ear Contestants, Parents, Directors and Officers: Congratulations and welcome to Abilene and the Texas High School Rodeo Finals. Qualifying for the state finals in Texas is an accomplishment in itself. Those many hours in the practice pen and at the region rodeos have paid off!! Now it is time to turn our focus on bringing home a State Championship title. Every year the state finals keep getting tougher and I am sure this year will be no exception. Texas is the reigning National Champion Team. We have won this honor twenty-four times and most recently the last five consecutive years. As with tradition, the National Team Trophy is now retired in Texas. A new trophy has been made and is up grabs, so let’s work together to bring home yet another National Title!! Due to the generous support of our sponsors both at the state and regional level, Texas High School Rodeo Association has awarded over $600,000.00 in scholarships in the last five years. I wish each of this year’s recipients much success in the next step in their education. Buckles and trophies will tarnish, but a good education will be yours forever. I hope you will join me in thanking our Board of Directors, the Abilene Host Committee and the Taylor County Expo Center for all the hard work and long hours they have put into making the State Finals a success. It is truly amazing the number of dedicated students, parents and volunteers we have in THSRA. It is this strong bond that by far makes THSRA the best! I thank you for allowing me to serve as your State President. I would like to wish everyone the best of luck this week. Have fun when it’s time to play, but stay focused when it’s time to compete. When the dust settles on the coliseum floor Saturday night, I know we will have the best from Texas going to Nationals!! Sincerely, Steve R. Dickey President

odeo was a huge passion from the first time I competed and has stuck with me ever since. In my years of competing, I have won 7 saddles and over 70 buckles in the rodeo arena. On January tenth 2010, I was on my way to Denver for the stock show. I was just driving through Sinclair, Wyoming when I looked down to check my map. As I looked up, I realized I had faded over a lane and was heading towards a metal beam on the side of the road. I tried to correct my truck, but I slid off the road and my truck turned completely sideways. I was ejected and hit a fence post on the side of the freeway. I knew I must have broken my back because I did not have any feeling in both of my legs. I underwent five hours of surgery, which left me with a whole lot of hardware in my back. The doctor’s prognosis was that I would not gain any feeling below my waist nor would I have any chance of regaining the use of my legs. Riding has been a part of me since I was three years old. Not riding just was not an option in the beginning. I told my mom I didn’t care if I needed to be “strapped” to my saddle, I would ride again. I convinced my therapists to let me bring a saddle into therapy so I could be in it. I told them my balance was better in the saddle than anywhere else. It took a few months before I could convince doctors and parents to allow me on my horse. I didn’t even have my back brace off before I got onto a horse again. It was

4 months after my wreck when I sat on the back of one of my horses again. After some time and figuring out how to stay in, I had straps hooked up to my saddle allowing me to ride. When I knew I could lope a circle fine, I set up the barrel pattern. When I could lope a barrel pattern, I wanted to add the speed. Once I knew I could do all that, I entered a race less than a week later. I have been running ever since, competing in barrel racing and rodeos around the Western United States.

Farm & Ranch Family The folks at McCoy’s Building Supply understand that it takes a lot of hard work and the whole family pitching in to get things done on a farm or ranch. That’s why we’d like to take some time out to salute Texas High School Rodeo Association families who are farmers and ranchers. In our monthly Farm & Ranch Family Spotlight, we’ll feature one family, sharing their story of how they work together as a family to make their farm or ranch successful. The spotlight will run for 10 months; each month will feature a different region. Each Regional McCoy’s Farm and Ranch Family will receive a $100 McCoy’s Gift Card. The McCoy’s Farm and Ranch Family of the Year will receive a $500 McCoy’s Gift Card and will be announced at the 2014 THSRA State Finals.

Congratulations to The Walkoviak Family by Ava Anderson

Congratulations is in store for some really special folks over in the Region IV area, and that would be none other than, Sidney, Melissa, Colby, and Caley Walkoviak, and Uncle Dale Walkoviak, all from Andreson, Texas. The Walkoviak's are a close-knit family that enjoys spending time together. whether it be leisure time or working together on their 2, 000 acre ranching and farming outfit. The two brothers, Sidney and Dale Walkoviak, own and manage Walkoviak's Hay LLC. The nature of their family business is raising cattle and shipping hay to feed stores. Their family partnership, has been in operation for around twentyfive years and going strong. This farm and ranch outfit, consists of a 1000 acres for hay farming, plus another additional, 1000 acres for cattle ranching, and runs roughly, 200 head of cattle. Since its inception, this has been a stream-lined, team operation with every family member pitching in and doing their part, including the siblings, once they became old enough to help out. Melissa not only fulfills her duties as a wife and mother, but she also oversees the book-keeping for the family-run operation, while their daughter, Caley also helps her mother out in this arena. Son Colby, helps his dad and uncle out with the cattle and in the hay field, and occasionally Caley gets to help out in the field as well. With a gleam in her eyes, Caley quips, “ I love to be put out in the field helping my dad and uncle when they're short handed. I like being around the tractors and learning how to operate the different tractors.” Helping out this way, Caley says , “It makes me feel that I'm a valuable contribution to our family business, whenever the need arises. However, my main duties, include overseeing the rest of the ranch work, such as the horses and feeding the livestock.”

