EOU harriers take second at LCSC

LEWISTON, Idaho — Isaac Updike led the No. 8 Eastern Oregon University men’s cross country team to a second-place finish at the LCSC Inland Empire Championships on Saturday afternoon. Updike finished the race in third place. The women’s cross team finished eighth at the meet.

Updike finished the 8K course in a time of 24 minutes, 10 seconds, which is the third all-time fastest time in school history and third fastest by a senior. The men’s team finished the race with 53 points, five points behind the winner Lewis-Clark State College. EOU finished with a time of 2:04:09, the second fastest team in school history, only behind the 2003 team that was ranked No. 1 in the NAIA.

“In the men’s race, it was a classic battle with No. 4 LCSC and a much improved College of Idaho team,” EOU head coach Ben Welch said. “Both those teams got out very hard and fast and held substantial leads for most of the race.”

Kody Shriver finished fifth overall with a time of 24:22, while Hans Roelle, Kody Coxen and Alex Martinez finished 10th, 15th and 20th, respectfully.

Sasha Gonzalez led the EOU women’s team with a 26th-place finished followed by Rachel Roelle. Gonzalez finished the 5K course in a time of 18:37, the third fastest time on the EOU all-time freshman list.

The women’s team finished with a time of 1:36:39 and a time score of 196.

Eastern Oregon is off for the next two weeks but returns to action on Nov. 9 when it will run in the Cascade Collegiate Conference Championships, which are held in Caldwell, Idaho.
