2015 THSRA State Finals Grand Entry Guidelines

2015-2016 Ariat Reporters

e will have morning & evening grand entries on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and also for the short go matinee on Saturday. Each region has been assigned 2 performances but I made them on the same day so it would be easier to remember. I also divided up the Monday and Tuesday morning grand entries because the student officers tend to have other commitments those mornings and need help. Please have at least 5 members from your region to help carry flags. More than 5 would be nice. I assigned 4 regions for Friday since contestants have started going home by then. If there are not enough contestants for all of the flags, then they will be asked to carry a second flag. If you have a member that likes to carry sponsor flags, they are welcome to help at any performance. Some understand it is a good way to get their horse in the arena before competition. Contestants will be asked to hold the flag pole upright and make one lap around the edge of the arena at a slow lope so that the sponsor flag is displayed behind them while the announcer reads the script for their flag.

hat is rodeo? Webster defines rodeo as an exhibition or contest in which cowboys show their skill at riding broncos, roping calves, wrestling steers, etc. But rodeo really has a different meaning to everyone. To a spectator, it’s a night out where they get to break out their boots and hats and

watch cowboys and cowgirls compete. To a contestant, it’s just another rodeo. Hoping they will draw a good one, hoping their horses works, and hoping the Good Lord is on their side so they can pull a check, earn some points and maybe even win a shiny new buckle. To the rodeo moms and dads, it’s making sure the entries are sent in on time, making sure the video camera is charged and ready to record every run. Its late nights and celebration, and occasionally a pat on the back saying “It’s ok, you’ll get em’ next time.” To the rodeo committee, it’s making sure they give everyone the best rodeo possible. It’s months of planning and meeting and tough decisions, it’s long nights and countless hours all because they care so much about the sport. They care about how it bring families together, how it exposes them to the western way of life, and they care about the opportunities it allows. So, what does rodeo mean to you? To me it means I can do what I love with the people and animals I love. It means I get to spend every weekend with people who share the same morals and values as I do. It means I get to travel to new places and make memories that will last a life time. Sure, rodeo is about roping sharp and riding hard, but it’s also so much more. And we call this thing a rodeo.

Edgar’s ultimate goal for the state finals is to make the short round, and then go even own method of preparation, practice, and further to nationals. He is working to achieve this goal by “practicing on my consistency, timing, and working with my horse. I also need to make sure I keep both myself and my horses in shape and on the right path in order to make it to nationals,” Edgar says. Overall, the contestants of Region 2 who have qualified for the state finals are anything but unprepared. They are motivated, hard working, and determined to compete to the best of their ability and finish the year out well. For some, the road will end at the state finals, which is a great accomplishment and a great way to finish the year. For others, they may even have the opportunity to advance to the high school national finals in July. No matter what, these contestants have come very far in their rodeo careers, and have proven to both themselves and to others that they are very good at what they do. The State Finals Rodeo may be challenging, but the qualifiers of Region 2 have shown that the possibilities are endless for what they can achieve, and I am confident that Region 2 will be extremely well represented this year. REGION II CHAMPION HEELER, EDGAR TARANGO.

Region III Brings the Heat

By ChEYENNE BRITAIN

T

– ARIAT Performance Reporter

here's a lot that goes into preparing for the THSRA State Finals in Abilene, and I got the chance to talk with a few of Region 3's elite athletes on how they're preparing for the big show and what they're looking forward to the most! "The state finals is a great event that brings the best out in all the tough Texas regions. I like the competition and I want redemption from winning 5th last year" says Paden Bray, when asked what he looks forward to the most about the State Finals. "I look forward to it all, getting to see everyone, getting to get on some of the best stock, and getting the opportunity to show off what I've been working for all year" says Region 3 All-Around Cowboy, Brody Yeary. "I'm most excited about getting to go back again this year, it being so close to my hometown & getting to run in such a great rodeo environment" says Shelby Buchanan. Presli Bray says what she looks forward to as a Freshman heading into her first High School State Finals is, "Getting to be competitive with kids from all around the state, and getting to see friends from the other regions!" There's a lot of countless hours of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears that go into preparing for such an event as the THSRA State Finals! Here are how some of Region 3's athletes are getting ready for the big show! "I've been working on keeping my horse in the best shape he can be in, all in all keeping him relaxed & ready to compete to the best of his ability. As for getting myself

