert was the winner (19:30.20). RHS freshman Charis Childers placed ninth (21:49.20).

In the girls’ junior/senior race, senior Sophia Tate led the Tribe with a 16th-place finish in 23:17.00. Senior Samantha Eichman was right behind in 17th (23:17.10).

Senior Madison Elmore of South Eugene won the race (18:26.80), more than a minute ahead of runner-up Kate Bouse of S.E. (19:47.70).

Sophomore Nicholas Looper was Roseburg’s top finisher in the boys’ freshmen/sophomore race, placing 17th in 18:50.30. Sophomore Preston Smith finished 23rd (19:28.10).

Sophomore Michael Maiorano of South Medford was the winner (16:32.00).

“I’m so happy with how everyone performed today,” Nathan Eckman said. “For many of our student-athletes, this is their first high school race and for some their first race ever. It takes a ton of courage and resolve to toe the line and race. I couldn’t be prouder of our team.”