Since, Caley is actively involved in THSRA, and competes in breakaway, barrel racing, and pole bending, she states, “I don't have much time to help out around the ranch as much I would like, but I certainly appreciate the many different sacrifices that my dad and other family members have made for us. My dad travels with me to my competitions and he's always taken time to support me and my brother in our rodeo endeavors.” “We love to rodeo together as a family and we have such fond memories of our times together, said Caley. However, Caley must admit that there's one memory that was not so fond at the time, and its forever etched in her mind, as she elaborates, “It's the time my brother had to fill in for my dad, and haul me to a rodeo. My brother picked on me the whole time! Thankfully, me and my horse ended up doing good, and now, believe it or not, I let my brother ride my horse.” “My brother, Colby competes in tie down, and he was also active in THSRA during his four years of high school. Plus he went on to win the National College Finals during his freshman and sophomore years of college”, said Caley, “Our family is very proud of him, and he is now completing, his fourth year of college rodeo.” The Walkoviak's are proud to be long-standing members of THSRA and they appreciate the positive impact this organization has had on their family life and with the rodeo youth. They also appreciate the support and contributions that McCoy's Building Supply has made to the youth rodeo associations.

PERFORMANCE REPORT

I Am Second

By Kennady Johnson

– ariat Performance Reporter

“T

he horse is made ready for the day of the battle, but the victory rests with the Lord.”Proverbs 21:31 As the days approaching the Texas High School Finals Rodeo are slimming down, things can get a little chaotic. It’s easy to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle of “state”, but we have to remember to keep our priorities in check. The entire year has lead up to this single week in Abilene, Texas. Many hours of practice, sacrifice, and hard work is what qualified you to get here, but we can’t forget about the Big Man Upstairs. Without Him, absolutely none of this would be possible. I believe Trevor Brazile said it best in his I Am Second interview, “I don’t serve God because of success,” he says. “Whether I win or lose, God just wants us to love Him.” One of the best ways to serve the Lord is to give Him thanks in both victories and losses. It’s really easy

to be appreciative in a win, but not as much so in a defeat. How we handle a loss says more about our character than winning ever will. It’s really hard because we invest so much of who we are into this sport we call rodeo. But, we just have to let go and let God’s will be done. Just like Proverbs 21:31 says “The horse is made ready for the day of the battle, but the victory rests with the Lord.” We need to show up prepared and ready to compete to the best of our ability, but keep in mind the victory, or the loss, is not ours, it’s the Lord’s. And he wants to be glorified in all situations. He has an awesome plan for your life that far exceeds anything you could ever dream of. So this 2014 Texas High School Finals Rodeo I challenge you to give all the glory to the Lord. Whether it turns out how you wanted it to or not. Sportsmanship is one of the biggest aspects of rodeo that separates us from other sports. Come prepared and ready to compete, but keep in mind the reason you are able to be there. Don’t let a defeat or a victory define who you are, let God.

T

he year has come to an end and the region finals are over and the seniors of Region II are on their way to make a future for themselves. Many have been a member for up to seven years while others have only been a member for a few. No matter what they all left some type of impact.

“It is a crazy and time consuming year and before you know it, it’s all over with,” Kynzie Rae McNeill, also a senior, enjoyed her last year but is ready to see what the future has in store for her. After graduating she plans on attending Texas Tech and keeping rodeo as a main part of her life. Hannah Neushwander and Kinsey Smith are also seniors who will be starting the next part of their lifes. walKer Kibbe They all have plans of going to college, starting a career, and hopefully always remember their high school experience as a member of region II. Walker Kibbe, another senior said, “My senior year was truly a blessing.” His plans for the future involve college rodeo and getting a degree to be a Game Warden and later on an AG teacher. Chason Williams, Christian Montoya, Payton Schrader, Brady Roberts, Garrett McCarthy, and Levi Ocha are some more senior boys who are on their way to bigger and better things. They as well have plans to have a bright future. As for the rest of this year, region II plans on making state a memorial one as we did last year. Last year there were nine members from region II who qualified for nationals. Being one of the smallest regions last year did not make region II any less. This year the region hopes to do the same. Region II would like to wish all of the seniors good luck with their future and also a good luck to everybody at state. KyNZie rae McNeill

