The stellar cross country career of Skyline High senior Eleanor Wikstrom came to an end when she placed 10th in the Division III race at the CIF-State Championships.
Wikstrom's placing matches Caroline Garrett's 10th place finish in 2017 as the highest ever at the State Meet by a girl from the CIF-Oakland Section.
Wikstrom ran the Woodward Park 5000-meter course in 18:13.70 and was fifth among girls in the senior class. Her time, in her third trip to the State Final, was a 20-second improvement and her placement 21 spots better than her finish as a junior running in Division II.
Her season included a 5K PR of 18:02.70 run at the Clovis Invitational on the State Meet course and her first section individual title.