prepared for finals, mentally has been my toughest challenge, I think one of the biggest things I have to remind myself is, God is in control & has a plan" states Shelby. "I have been keeping my good horses working good by doing lots of dummy work and as for mentally prepared, I have been going to lots of ropings to keep my mental game sharp" says senior Hunter Koch. "I have been practicing on making the little things the big things to have great runs! As far as mentally, I think you have to tell yourself you can do it and you can be competitive with anyone if you believe in yourself and put your trust in God to help you through it!" says Region 3 freshman, Presli Bray, who qualified in the goat tying. "I am just visualizing my self there, riding my bulls and horses and getting on practice stock" says senior Brody Yeary. "I rope with my partner Ky all the time and work at it with him as a team. Mental is a big part of it. By the state finals we will be prepared, both mentally and physically" says Paden Bray, who qualified in the team roping with cousin, Ky Bray. From what these contestants had to say about how they're preparing for the state finals, it sounds like Region 3 will definitely be "Bringing the Heat" to Abilene! I can't wait to see everyone there and would like to wish each and everyone of you the best of luck!

PERFORMANCE REPORT

Unsung Heros

By MCKENZIE RAY– ARIAT Performance Reporter

I

f there's one person that you can count on to be able to handle most any situation that could arise at a rodeo, it's the secretary. Rodeo secretaries are the unsung heroes of the sport. They're the first ones to arrive, and more often than not, are the last to leave. They keep not only our rodeos, but our associations running smoothly. It takes a certain kind of person to be a rodeo secretary. Someone who's personable, dedicated, and hard-working. Julie White is all of those things and more, and it's one of the many reasons why she makes such an amazing secretary for us in Region IV. Julie started her work as a secretary in 2000, for the Texoma Junior Rodeo Association, where she served as their secretary for 9 years. In addition to that, Julie also served as the Oklahoma Junior High Rodeo Association secretary for 3 years, during which time she again worked for the TJRA for another 2 years. In July of 2014 she took the position in Region IV, and has been the very best that we could ask for. Julie's involvement in rodeo was family driven from the very start, "I would say that my daughter's love of horses started this journey for our family." She said, "Katie began rodeoing at

5 years old, and Kolton started participating in play days when he was 2 years old." Julie's husband, Rodney, had started team roping after the passing of his late brother, and the family started putting on team ropings and weekly practice sessions in their arena. "Rodney, gave up his roping to start hauling the kids to rodeos. We as a family just jumped head first into the rodeo life. Rodney has served on the board of directors for most of the associations our kids have been a part of. I felt that being a secretary would be my 'contribution' to our way of life." Julie said. When asked, Julie will tell you that her favorite thing about Region IV is her son, Kolton White, who's a senior this year. "Getting to be with him and travel down the road with him is very important to me." But of her favorite high school rodeo memory? "My all time favorite memory is watching my daughter, Katie, win the reserve champion Breakaway roping in 2010 and making the National Team. I hope that Kolton can do the same this year!" Julie plans to return as our secretary for the 2015-2016 rodeo season, and says, "As far as what I hope to accomplish this upcoming year would be for the year to run smoothly, and to meet all my deadlines. I hope to make this rodeo season an enjoyable and a memorable one for each and everyone that participates in Region IV! I would like to see all have a great rodeo season. Fearless IV has a great group of kids and parents!" Lastly, Julie would like to thank those who have helped her the most with her secretary duties this year, "Mimi Barker, Janna Prinz, Bobbi Wolfe, and most especially, Holly Folmar. I could not have done it without your help!" She said. And from all of us in Region IV, we would like to thank you, Mrs. White, for everything that you've done for us this year! We all look forward to another year with you!