By allisoN DaNley

– ariat Performance Reporter

s the school year and Texas High School Rodeo Association season draw to a close, many members find themselves worrying about final grades, scholarships, summer jobs, and the THSRA state finals. With so much going on, it’s easy to get caught up in focusing on ourselves. But when we put the emphasis on winning in the rodeo arena and life for our own sake, we’re losing perspective. God should take first place in our lives, and we should be second. Here is what Region III members mean when they say “I am second”:

“I think ‘I am second’ means knowing God gave us the greatest gift possible and because of that, we should put him above all things on earth.” - Catherine Murray

“I am second means that no matter what, we should always put God first. He is the reason we are able to do the things we love, including rodeo!” - Carli Maxwell

“It means that no matter what we want for ourselves, God’s will comes first. We should put God’s wants first and our own second.” - Shayna Johnson “I am second means that we should all put God first and our other priorities and hobbies second. It means we should give God the honor and glory for all things.” - Colton Brown

In Proverbs 21: 31, it says, “The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.” We can do anything and everything to win on our own accord, but all of our efforts are pointless if God is not first place in our lives. When we turn our plans and worries over to God, we stop holding ourselves back from the good things He has in store for us.

PERFORMANCE REPORT

Cutting, Queening and State 2014

By Kailey toal– ariat Performance Reporter

T

exas High School Rodeo Finals are here and everyone is extremely excited to see what will happen in each event. Two of these events that will be at the finals are cutting and queening. Rarely do we get to hear about these, so here is Region IV’s own reigning Champion girls cutter and queen’s contest representative, Chloé Costello, to tell us a little bit more about each event and her personal experiences with them. Chloé Costello is a 16 year old sophomore. She resides in Kaufman, Texas, with her parents David and Mindy Costello and sister, Caroline. Her dad is a veterinarian at the Kaufman Veterinary Center, and is the proprietor of Kaufman Metal Sales. Her mother is an extremely knowledgeable horsewoman that

MiNDy, caroliNe, DaViD aND chloÉ costello

has been instrumental in Chloe’s, and my own, rodeo career. Chloé attends Kaufman High School where she is on the honor roll, and is a member of the National Honor Society. For her extracurricular activities, she plays volleyball, is in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and is a highly active member of her church youth group. As for rodeo, Chloé has been competing at Region IV for 3 years. She got started after watching her sister because, “it looked like a lot of fun and she enjoyed it, so I thought I’d carry on the tradition.” Her favorite thing about our region is the involvement every kid has. Each competitor really gets involved in the production of the rodeo and helps anywhere they can. Her favorite event to compete in would be pole bending because, “my horse is great I just have to be able to keep up with her!” In addition to pole bending, she competes in barrel racing, and of course cutting, and queening. In cutting, the goal is to “separate, hopefully three cows from the herd, or two at minimum and try to keep them in the middle and work them as best your horse can, within the time limit of two minutes and thirty seconds.” You are judged for “the eye appeal of your horse and they give you points for keeping the cow in the middle, really big stops, and great turn backs, if they don’t swing out and come back to the cow just stop and pivot… and if you are staying in position with the cow. The cows head should always be on the horse’s neck or at your leg; you don’t want to get behind or above the cow.” The base score is a 70 and a great score would be a 74. She started to compete in this event as soon as it was offered to her through T.H.S.R.A in her freshman year. She got started because her, “mom is a big time cutter so she was pretty open to me getting started.” She is our reigning Region IV girls champion cutter and will be representing us in Abilene. In the queen’s competition, the contestant starts with an introduction and impromptu question before the judges. Then the contestants have modeling and speech that directly follows. There is also a written test, interview with the judges and horsemanship. Horsemanship would be Chloe’s favorite portion of the competition because, “I enjoy working with Chuck. He’s a good horse.” Chloé became interested in queening


after watching her friend and our former region queen, Haylee Rickman, compete, because “it looked like a lot of fun.” She also says she started after being persuaded in a feed store by Angela David. Angela is knowledgeable about queening and convinced Chloé to give it a whirl. In order to become our region queen, Chloé had to attend a queen’s competition in Andrus, Texas in December “to compete there with the other girls that were trying to qualify for state and represent their region.” When asked about what she is doing to prepare to represent us at state, Chloé replied, “What am I not doing to get ready for state!” Chloé and her mother have been working extremely hard to prepare for Abilene. Chloé has been “doing

