ith hundreds of our families getting ready to pack up their horse trailers and head to Gonzales this month, we thought that you would like to know local events going on and where to shop and eat while visiting this beautiful and historical part of Texas. With a whole week to explore the area here is a great look at local businesses that would love for you to visit them while you are in town. Don't be afraid to venture out of Gonzales and visit the charming towns of Shiner and Yoakum because they all have great things to experience too!

Information Courtesey of the City of Gonzales

onzales is one of the earliest Anglo-American settlements in Texas, the first west of the Colorado River. It was established by Empresario Green DeWitt as the capital of his colony in August 1825. DeWitt named the community for Rafael Gonzáles, governor of Coahuila y Tejas. The 49 original blocks and seven public squares laid out in the shape of a Greek cross withstood the test of time and form the first Texas History Museum District. Gonzales is most famous because it was the site of the first skirmish of the Texas Revolution. In 1831, the Mexican government gave the settlers a small cannon for protection against Indian attacks. At the outbreak of settler hostilities, a contingent of Mexican soldiers was sent from San Antonio to retrieve the cannon. On 2 October 1835, Texians under the command of John H. Moore confronted them. The Texans had fashioned a flag with the words “Come and take it”. The Texans successfully resisted the federal troops in what became known as the Battle of Gonzales. Gonzales later contributed thirty-two men from the Gonzales Ranging Company to the illfated defense of the Alamo. It was to Gonzales that Susanna Dickinson, widow of one of the Alamo defenders, and Joe, the slave of William B. Travis, fled with news of the Alamo massacre. General Sam Houston was here organizing the Texas army and anticipated the town would be the next target of General Antonio López de Santa Anna and the Mexican army. He had the town burned and ordered a retreat, thus precipitating the Runaway Scrape. If you go visit the Gonzales Memorial Museum which serves a memorial to these 32 men you will see actual artifacts from this period in time. The real Come and Take It cannon is located in the museum to see up close and you can even touch it! Beautiful building full of Texas history and well worth a visit. Some of the historical sites you may want to visit are the Old Jail Museum which is a hidden treat. Located across from the fire station, the old Jailhouse staff will take you on a free personal tour of the first and second floors and allow you inside the jail cells. The walls have graffiti from former prisonsers. There is a gallows like the original that was in there on the second floor. Worth a visit and free!

8

There is a driving tour with signs located around the town. The tour goes in a loop and you can enter at any point so you will not miss any of the historical focus points of the town. The tour is free and you can download an app from Itunes with narration. It is called TOUR GONZALES. There are many historical homes and buildings that have been beautifully maintained and will take you back in time. This year the JB Wells facility has added a convention expo center where approximately 60 booths will be located. These booths will include boutique style shopping and agriculture and equine products. There is something for everyone so don’t miss out. The expo center is air conditioned so it will be a popular hangout in between performances. The Champion’s Café will also be located in the expo center and will have an area to buy snacks and food. Each day a different region will be providing food and snacks to sell. All proceeds will benefit the TJHRA national team for expenses when traveling to nationals. This will be great place to hang out and meet new friends from all across the state.

Star Struck Region II R

By BLISS BOLTON – Performance Reporter

egion II undoubtedly has talented rodeo athletes who have come and gone and have had success at all levels in and out of the rodeo arena, but now one of our very own Region II alumni has found himself in the Hollywood limelight. There has been much buzz within the rodeo community, and especially in Region II, about former Region II member and professional bull rider, Bonner Bolton.

Bolton was injured while riding at a PBR event in Chicago in January of 2016. Bolton, who was winning the event going into the second round, was injured after riding his second bull. After Bolton made a qualified ride on his bull, he was thrown in the air and landed head first in the arena dirt resulting in him sustaining a broken C2 vertebrae in his neck. Leaving the arena, Bolton was paralyzed from the neck down and feared for his life. Miraculously, over the next few days he regained all of the feeling in his body. After months of recovery, therapy, and healing, he was told he would never be able to ride bulls again. This was a devastating blow for Bolton. However, not long after he was given this dif-


ficult news, he was picked up by one of the world’s leading modeling agencies, IMG Models. After signing with IMG, Bolton was provided with multiple modeling jobs before receiving the opportunity this year to compete on ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars. Bolton made his debut in the dancing competition performing a cha cha on March 20, 2017 alongside his partner Sharna Burgess, a veteran DWTS pro, having competed in eight seasons of the show. Bolton has been excited to be back to some sort of competition. He has worked very hard to pick up the choreography and perform his dances well. He is doing great in the competition so far, and Region II is certainly proud. Bolton is dancing next to some pretty big names such as Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, David Ross of the Chicago Cubs, and Normani Kordei from Fifth Harmony. He has some stiff competition, but no doubt he will rise to the occasion. Bonner Bolton is a wonderful ambassador for the sport of rodeo and Region II, and I am so proud of him as his little sister! Make sure to check out more about Bolton’s story on all of his social media accounts. You can watch Dancing with the Stars on ABC Mondays at 7:00 central and vote on the phone and online. Vote for Bonner by calling 1-800-868-3401 or go to http://dwtsvote.abc. go.com/. Find him on Twitter and Instagram at bonner_bolton and on Facebook under Bonner Bolton. Whether it be under the bright lights of Hollywood or the bright lights of the rodeo arena, good luck Region II, in all that you do.