PERFORMANCE REPORT

By hANNAh hEMPhILL – ARIAT Performance Reporter

I

’ve always been told it takes courage, strength and commitment to make your dreams come true. As athletes, our determination along with attitude dictates the outcome of any competition. Character traits

such as drive, ambition, and grit can make the difference in winning or losing. The great sport of rodeo prepares us by encouraging competition and challenging us to be our best, give our best and perform our best. Rodeo requires determination, drive and dedication which set the groundwork for the tools you will need to succeed in life. Rodeo requires practice and patience and dealing with diverse groups of people which prepares us as we interact in college, the business world or in our everyday lives. Rodeo teaches compassion whether it is for the animals or the other cowboys and cowgirls you are competing against and this is something we will carry with us and use not only to succeed in our professional careers but most importantly in our Christian life. Rodeo allows us the opportunity to make lifelong friends that support and encourage us as well as challenge us to achieve new goals and with these support systems in place our success is certainly achieveable.

PERFORMANCE REPORT

Winning Isn’t Everything

By CIERRA GOODE

– ARIAT Performance Reporter

W

in or lose always keep a mindset of a champion. Most of us always seem to experience losing before winning. You always have to go through lows before you can reach those highs. Wining isn’t always everything. “Sometimes it’s hard to keep a positive attitude on the road because you spend a lot of time by yourself, may not be winning and may not be going how you want to, but you have to remember at the end of the day this is what I choose to do. Nobody’s making me do this.” – Sherry Cervi. Sherry Cervi is the 2013 reigning WPRA World Champion barrel racer also owns numerous barrel racing records and four WPRA world championships. Sherry Cervi is one of the most decorated barrel racers of all time. But she didn’t start out that way. As a kid Sherry Cervi succeeded in about ever event she did but barrel racing. She would continuously practice and practice till the sun went down. She struggled until she really found a horse that clicked with her. But the harder things got the more

determined she became. Even one of the best went through those times of failing but one thing was for sure she never gave up. Winning doesn’t teach you how to keep pushing. Losing is a way to make you work harder when things aren’t going your way. “To be a champion, I think you have to see the big picture. It’s not about winning and losing; it’s about everyday hard work and about thriving on a challenge. It’s about embracing the pain that you’ll experience at the end of a race and not being afraid. I think people think too hard and get afraid of a certain challenge.”- Summer Sanders There is a lot of truth behind every champion that has lost. It’s really about how bad you really want something. Also about how far you are willing to push even when you are tired of losing or even coming in second. Always remember this quote from Wilma Rudolph, “Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.

igh school rodeo meant a lot of things to me. Some of those were that it was a place I could go to hang out with people that I didn’t go to school with and meet new friends, it meant I was going to get to spend the weekend doing the thing I liked to do the most and it meant I was going to get to spend the weekend with my parents outside of our everyday lives. Getting to hang out with the people that I didn’t get to see in my everyday life meant a lot to me because it allowed me to meet new people and gain a lot more friendships and bond with people that I never would have if I wouldn’t have competed in high school rodeo. They are like a second family to me and they are people that share my same love for the sport of rodeo. Spending the weekend at a rodeo meant a lot to me because rodeo is a way of life to me. I have had the dream to rodeo ever since I could walk. I grew up riding horses and going to rodeos and I have loved the sport of rodeo since the first time I got on a horse. My family means more to me than anything which is why anytime I get the chance to spend time with them I take it. I was able to spend the whole weekend with them. Family is what keeps me going for many reasons such as they are always there for me and support me in any and all ways possible. High school rodeo is very family