a lot of lessons with my horse, really learning the pattern, getting my outfits together and studying up on the rulebook.” She has also been going and speaking at various places like the Garden Club, Historical Society and Lions Club to promote the sport of rodeo and work on her speaking skills and speech. Chloé Costello has worked hard and she will definitely represent us well in the cutting and queening competition at state this year. Good luck to Chloé and everyone else representing Region IV this year at the Texas State High School Rodeo Finals. Have fun, be safe and show everyone that it really is, “bigger in Texas, and better at Region IV!”

wiseNer – ariat Performance Reporter

hen you think of Texas High School Rodeo Association you think of each event that is preformed on the arena floor. From the rough stock event to the speed events THSRA does it all, but what most don’t know is about the event that doesn’t involve a horse or any animal. Recently added in 2010 to the THSRA and TJHRA is a shooting division. This shooting division consists of trap shooting and light rifle shooting. Trapshooting is one of the three major disciplines of competitive clay pigeon shooting (shotgun shooting at clay targets). While light rifle shooting is shots made from various distances. Shooting members receive all the benefits of being a member of the Texas High School Rodeo Association: buckles to the top 4, high school gives award and money to first place in events, chance to compete at National

Finals and the seniors can apply for thousands in scholarships given each year. This year Region V is taking to Abilene some tough competitors in the shooting division. Region V sophomore Corley Sirman will compete again in the trap for his second year at state. Last year Corley was the Texas High Rodeo Champion Trap shooting and a national qualifier. He plans to go into the competitions with high expectations to make it further than last year. Another competitor is Logan Smith, senior from Alto, TX. Not only can he rope, but is an avid shooter as well. Hunting is an enjoyable past time for Logan and there is no better was to show off than to compete in the trap shooting. Caleb Cogbill another cowboy from Region V will compete this year in trap for the first time. Trap shooting is a sport of a lifetime that can be a great way to show off hand-eye motion. Region V contestant Hunter Kocian only competes in the shooting division. Being brought up around hunting and shooting clays his whole life; he will go to state as a tough competitor. Hunter enjoys all types of hunting and there isn’t much he hasn’t hunted for. As his first year in Region V, hunter is excited to compete at state in Trap. He will head to Abilene and not only compete against high school students all over the state of Texas, but his own family, Kallie Wisener. Kallie is a competitor of Region V in the barrels and poles as well as shooting. Kallie was also brought up around hunting and shooting skeet and plans to make is a hobby for the rest of her life. Hunter and Kallie practice together with the help of their coach Chuck Griffith, owner of Lufkin Ranch and Rodeo, who gave them both the passion and love for the game of shooting. With many long hours of practice they both will go into state with only expectations to do their best and have fun. With hard work from each contestant from Region V, the shooting contestants work just as hard. The shooting will be held in Abilene at the Callahan County shooting range on June 8th. Region V can do it all, that’s why they say Region V is the biggest, the baddest, and the best region in the state of Texas! Remember as you go into state and head to nationals that Gods word says “When you’ve done everything you can do, that’s when God will step in and do what you can’t do.” 2 Corinthians 12:10.

PERFORMANCE REPORT

Being Grateful

By Kalli DaVis

– ariat Performance Reporter

his is the final time some of us will compete at the THSRA State Finals in Abilene. Wow, these past four years have been one heck of a ride. I wouldn’t trade these experiences for anything! Whether you won State or you had the worst rodeo of your life, cherish the memories and be grateful for the opportunities you have been fortunate to enjoy. I know in my four years I have acquired so much from being a member of the THSRA. I can only hope each and every one of you take as much from high school rodeo as I have. I have learned to be a leader, a member, a friend, and a mentor. It has given me the opportunity to make memories I will cherish forever and I am so grateful.

We didn’t get here by ourselves. We had the support and love of family, friends and God. We had to mature in this game in order to improve and succeed. Without this support, we would have never made it this far. Thank your parents for the countless hours they spent with you this watching you grow as a competitor, the exhausting drives from rodeo to rodeo, and the uplifting words of encouragement, they always shared with you, regardless of the circumstances. We don’t compete alone in this great sport we love, we share our time with our animal companions. Be grateful for these amazing animals. Remember they love the sport just as much as you. From barrel and roping horses giving their all, to the bulls wanting to beat you out, rodeo would be nothing without the animals. Lastly, but certainly not least, be grateful for God and the opportunities he has given you in life. The opportunity to be a member of a great association that works to preserve western heritage, and promote the sport we love so much. Thank God for this season and his plans for your life, because without him our dreams will not come to pass. He

is with you every step of the way, even when you stumble! I am truly grateful for these experiences, and the awesome life I live. I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know many of you, and I can’t wait to see where the future takes us all. Congratulations to every competitor that left their mark in Abilene this year, and to those going to Nationals, best of luck and safe travels!

