Answer: Betty won, then Dave, Adam, Charles and Eileen.

By placing the person who finished higher to the left we have:

1. Dave finished before Adam         Dave    > Adam
2. Eileen finished after Betty       Betty   > Eileen
3. Adam finished before Charles      Adam    > Charles
4. Eileen finished after Dave        Dave    > Eileen
5. Betty finished before Adam        Betty   > Adam
6. Dave finished after Betty         Betty   > Dave
7. Charles finished before Eileen    Charles > Eileen

From 1 and 3:

   Dave > Adam > Charles

Adding 7:

   Dave > Adam > Charles > Eileen

Adding 6:

   Betty > Dave > Adam > Charles > Eileen

Which is the final placing for all of the players, and can double checked with the remaining clues.