oriented. It was always quality family time and it was a mini family vacation when we couldn’t afford other vacations. Every High School rodeo weekend me and my family would load up the truck and trailer and head to Edna. We would always jam to a playlist full of rodeo songs that would help get us pumped up for the long weekend ahead. Every night we would grill something for dinner and have a little dummy roping with friends. We even scooped horse poop out of the trailer and blew up air mattresses to accommodate extra friends and hauling partners. Region 7 held a Cowboy Prom each year at the December rodeo which brought its own set of family fun and good times. It gave families and chance to spend time together and get to know each other outside of just the stands or behind the chutes. I always looked forward to going to High School rodeo because it meant I got to hang out and spend time with my friends and family. Region 7 has brought me so many opportunities and brought so many people into my life. One huge thing it has done is help me receive some scholarships that will help me pay for college. It has also helped me become more competitive as well as help me figure out what I want to do with my life. High School rodeo meant a lot to me. It was great times, great memories and I am glad I got to call Region 7 my home. I wish great times, great memories, family fun and lots of success to all present and future Region 7 members!!!

PERFORMANCE REPORT

By Montana

Cox – ARIAT Performance Reporter

s the year comes to an end, we start to think about those who are moving on to bigger things. I would like to take this time to put some Region 8 seniors in the spot light. The first senior, Miss Bailee Branscum, she comes to us from Bellville, where she attends Bellville High School. She has competed in high school rodeo for all 4 years of high school. She is attending Ranger College in Stephenville Tx, where after she is planning on moving to Tarleton University in Stephenville. She hopes major in business to pursue her career in fashion coordinating. Bailee tells me that “Lynn Smith has made a big impact on my life inside and outside of the arena.She helped make me a better goat tier and helped me learn how to push myself inside and outside of the arena.” Also Baillee told me that “Region 8 showed me how to just go out there and have fun doing what you love and not worrying about trying too hard. Everyone there was always so supportive of each other and it was pretty cool to be able to have such a great experience meeting everyone at region 8”. Another outstanding senior is

Miss Lindy Swaim, she comes to us from Tilden Tx, where she is a senior at McMullen County High School. She will be attending Tarleton State University in Stephenville Tx. to pursue a degree in Early Education. She wants to become a Kindergarten teacher. She tells me “My dream is to be able to touch the lives of children and push them to their full potential, so that they may live a successful live.” She has been a member of the THSRA for four years and during that time she has served as an officer for region 8 every year, including: Queen, Extreme Team News Ariat Performance Reporter, and President for 2 years. She has qualified every year to state finals in girls cutting or pole bending. Her favorite event is pole bending. Her favorite horse is Dynamite. She says “I would like to thank my parents for all their love and support. I wouldn’t be where I am with out them. I am truly blessed to have them as my role models.” Also she tells me “THSRA has given me so many memories and I’ve met a lot of good friends through this great organization. Rodeo has taught me many great life lessons: how to stay positive, have good sportsmanship, and always learn from your mistakes.” Our last senior is Mr. Wesley Vickers, who is a senior at Sinton High school. Wesley is going to attend Blinn Jr. College for his basics then transferring to Texas A&M University to pursue a degree in civil engineering to one day become an architect. He tells me “My dads made the biggest impact in my life, by not only helping me in rodeo but also in life. He taught me to be respectful and to give 100% in everything I do.” He also tells me “Through region 8 I have had the opportunity to make life long friends.” Region 8 wishes all the seniors the best of luck in the road ahead of them, and to remember “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” Dr. Seuss.