PERFORMANCE REPORT Saying Goodbye Isn't Easy:

senior class of 2014

f

By syDNey Golbow

– ariat Performance Reporter

our years have passed and it’s time to say goodbye to the class of 2014. Many people are finding it hard to say goodbye to these kids because of what role models they have been to the underclassmen. Aside from this sadness, these 32 seniors are ready to start a new chapter in their lives. The seniors have have outstanding accomplishments both academically and rodeo wise. loni kay lester, loryn piersol, and Will Byler were all accepted to Sam Houston State University. kary Ann keaton will be attending Texas A&M University and Ashley ortamond will be a

alise DriGGers

UTSA Roadrunner in the fall. lauren Bane will be attending Tarleton State University on a rodeo scholarship. Being accepted to college isn’t the only reason why these seniors are spectacular. A lot of our seniors have been awarded a plethora of scholarships as well. Reid halbert racked up a $10,000 scholarship from the San Antonio Youth Rodeo in February. Loni Kay Lester was awarded a scholarship from the Texas Rodeo Cowboys Hall of Fame. Rhett sbrusch received the Brazoria County Cattlemen’s Association scholarship. Many of our senior members also received the Region VII scholarship as well as the Blake Sandel scholarship that is awarded each year at our annual awards banquet. As you can see most of these seniors have left an impact on many of our lives both inside and outside of the arena. Although it’s never easy to say goodbye, we hope the best for all of you in the future. You have officially left your mark in our region and it’s time to move on to the next chapter of your life. Remember that today is the first day of the rest of your life. Whether you choose to continue to rodeo or not, remember the lessons you’ve learned and the friendships you’ve established. It has been a pleasure being able to rodeo with best seniors in the state and we hope you all enjoy this next chapter.

ubba Benight, THSRA Executive Board Director and Region VI President, is a native Texan and resides on a ranch outside of Bastrop, Texas with his family; Wife, Natalie, Daughters Peyton and Bailey and son Brody. While in high school Bubba was an active member the Texas High School Rodeo Association, he competed in the Calf roping, Steer wrestling, and Team roping. He was always considered a very competitive and accomplished young cowboy. He won numerous saddles and buckles during his Youth rodeo years. He took his rodeo career to the next step and won his own share in the Pro-rodeo circuit as well as the CPRA. He qualified numerous times for the CPRA finals. Following in their father’s footsteps, all of Bubba's children have grown up competing in both Junior and High School Rodeos within the THSRA, as well as other Youth Rodeo Organizations. Peyton his oldest daughter is attending Texas A&M University, in College Station. Peyton competed in TJHRA and THSRA from her 6th grade year until her Senior year, making it to the state finals more than once! Bailey, a freshman at Smithville High School is competing her first year of High school rodeo after three years of success in the Jr. High division. Brody is just now a 6th grader and getting his turn to join the THSRA/ TJHRA family. He has his eyes on the State finals! Bubba's favorite thing about high school rodeo is the lasting friendships that are made, and being around the kids who love the sport just as he did and still does today! Bubba always has a kind and encouraging word to offer competitors. You will often see Bubba working the barrier, or pushing calves in the roping boxes, helping girls get their “crazy”

Bubba Benight by Kalli Davis

speed event horses in the arena, and hazing at a rodeo event. Bubba and his wife Natalie are definitely an essential aspect to Region VI, or any other rodeo organization they are affiliated with. There is never a rodeo you won't see Bubba working, or hear Natalie on the Microphone, either announcing times or trying to summons people to set barrels, poles or just work the gate! The Bennight’s are always willing to help at a rodeo in order to have it run smooth and a quickly as possible. His favorite High school rodeo memory is hazing for last year’s State Champion Steer Wrestler, and family friend, Cade Goodman. When looking into the future, Bubba would like to see the High school rodeo keep doing what they are doing, and continue to grow. He would like to see competitors receive as many prizes and scholarships as possible Bubba, like many other people, feel the biggest challenges rodeo families face are the financial expenses, the ability to afford to haul and pay the fees required. Bubba's advice for all parents and members, is to become involved and help out! Bubba, Thank you for all you do, for the kids and the families! We are so proud and grateful to have you as our Executive Board Director! Love Region VI!

