SAN ANTONIO — After taking a week off from competition, the UTSA women's cross country team will return to the course on Saturday morning when it runs at the 23rd annual Chile Pepper Festival in Fayetteville, Ark.

The 6,000-meter race will go off at 10:30 a.m. All told, there will be nearly 50 teams and 300 athletes competing.

The Roadrunners saw their three-meet winning streak come to an end two weeks ago at the prestigious Cowboys Jamboree, but UTSA still was able to record a solid showing with a 10th-place performance.

Leading the way was sophomore Nina Herrera, who ran the 6,000-meter OSU Cross Country Course in 18:38.68, and that was good for 50th place in 184-woman field. The El Paso native has been the Roadrunners' top finisher in the team's last five meets dating back to last fall.