PERFORMANCE REPORT

By KELSEY ThOMPSON– ARIAT Performance Reporter

T

he time has come..... STATE FINALS. As these last few weeks of school are flying by I know competing at the prestigious THSRA State Finals is all I'm thinking about! Another thought also crosses my mind, I can't believe how crazy tough Texas's Finals are!!! I mean how many other states have 10 regions that also have a finals of their own to determine who goes to state?! That's mind blowing! Then to make it Nationals from Texas, holy cow that's like making it to the NFR! Between the performances, awesome dances, the Special Kid's Rodeo, Ariat Olympics, and the very generous jackpots that are put on; How can you beat that? But we wouldn't be such an idolized state if it wasn't for all the members, hard working directors, alumni, and parents that have dedicated their lives to make Texas High School Rodeo the BEST OF THE BEST. So thank you to everybody for that. Now for the first time qualifiers, I

hope I have amped you enough that you're packing the trailer right now!! On the serious note, first time qualifiers, things can be overwhelming. So much is going on and sometimes you don't make the best use of your time. Trust me, I was a victim of this. BUT I didn't have anybody giving me this advice. 1. Don't choose driving around with friends over working/taking care of your horses. I know it's tempting, I'm 18; been there before. But with being there before, I know any day I would take back those driving late nights with friends to be wrapping legs or working my horses. Because guess what, I didn't do well the next performance. Your horses are not used to being confined in a stall for a week, there are some things you have to do different to keep them performing well. 2. Don't overthink your runs. I know this is hard to do, but I promise it will be a extremely important factor in whether you do well or not. You come into state with a game plan and most of the time it's different than the game plan that got you there. So don't change anything that's not broken. Go in there and make the run you have practiced a million times. 3. Abilene + Summer = Excruciatingly Hot Weather! *** VERY IMPORTANT*** Fill up your horses water buckets at least 4 times a day. Sounds like a lot, but it's hot as a barrel racer after a bad run underneath those barns. Make sure to drink yourself too, you don't want a dehydrated rodeo contestant or horse. 4. Take care of YOURSELF! Going back to the previous bullet, you have got to take care of yourself as well. Drink lots of water, eat well (well as in good for you not well this is really delicious), and get rest!! Don't stay out all night when you are up at 8 A.M the next morning. Again be smart on the usage of your time. 5. Finally, HAVE FUN. Even though you are there to win and compete, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy yourself as well. Participate in activities, I promise it will be so worth it if you do. The simplest activities can be the funnest if you are doing it around friends. Just once again, State is all about time management. Balance the fun and serious, and you'll come out on top. If you made it to Texas State Finals, Congrats. You're officially apart of an elite group of kids that are the best in Texas. If you didn't, take what you're feeling now and turn that into drive for next year. Because I promise you, you want to be here at least once! See everybody in Abilene!!!!!!!!!!!

PERFORMANCE REPORT

By BROOKE

BOILES– ARIAT Performance Reporter

"R

odeo is a lot like life in general," Trevor Brazile brings to our attention, "just when you think you've got it all figured out, the tricky and the hard parts, The Lord humbles you and puts you right back into your place only to remind you all your talents truly belong and came from him." For many of you out there, your final Texas High School Rodeo is now behind you. Looking back over your career with us, whether it be all four years or just 1, I hope you can come to realize the impact the sport has made on you and carry away with you through life the lessons and memories each and every friend and competitor has helped you to take away. The legacy you leave behind isn't all about what you accomplished in the arena, although that's great, it's about much more than that. It's about the work; habits and accustoms you have made that can then carry over into the grander plan of your life. It's about the impact you have made on others and the glory you have brought to God. Some of our graduating seniors this year have spoke on behalf of the greatest thing they were able to take away from their experience as a

region X competitor. For Denton Halford, it has been the life long friends he has made and the ability to be able to compete alongside with so many of them. Casey Carol claims the memories and friendships she has made over the years have helped her to grow into the person she is today. Macy Ashford says, "The greatest thing I have taken away from high school rodeo is getting to show off my hard work in the rodeo arena by competing and getting rewarded by advancing to state. It shows me that all my hard work and all the hours in the practice pen are worth it!" Like any human being, we stumble and fall, seeing that has helped Tana Friar to acknowledged the family bond created over the years. "When one of us goes through something bad everyone else is there to help pick you back up and set you back on your feet. I love my rodeo family." States Tana. So, who better than those you are closest to take advice from? Take the advice many of the seniors will give, and cherish every moment you have your family and friends living this crazy beautiful life. Be able to walk away with not just something you are just proud of at the moment but walk away leaving a legacy you can look at in ten or so years and still be proud and thankful of. Region X is honored to have had so many amazing people be a part of the family over the years and as a whole are sad to see y'all leave. We wish each and everyone of you the best of luck with everything life has to bring!

