FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Sophomore Mike Medrano paced UTSA for the fifth consecutive meet and the Roadrunners saw their three-meet winning streak come to an end with a 12th-place finish at Saturday's 24th annual Chile Pepper Festival.

Medrano navigated the Agri Park 10,000-meter loop in 32:03.3, which was good for 44th place in the field of 313 runners.

Senior Daniel Balbontin (54th/32:15.2), junior Kyle Hawley (75th/32:33.5), freshman David Guillen (111th/33:05.2) and junior Nathan Collier (120th/33:13.5) rounded out the squad's scorers, as the Roadrunners netted 317 points in the 34-team field.

Oklahoma State saw six of its runners finish in the top 10 and the Cowboys easily defended their team championship with 20 points. Texas Tech (109) and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (173) rounded out the top three. Meanwhile, Texas Tech's Kennedy Kithuka clocked 28:53 to win the individual title by more than 20 seconds.

UTSA will be back in action in two weeks at the Western Athletic Conference Championships in Ruston, La.
