Roseburg x-c girls

The Roseburg High School girls cross country team poses following the Ash Creek Invitational meet in Monmouth on Saturday.

MONMOUTH — Eliza Eckman and Preston Smith were the top finishers for Roseburg High's cross country teams in the Ash Creek Invitational on Saturday.

Eckman placed 18th in the girls 5,000-meter race in a season-best 19 minutes, 32.9 seconds. Roseburg's Charis Childers was 65th (21:13.4, season best). The Indians finished 13th in the team standings (367).

Chloe Foerster of Jesuit won the race in 17:24.5.

"Our girls team was impressive when you consider that we have had to practice indoors many days the past couple of weeks due to smoke," Roseburg coach Nathan Eckman said. "Eliza had a smile on her face at the start as she was so happy to be able to compete in a big invitational again."

On the boys' side, Smith finished 65th (17:16.7) and teammate Levi Campbell was 75th (17:34.6). Roseburg took 13th in the team standings (407).

Caleb Lakeman of Tualatin won the boys' race in 14:58.5.

"I was super impressed with our boys pack today," Nathan Eckman said. "Our No. 1 through No. 4 runners finished less than a minute apart and they're hungry for more."