A GREAT YEAR WITH TJHRA

W

hen you read this, the 2015 TJHRA State Finals will be complete and our State Champions will be crowned. This means that we will be taking a very competitive team to Nationals next month with the goal of bringing home another National Title. It seems like we were just kicking off our 2014-2015 rodeo season and I hope you realize what a great organization we have from the region level all the way to the state finals! Serving as the top level of competition for grades 6-8, TJHRA is the association to join for athletes who love their sport and value good competition. This summer, help us spread the word to more families about this great association! When you are at other events, make sure parents know that this is an option for their child and tell them a little more about TJHRA. Created in 2004, the NHSRA Junior High Division was established to bring the excitement of the sport to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders and to serve as a feeder system into the high school ranks of the Association. Today, all 47 states and provinces that belong to the NHSRA also produce a Junior High Division as well, with over 2,500 members in total now competing. Junior High Division students compete in a variety of events, including Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Goat Tying, Breakaway Roping, Tie-Down Roping, Chute Dogging, Team Roping, Ribbon Roping, and Junior Bull Riding. Next month, the "best of the best" from each state and province qualify for the National Junior High Finals Rodeo. Approximately 900 competitors show off their talents in the event and compete for thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes. Since the first Junior High Finals was held in 2005, Gallup, New Mexico has served as the host site. A Challenge for you. Put the statement below on a facebook post along with a picture of your TJHRA member competing to help us spread the word about TJHRA. Want to know how to join the TJHRA? Simply contact Anne Dollery or region secretary for more information. Go to www.tjhra.org or visit their facebook page, Texas Junior High Rodeo Association.

Texas Junior High Rodeo Association News Region IX Finishes Its Season with New All Around Champions

By McKenna pavelock– Region IX Jr. High Student Secretary

W

ith another season in the books, TJHRA Region IX cowboys and cowgirls are ready for state! The top ten winners in each event will advance to Gonzales, Texas this May to compete against the best Texas has to offer. Leading the way will be our all around cowboy and cowgirl, who not only finished the season off in the points lead but also will be leaving junior high competition behind for good as they move on to high school next year. Riley Webb was our All Around Cowboy this year, and he earned that title by finishing his season as Boys Goat Tying Champion, Reserve Champion Chute Dogger, Reserve Champion Calf Roper, third place team roper, and third place ribbon roper. Not many cowboys can say they finished their year with top three finishes in every event. When asked if he had a favorite event out of so many that he finished so well in, Webb simply said, “My favorite event out of all the other events would have to be tie down.” Aly Ghormley was not only the All Around Cowgirl, but finished out her eighth grade season with her third straight Region IX pole bending title. A former Texas Pole Bending Junior High Champion, Ghormley also finished as the Reserve Champion Girls Goat Tyer, fourth place breakaway roper, and ninth place ribbon runner. She said of all the events she competed in pole bending was her favorite. “My horse, Midget, is the one who has the heart to run and push. I am so lucky to even have the chance to even say he’s my horse,” she said. Success did not come without hard work. “I have worked hard this year practicing and getting ready for the rodeos,” Ghormley said. “I’m not going to lie to you. I had my ups and downs.”