PERFORMANCE REPORT

Bring the Heat

By Katie

whitaKer – ariat Performance Reporter

egion eight is bringing the heat this year! The great eight has always been a tough region, in many areas. We have sent several past and present competitors to state in the past few years. Last year region eight brought home a state title and sent six contestants to nationals last year. In the years past region eight has come to be known as one of the toughest regions for barrel racing. Every year girls break records and step up the game. In 2010, 2011, and 2012 region eight brought home the barrel racing state title. Last year we also sent two girls (Sissy Winn and Shelby Herrmann) to Wyoming in barrels as well. Our southern region we call home, has won several state titles and sent several to nationals, but this year we hope to even bring home not only a state title, but also a national title. The potential to win here at region eight is very high. Not only in ability, but also in attitude and spirit. The biggest part of each cowboy and cowgirls summer is making the trip to Abilene to compete at a high level and see

there old friends. However, the experience is awesome, a few of us will be making our last trip to state finals, and saying a sad farewell to the Taylor Expo Center. We all know how sweltering hot Abilene can be in the summer, and for those of you that will be attending their very first state finals, be warned; be ready to sweat! Many families and competitors have gotten rather creative in creating a cool way to relax on the grounds. Blow-up pools, fans, shade cover, even the little fans with the spray bottle attached. Lets see if anyone can come up with another new idea this year. Another way to entertain oneself while at state during their off time is to head over to Primetime. Go carts, pool, bowling, an arcade, and much more. It is definitely a must do. Not only is the weather hot, but so are our region members. They will be tearing up the arena and turning and burning. This year region eight will be coming in hot and bringing home state titles and maybe even national titles. What a wonderful state finals we have ahead of us and what a wonderful year it has been. As my last article, I want to say thank you to region eight and good luck to all the competitors. I know it will be an awesome year. Look out state, region eight is bringing the heat!

I would also like to say thank you to Region 9 for giving me the opportunity to write my Region. This is something that has been truly eye opening. I hope for the next person who steps up as the Region 9 Extreme Team Reporter represents the Region well and learns as from this privilege as I have. Good luck in your preparations for State Finals in Abilene, TX June 6-14. Region 9 competitors, may the odds be ever in your favor.

PERFORMANCE REPORT

Enjoy

the

Journey

By brooKe

boiles– ariat Performance Reporter

s this year has come to an end and we began to focus merely on other things outside of high school rodeo for the summer, remember that no one is going to make your dreams come true for you. It is your job everyday to wake up and work towards the desires that are deepest in your heart, and to enjoy every step of the journey rather than wishing you were already where you want to end up. Don't dwell on the past or the year we are leaving behind. Keep moving forward and making the days count. Learn from the mistakes you have made and gather the lessons up to help you lunge into your goals. One thing to hold into are the memories of our days in region X. When asking a few contestants what their favorite moment of the 20132014 year was they answered like so; Samantha Chick stated "I realize I have been extremely blessed with great horses and amazing support throughout the year. My most memorable moment would have to be my third consecutive all around win. My dad and I set a goal to win the all around all four years of high school and I hope I'm fortunate enough to reach my goal next year." For Meagan Lott the most memorable memory of the year was, as she states, "the traditional late trips to IHOP

A

after the team roping jackpot with the huge region X crew!" It must be said that some great bonding took place over chocolate milk and pancakes! Mikey Owens a graduating senior claimed, "me and my partner went into the year knowing we would have to work extremely hard to make it to state considering he started roping 3 weeks before the first rodeo so making state is unforgettable." Another senior, Jordy Wright states, "Being in Region X has been a blast throughout the years. My favorite part about going to region rodeos, besides competing, is seeing all of my friends. There has never been a dull moment. My family and friends have been there to support me the whole way, and I definitely couldn't have done this without any of them." Both seniors Mikey and Jordy have been accepted to Tarleton State University where they will carry on their love for rodeo on the rodeo team. We would like to wish all of those graduating the best of luck in life and making their dreams come true. Congratulations to the 2014 class of seniors: Bailey Barnard, Lydia Bierschwale, Kasper Backwell, Jacob Butler, Kelsay Crawford, Parker Cudd, Trinton Downing, Weston Gloff, Bradley Greenhaw, Tallen Halliday, Maverick Harper, Trevor Hedeman, Ryann Jameson, Dustin Jones, Case Jones, Case Jones, Wyatt Lentschke, Sara McCarty, Augie Noble, Mike Owens, Parker Patterson, Morgan Pounders, Madison Rampy, Mica Rucker, Morgan Selman, Wyatt Shoaf, Reagan Uptmore, Katy Warren, Makenle Worley, Jordy Wright, and Shelby Zizzo. It has been an honor for Region X to watch all of you grow up and prosper throughout the years. God bless everyone and the class of 2014!


