GRACE TO HOST FIRST POKER TOURNAMENT For the first time ever, GRACE is hosting a Charity Poker Tournament. Southlake poker celebrity Bryan Campanello – a WSOP Circuit Main Event Champion with over $1,000,000 in winnings – is participating in this tournament. Campanello will start it off with a brief overview of how professionals play differently than friends. The poker tournament will be held on the evening of January 19 in a private tasting room at the new location for Classic Wine Storage. Classic will be serving collectorlevel wines for the evening. Scratch Kitchen will provide the “High Roller Meal.” Shannon O’Brien Travel and American Airlines are sponsoring the Grand Prize – a three-day trip to Las Vegas, including a luxury hotel stay and flights on American Airlines.
CARROLL CROSS COUNTRY TEAMS SHINE AT STATE Carroll Dragon Cross Country has a long history at the State Championships. Last month, they continued in a tradition of excellence, with top five finishes for both teams. The boys team earned a second place finish and the girls earned a fourth place finish at the Class 6A State Championship in Round Rock. While running a challenging course through Old Settler’s Park, the girls only missed the podium by nine points, while the boys walked away with second place behind the Woodlands. Both teams posted remarkable times. The entire varsity boys team met Elite Performance Standards with times of 16:30 or less. All seven girls on varsity met the same standard with times of 19:45 or less.
