Chile Pepper Festival A Huge Hit!!

Posted: October 5, 2014 in Uncategorized

Runners & Superfans,
The cross country team had a great day of running at the University of Arkansas’s Chile Pepper Festival in Fayetville, AR. I know I can not express the shear magnitude of this event in this article, but please know that this was the most epic cross country meet we have ever attended. The varsity boys race had 75 teams and over 500 runners. The starting line alone was amazing and the speed of the race was just as awesome. The top 27 boys in the race ran sub 16 for the 5k. The girl’s race was just as impressive with a huge field and the top girls running sub 18 for the 5K. As for Strafford, we may not have been at the top but the results were still great. Of the 22 runners who represented Strafford 22 set personal records, which may make this the single best day of running for SHS.
Special congratulations to Shane Burns who broke the school record with a time of 16:46.8, breaking the old record of 16:51 held by Zach Cobb.

Hopefully, I get the results pasted in below. These kids ran crazy fast.