JAKE HUGHES by Ava Anderson

The Whataburger Whatakid is selected due to their ability to excel both in and out of the rodeo arena. Whataburger is proud to recognize a THSRA member from each of the ten regions who truly upholds the title “Whatakid!” One of the nominees will be chosen at the State Final Rodeo in June as the Whatakid of the Year. In recognition of this accomplishment they will receive free Whataburgers for an entire year!

"Hard Work Beats Talent, When Talent Doesn't Work Hard"...

Ashlyn "Jake" Hughes is an outgoing eighteen-year old, young lady from Dew, Texas. She introduces herself by saying, “My name is Jake Hughes and that's what I go by!” She needs no other introduction, as I let her continue, “Jake is my real name and I was named after my great uncle. He was a man that never got married so he never had kids. My mom helped take care of Uncle Jake after he was diagnosed with cancer. Me and my uncle were the very best of friends, until he passed. I hope and pray that I can be as 'good a person' as he was, and remembered in a way that he is!” This delightful young lady, is very family-oriented and she definitely has her priorities in order, as she goes on to state, “My heros' in proper order, is the good Lord above, and then my parents.” Over the years, Jake has strived to live by the principles found in the Word of God, and by the standards that she has been taught at home and instilled into her by her family. Ms. Hughes continues to give honor where honor is due, by stating, “My dad, mom and step-dad, have all pushed me to be the best person that I can be. My dad has taught me that even the best can miss it at times, but they learn from it and move on. Dad has also taught me that there is a good side to everything. My mom has taught me 'to give it my all, no matter what', and to always strive to lift people up. My step-dad has taught me that when the going gets 'tuff' ya' gotta grit your teeth and get after it! Each one of these people has influenced Jake's life in their own special way, and she says, “My parents have been my role models as far back, as I can remember, and will always, remain so!.”

A favorite motto instilled into her, “Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard!”.Jake has strived to work hard at everything she has put her hands to, including her spiritual life, home life, academics and extracurricular activities. She is an 11th grader this year, and an A & B Honor Roll student, attending Fairfield High School in Fairfield, Texas. Her favorite subject is English, and her favorite teacher, is Mr. Wright, the history and theater teacher. Jake is active in the Beta club and in a number of other school clubs, organizations and sports activities. During her freshmen year, she had a stint playing volleyball and was on the JV team, but she ended up hurting her knee. She said, “Then I came to a crossroads where I had to choose between rodeo and volleyball, and of course it was not hard to choose, I chose rodeo!” She is also involved in FFA , and serves on the horse judging team. What does she enjoy during her spare time, I also really like taking pictures, it's just something that I have kind of picked up and really enjoy!”, said Jake. An average school day for Jake, consists of attending school until 3:30 pm, then arriving home and saddling up her young horse and working and riding the rodeo horses, plus roping a pen full of calves. Jake has a favorite companion that accompanies her, “I use my dog named Region IX, whenever we need any of our cows or calves penned. I have fond memories of getting my dog at my first Region IX, Jr. High rodeo event. Region knows how to sit, shake and play dead and he is a wonderful companion.” She went on to comment that during the summer months that she likes to change up her routine a bit, and usually saddles the young horses in the morning, but waits until the evening hours, to rope and ride, and to work all the other horses, or participate in other events. Jake is a true equestrian champion and she has three main rodeo horses that make up her winning team. She shares that Hank, a sorrel horse with two white dots on his head, has been her main horse since she was eight years old. She goes on to share, “I started off roping calves, tying goats, and running barrels and poles with Hank, but now I just run poles on him”, and then she said, “Hank won't let anybody but me and my mom and my little sister ride him.” Ms. Hughes awards and accomplishments, include being named Equestrian of the Year, and she especially enjoys, helping the youth residing in the county areas, with their rodeo and animal projects. Her background, qualifications and other distinquishments certainly, make her a wonderful role model to the youth, as she further shares, “I've been riding since I was 2 years old and have been in the rodeo arean ever since then!” Jake talks of how she went on to compete at many different levels, starting with the Little Britches Rodeo, and on to CTYRA, TYRRA, ETYRA, and graduating up to the junior high, and high school levels of rodeo competitions, plus being an active competitor and member of THSRA. Her years of rodeo, have awarded her with seven saddles, and she's won over seventy plus, belt buckles during her rodeo tenure! Her favorite event is breakaway. Her favorite memory, she says, “Is when I roped a 2.0 at the Little Britches rodeo in Groesbeck Texas!” Fast forward to the future, and she now has her eyes on the college rodeo circuit. “College wise, I'm really wanting to attend Sam Houston State and rodeo with that champion team. Job wise, I want to be a horse chiropractor, so that I can take my work with me wherever I go, and wherever the trial of life leads me!” Congratulations to Ashlyn “Jake” Hughes, WHATAKID to be saluted and remembered! I have no doubt, that she will be remembered for her many good works and achievements,and with a humble heart she says,“Thank you everyone, for nominating me for this special recognition...this all means alot to me!"