P E RF O RM A N C E R E P O RT 5 Ways to Prepare Young Athletes for Success in Sports and in Life Written on February 27, 2013 at 2:41 pm, by Eric Cressey

By BRITTANY GATES

H

– Performance Reporter

ere are some examples of suggestions on strategies I’ve seen employed by parents who have young athletes who are well-mannered and successful while enjoying sports – from little league to the Big Leagues. 1. Never overreact - or underreact. Sports are games, and games are supposed to be fun. If a kid works his butt off, but the outcome isn’t what he’d hoped for, you should talk about the value in the process rather than dwelling on the target destination he didn’t reach. Crack jokes to lighten the mood, and then try to find a learning experience in losing, as opposed to just reaming a kid out and then sitting in silence for the rest of the ride home. In my experience, parents and coaches who overreact and take the fun out of the game are the single most common reason kids give up a sport. Underreacting can be equally problematic. The process is definitely more important than the destination, but if a kid doesn’t take the process seriously, he should hear about it – just like if he ignores his homework or refuses to take out the trash. If he is rude to a coach or umpire, doesn’t hustle, shows up late to practice, or poorly handles something that is 100% within his control, he should be disciplined for it. Blindly sid-

ing with your kid when he misbehaves or is lazy sets a very dangerous precedent, but it also puts a coach in a very uncomfortable situation of having to discipline your kid because you haven’t. 2. Watch competition, but not practice. By all means, go to game and cheer kids on, but don’t stick around to watch practice. As an added bonus, you avoid the possibility of a coach looking over his shoulder the whole time as he wonders whether you’re second-guessing him. Every coach dreads the parent who wants to live vicariously through his kid, so the more space you give your child, the less likely you are to be perceived like that. 3. Have your kid play multiple sports. We’ve been telling folks for years now that early sports specialization doesn’t work as well as people think. Kids are more likely to get injured, and they miss out on a wellrounded sports experience that fosters better athleticism and social interactions over the long haul. However, to supplement this assertion, I’d encourage you to check out this fantastic post from Elsbeth Vaino:Does Early Specialization Help? Elsbeth found that 82% of the top athletes from the four major sports in the U.S. actually played multiple sports. Yes, you read that right – and it is verified by my experience with hundreds of professional athletes each year. Here's a great interview with Blake Griffin that Elsbeth posted: 4. Encourage play, not always practice/competition. Even when the sport in question remains constant, play is different than practice, as it is far less regimented, and there is far more quality movement because there are fewer stoppages for teaching. It also presents a far richer proprioceptive environment and greater opportunity for social development. Kids need to play more – and in a variety of disciplines. Adolescent athletes need practice. Kids don’t need more competition, though; our modern athletic society already plenty of that. 5. Don’t allow kids to get desensitized to losing. With more and more tournaments being round robin and double elimination formats, I think we have a generation of kids who has been desensitized to losing. It’s even worse when you have kids who play on multiple teams, as losing for Team A doesn’t matter because Team B has a game less than 24 hours later. Losing is part of life, but that doesn’t mean that we should be satisfied with it. It should motivate us to work harder so that it doesn’t happen again. This doesn’t just apply to sports, either; it applies to life. As a business owner, I don’t ever plan to hire someone who is comfortable with sucking. As a little example, my sophomore year of high school, I lost a tennis match in the state singles qualifier to a kid I should have beaten 100% of the time. It was an all-day event with several rounds on a hot day in May, and I cramped up badly in the third set of the match because I hadn’t hydrated well. That loss stung for months – but you can bet that I never forget to bring enough fluids to matches ever again. I beat the guy easily in straight sets the following year, too. Losing sucks, but it teaches you lessons. No Region Article Submitted

CARLY STAGGS OF REGION IX

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!

