Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival

This weekend the 29th Annual Chile Pepper Cross Country will be held at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR. There will be several Texas programs who will converge onto the course looking to repeat the amount of success that Texas had last year.

In 2016, the results were about as good as they could have been. The Southlake Carroll boys won by almost 40 points with Plano West came in fourth. 

On the girls side, it was a good old fashioned Texas tango. Keller took the team title by a slim margin over Southlake Carroll 86-90.