s you are reading this, our finals will be over and we will have our new Texas Junior High National Team! This year has gone so fast but has been a great one! Junior High just keeps getting better and better…..so tell all your friends they need to be a part of our Association! Junior High National team will make history this year in being the first year in Des Moines, IA. This is going to be a first for many things; the National office will be putting the finals on, instead of a host city handling arrangements. Make sure you pack all the “Texas” items you can (decorate your camping area; decorate your golf cart…etc). We will not be able to decorate our seating area, so let’s make sure they know Texas is there outside! Don’t forget you will need current coggins and health papers to check in at Nationals. Please plan your trip giving you plenty of time to get to Des Moines, they will not let you check in late. I look forward to seeing you all at the National finals and cheer each and everyone on! Texas is ready to pick up the trophy four years in a row! Sunday after the meeting we will have a Texas cookout at the trailers to kick things off and let everyone meet each other. Congratulations to you all! If you need to get in contact with me, do not hesitate to contact me…. Anne Dollery Texas Junior High Rodeo Association State Secretary P.O.

A Great Year for Region IX!

H

By Jessica Garrett– TJHRA Reg XI President

ere in region 9 we have had a great year!! The competition was tough and we had some close races for

riley webb

the year end winners and all-around cowboy and cowgirl. Our all-around cowboy winner was Riley Webb. He had the lead going into the finals but by all means didn’t have it cinched up! He had two tough cowboys right behind him of which were both his good friends. Even though the competition got tough they never stopped pulling for each other. It came down to the last event of the evening at the region finals. Winning all-around was not the easiest thing but however he accomplished it. He would like to thank his dad for helping him in Darcy Taylor the arena and his mom for being “his secretary”. When asked what helped him the most this year he said “I would like to thank God for blessing me with my faith, health, and good horses to ride.” This is Riley’s second year of TJHRA and has qualified for the finals in Gonzales both years. We hope that he has a great finals. “I always put God first and everything else seems to fall in place” says Riley. Our All-around cowgirl was Darcy Taylor. Darcy’s plan to win the all-around title “was trying to make every run my best and trying to stay on top”. The race for allaround cowgirl was a tight race and included many close friends, as well. But when the dust all settled Darcy earned the top spot as our all-around cowgirl. Darcy loves volleyball, rodeo and being with her friends and family. Darcy would like to thank her parents for supporting her to accomplish what and where she is today. We hope she too has a great finals.

t the Region Finals in March 2014, Region X went all out with Royal Purple decorations, jackets with purple embroidery for all of the Region X 2013-2014 participants, and awesome prizes for everyone who finished in the top ten in each event. The Finals Party was hosted by the parents of the Region. They went all out with fancy decorations, a Mexican food buffet that rocked, and of course all the awards. The prizes ranged from custom knives to belt buckles to saddles. There were awesome saddle blankets, headstalls, breast collars and more. One of the unusual things about Region X is each person in the top ten in each event picks their prize, starting with second place and moving up all the way to tenth taking the last prize for that event. First place in each event, of course, receives a really nice custom made trophy saddle. The All-Around Boy and Girl each also receive an awesome saddle. Pictured are the All-Around Boy, Garett Chick, and the All-Around Girl, Lexie Russell, with their saddles. And new for this year, all of the State

Qualifiers will receive a Cinch purple western shirt with their name and Region X embroidered on it, so everyone will recognize the Region X riders at State and at Nationals this season. Region X Junior High (and the high school division as well) will be moving back to the Circle T Arena in Hamilton for the 2014-2015 rodeo season. As the summer progresses into fall, many of the Region X Junior High competitors will be moving on up to High School Rodeo. We wish them the best of luck at State and, for some hopefully, at Nationals and in their future rodeo careers. Rock on!
