Erica Schroeder of San Marcos won the individual title at the Ojai Invitational, and three Royals on the boys and girls teams placed in the top 10 at the cross country competition at Lake Casitas on Saturday.

Schroeder covered the hilly 3-mile race in 17 minutes, 46 seconds. She was followed by Natalie McClure in third in 18:54 and Mya Adornetto in eighth place in a time of 19:42.

Logan Briner led the San Marcos boys with a fifth-place finish in 16:11; Jason Peterson was eighth in 16:19 and Jerry Swider took 10th in 16:23.

The race doesn't do team scores.

The next competition for the Royals is the Dos Pueblos Invitational at Shoreline Park on Friday, Sept.23.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
