HUNTINGTON â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s girls team, paced by a fifth-place performance by Samantha Roush, came in 10th overall at the Huntington Invitational Cross Country Meet Saturday.
There were 15 complete teams in the girlsâ€™ meet. Columbia City Cross Country Head Coach Bob Fahl said it was a great step for his squad.
â€śAll of the girls improved their times from the non-scoring meet held last Tuesday at DeKalb,â€ť he said.
Roushâ€™s time was 19:27. Brooke Werstler came in 43rd at 22:06 for Columbia City. Samina Qureshi was 50th at 22:36, Shelby Allison was 64th in 23:02, Natalia Johnson was 66th at 23:19, Kristin Shively was 70th with a time of 23:25 and Erin Knepple had a mark of 23:39 to place 76th.
â€śThey need to find a way to close the gap on Sam Roush,â€ť Fahl said of the rest of the girls team.
Many of the 15 teams were from the area, and Fahl said it was a good assessment of where they stand.