by Catelyn Felts

Congratulations to the Whatakid of the Month, Carly Staggs! The seventeen-year-old junior competes in the pole bending, barrel racing, goat tying, breakaway roping, and ropes on the heel side in the team roping. While she might be an all around cowgirl, she claims the pole bending as her favorite event. Her equine partner for the poles (and barrels) goes by the name of Lulu, and while the two of them share quite a few memories, Carly’s favorite is the time she and Lulu ran their first 19-second pole run. She said she is also pretty fond of the memory she has of winning the pole bending in the 2017 San Antonio Youth Rodeo. Carly has been a member of the Texas High School Rodeo Association for three years now. She said her favorite part of the organization is how everyone is supportive and treats each other like family. She also explained how she enjoys the competition on the regional and state levels. “I love how everyone is competitive but also willing to help each other,” Carly said. “Rodeo also gives me more responsibilities like taking care of my horses and practicing for all of my events.” Though she does not partake in extracurricular activities through her school due to the time she dedicates to

rodeo, she served as her barrel racing director all three years of her junior high career, and has been the pole bending director all three years of her high school career. She was the Rookie All Around Cowgirl for Region 9 her freshmen year of high school rodeo as well as the reserve champion barrel racer and pole bending champion. Her sophomore year she won the Reserve all around and pole bending champion, and she won the pole bending for her region this year. While she is no stranger to the winner’s circle, she has had to sacrifice extracurricular activities and the occasional hangout with friends that might interfere with her practices. It does not seem to bother her too much though as she claims her life motto to be “always have fun and enjoy the things you are blessed with.” She explained how even though she misses hanging out with her friends the love she has for the sport outweighs the sacrifices she has had to make. Carly’s dreams, successes and sacrifices are accompanied by a strong support system. “My mom is my hero and someone I look up to,” Carly said. “She is the biggest supporter of my life.” In the future Carly plans to attend a junior college for two years in order to carry out her rodeo career on the collegiate level, and then she plans to transfer to Sam Houston State University in hopes of obtaining a nursing degree. “Being picked for the Whatakid of the month is very rewarding,” Carly said. “Getting recognized for my hard work and dedication to my region makes me proud. I’m very proud of myself and so blessed my region presented me this year’s Whatakid.”

WINDING DOWN AND FIRING UP By TAYLIN ANTONICK – Performance Reporter

W

hat a year it has been! Here in the BIGGEST, BADDEST, and BEST region in the state of Texas, we made a number of memories, friends, and even more smoking runs. In fact, I can already tell that state finals are going to be a great week for many of our rodeo athletes. This month, we ended the year in the arena

where we’ve grown and learned, the Nacogdoches Expo Center. The seniors spent their last weekend celebrating a wonderful journey throughout high school, with a senior banquet, ceremony, and send off. We saw the average change the year end points in many events, and more importantly, we thanked our parents and mentors for giving us the ability to share yet another year in the saddle. So, Region V, here’s to you! Being a senior myself, this year has held many “lasts”. On behalf of my friends, I believe it is safe to say that Texas and Region V High School Rodeo gave us a family to look forward to seeing each weekend. Before some of the last runs in our high school careers, we congregated together to celebrate each other’s success and look toward the future. At the senior banquet, many scholarships were given to the kids, including the high point individual, Helena Collmorgen. Mrs. Angie Key and Mr. Jordan Wisener left the senior class with words of wisdom and encouragement, to draw from when the road gets long and times get tough. Mrs. Angie reminded us that actions have consequences, and it is better to put in the hard work now so we do not have to suffer negative side effects later. Mr. Wisener gave us hope for the future, reminding us that our peak does not have to be high school. We can be as happy or talented as we put our mind to. Mr. Gene Arceneaux, Region V President, commended our successes thus far, but encouraged us to keep reaching for higher. To the individuals who have watched us grow and helped us from freshman year to now, thank you for all you do. We will make sure to make you proud! We would like to congratulate all of the individuals who had great runs all year and will represent Region V in Abilene this year! Our event leaders included: Ross Freeman (bull riding) Jack Wright (saddle bronc) Kolt Dement (bareback) Mersadie Martin (goat tying) Thomas Wallace (steer wrestling) Whitlee Reed (barrel racing) Ima Champion (breakaway)

HELENA COLLMORGEN WAS THE HIGHEST SCORING RECIPIENT OF THE REGION V SCHOLARSHIP PROCESS!

Kasen McCall & Clayton Lowry (team roping) Reagan Davis (pole bending) Colleen Bridges (reined cowhorse) Kelsey Jordan (girl’s cutting) Nathan Socia (boy’s cutting) Ethan Craig (tiedown)

Abilene, I hope you’re ready for the athletes from this region- because while region rodeos have winded down, our competitors are firing up so that they will live up to the name and be the BIGGEST, BADDEST, and BEST at the THSRA State Finals in June!