42

Webb agreed, “Winning the all around was a big achievement in my life because it showed that all my hard work and determination had paid off.” Hard work aside, each champion credits their family for helping them achieve their success. “Without a doubt my parents have been the biggest help in my success, and I thank God for having such great parents to teach and have patience with me. Without them, I wouldn’t have had a chance in having a shot at winning the all around. I would also like to thank Jeff Yates for all the good advice and all the calves he had let me come rope and tie,” Webb said. Ghormley credited her family as well. “Hands down I give all the credit to my big sister, Meagan Elizabeth Ghormley. Meagan was the 2010 Texas High School Rodeo State and National Pole Bending Champion! She’s the one who got me interested in rodeo and any chance she can she is willing to help and teach me any lesson I might need.” Winning the all around titles did not come without its challenges, either. Webb said that one of the biggest challenges was Region IX’s double rodeos. “It was a little bit of a challenge to keep a positive attitude. If I had a bad first rodeo or did bad in an event, I just had to remember there were more chances to redeem myself.” For Ghormley, there were two major challenges this season. The first was not having her big sister around who was attending law school. “This is my first year to really be hands-on rodeoing without my sister to be there beside me the whole time. However, any chance she got, she would take time out of her busy schedule to help me. One other big challenge was aly ghormley balancing sports, rodeo and keeping my grades up, but I put it in my head what I wanted to achieve and it happened.” Webb and Ghormley are both outgoing eighth graders who made some special memories during their last junior high season. “When it came down to the last rodeo in the tie down, me and three of my friends were all within two points of each other. I was second to go and the first one missed. I was in the middle and came out and drew a good one and missed. My friend who was winning it wound up tying his calf down to win the whole deal. Even though I didn’t win, it was still a special memory because it was a great opportunity and experience to have with three of my close friends,” said Webb. “I have made so many memories,” Ghormley smiled, “but the one moment that I really cherish is at the last rodeo when it was my turn to go and stand in the arena during our eighth grade grand entry. I then realized this was my last junior high rodeo ever at Region IX. I will never forget that feeling.” Sixth grade girl Lacy Bruening and eighth grade boy Hagen Herring topped off their first year in Region IX by taking home the Rookie All Around Cowgirl and Rookie All Around Cowboy saddles. Sixth graders Savannah Jenson and Chance Little took home reserve all around buckles. “The advice I would give to upcoming sixth graders that want to win the all around is give every event 100% effort, and on the things that don’t go as planned, mentally remind yourself riley webb to stay positive and believe in yourself,” Webb explained. Ghormley added, “Figure out what you want to achieve and once you do that don’t let anything or anyone stop you from reaching the goal. Everyone is a champion. No matter what happens, and even if you fail your first time, get right back up and try again.” Reserve All Around Cowboy was Cash Enderli. Reserve All Around Cowgirl went to Kenzi Burleson. Champion Team Ropers were Blake Georg and Will Farris. Champion Ribbon Roper and Runner went to Gatlin Peck and Kenzi Burleson. Champion Girls Goat Tyer was Kenzi Burleson. Chute Dogging Champion was Cash Enderli. Wes Silar was our Calf Roping Champion. Charlie Fisher won both the Bull Riding and Steer Riding Champion saddles. Taylor Lawson won the Girls Breakaway Roping. William Lindsey took home the Champion Boys Breakaway title, and Georgia Lea Ray was the Barrel Racing Champion. Region IX officers were Aly Ghormley, President; Lyndie Dunn, Vice President; and McKenna Pavelock, Secretary.

Region X Junior High would like to thank the Circle T staff for doing a great job helping make the Region X rodeo season a success! Region X Junior High and Junior High State are both losing a great president this year!! Vicki Jarosek’s granddaughter, Kyleigh Powell, is moving up to high school this next year and Vicki is moving on too. She is an inspiration to everyone she meets. She is the toughtest woman I have ever met, but at the same time, I think she has the biggest heart, a heart of gold!! At every rodeo, she is always in the arena working harder than anyone. She loves each and every one of the kids and they all love her too! As she has said many times before, “she was there for the kids!” She will be sorely missed by everyone in Region X Junior High. Thank you Vicki for everything!!!
