Chile Pepper Results!!! Worth the Drive.

Posted: October 4, 2015 in Uncategorized

Runners & Superfans,

The cross country team had a great weekend of running at the University of Arkansas’s Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival. It was definitely worth the drive to Fayetville to have 14 runners set personal records and 7 runners run season bests at this meet.  We had great weather, a great course, and great competition to help push all the kids to their absolute best.  I was so proud of how the kids ran and handled themselves as competitors and sportsmen.  Thank you to Coach Clements and all the kids for making this a great weekend.

Huge congratulations to Shane Burns who lowered his old school record of 16:38 to the new school record of 15:52.  This is an average mile time of 5:06 for the 3.1 miles.  Shane finished 23rd out of 658 runners from all over the Midwest. The team also had a great finish placing 31st out of 82 teams.  I know that may not sound great but the competition was huge and the teams were awesome.

Thanks to all the parents who support their kids in running and allowing them to attend this meet.  I hope they had a great time and enjoyed the festive atmosphere.  If you would like to see the complete results you kind find a link to in the links page at the top.  Search under “Results” for the Chile Pepper Festival.