P E RF O RM A N C E R E P O RT Keeping the Faith

By PAIGE DAWSON

T

– Performance Reporter

he school year is coming to an end and that means State Finals are just around the corner. We all go to Abilene with our own goals, while most everyones is to make Nationals, some are just hoping for good, safe, clean runs. One thing about State - it can be overwhelming! There are so many great rodeo athletes from all across Texas and even some from other states that are competing here. We often sell ourselves short; just because you don’t have the most expensive horse or the fanciest truck and trailer does not mean you are any less capable of winning that state title. We all have the opportunity and that is what we have competed all year to try and achieve. Trusting in God to guide you in the right direction is key, He may not have it planned for you to make Nationals or do good at State, but that’s only because He has

bigger and better things planned for your future. Every one of us sets out to do our very best. Sometimes you may feel like your not good enough or your horse isn’t fast enough or your stock draw isn’t good enough to win the round – don’t let those things get to you! You persevere by keeping the faith! If you think about it, God gave you that animal you drew or made you last on the ground for a reason - He is challenging you. He is trying to prove to you that if you trust and have faith in Him, greater things are to come. The most important thing is that you give it your all – you do the best you can do with the God given talent He blessed you with. It is our responsibility to work hard and cultivate the abilities He gave us; by doing this we honor Him. Sure, we may not have the outcome we hope for, but you have to remember, that everything happens according to God’s plan – we just have to keep the faith! When things don’t work out the way that we had hoped, we need to use the experience as a learning tool – correct what we can and improve our skills to make ourselves better rodeo athletes and be more prepared for next time. It’s often hard to watch a run and think what could I have done better, or hear from your coach, mentor or parents the little things you could have or should have done that could have made the outcome better. God puts these people in our lives for a reason and it’s our job to listen to them and do our best to correct what we can so that maybe the next run will turn out the way we planned. Remember, do not doubt yourself! We all have the ability to succeed and win. Texas is one of the toughest states to rodeo in, so making it to the State level is a huge accomplishment! Remember - some of the greatest cowboys and cowgirls never made Nationals, so don’t ever give up or loose faith!


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 2017 THSRA State Finals.

ongratulations to the McCoy’s Farm and Ranch family of the month, the Lawson’s! The first generation farmers/ranchers, Jonathan and Jeanette Lawson along with their children Tyler, Travis and Taylor own and operate J&L Land and Cattle, and J&L Agricultural Equipment, LLC. located in New Waverly, Texas. The family has been selling agricultural equipment, custom baling hay and breeding commercial cattle for 25 years. The main part of their

family business entails running a commercial cow/calf operation; however, during the spring they are prepping pastures for their fertilized coastal Bermuda hay. “We generally bale 20,000 square bales and 2,000 round bales each season,” the family said. “During hay season, we bale hay all day and move hay all night.” Though this lifestyle is not a nine to five, the family said they find freedom in being in charge. “Farming and ranching knows no weekends, holidays or even 9-5 work days,”

the family said. “I think the appeal comes from the fact you are your own boss, the love for the outdoors, stewardship of the animals, and most of all the opportunity to work together.” While they might be the first ones in their family tree to make ranching a lifestyle, Jonathan’s passion for agriculture was passed down by his grandfather and uncle in Arkansas. Jonathan studied agricultural business at Stephen F. Austin and began team roping and calf roping during his time there. After graduation, he became a Houston Police officer and on the side ran a small herd of mixed commercial heifers, cut hay and sold farm implements from his front yard. As his herd expanded and several years were spent in law enforcement, Jonathan decided to hang up the badge full time and open his own tractor dealership, J&L Agricultural Equipment. He still serves as a reserve police officer for the Montgomery Police Department; however, ranching and farming take up much of his time. Though Jonathan serves as the head honcho in all three of the family’s operations, the help from each family member as well as their full time ranch employees make the ranch go ‘round. “It takes the hard work of our entire family to make our ranch operate,” Jeanette said. “We are blessed to have family members and extended family help us if we are gone for an entire weekend rodeoing.” When the family is not on the ranch, they said their favorite past time consists of traveling to rodeos. Taylor, the youngest of the Lawson’s, is a sophomore and rodeos at Region 9. She is a competitor in the barrel racing, breakaway roping, team roping and pole bending. She is currently the reigning breakaway champion for the THSRA and represented Texas on the national level in the National Junior High Rodeo Association Finals in 2014. In addition to Taylor’s duties on the ranch, she rides two to three horses daily, and takes care of six. She is in charge of feeding, conditioning and grooming her horses and typically competes every weekend. “Rodeo is a lot like ranching,” the family said. “It takes dedication, perseverance and determination. There are many ups and downs, but you have to pick yourself up, brush yourself off and continue the journey to succeed.” The family said they feel very honored and privileged to be recognized as the McCoy’s Farm and Ranch family of the month. “It is because of great sponsors like McCoy’s which allows our children to participate in this great sport of Rodeo.”

n Region 7 cutting and reined cow horse events are in big business. There were 10 girls in cutting this year and the boys cutting had 8 boys. The reined cow horse has 11 kids this year. Among our high school contes-

reason for this is that the youth class in Gonzales usually has at least forty kids in it at any given show. Being able to complete against multiple regions as well as some of the best youth in the NCHA really gets high school contestants prepared to compete at the state level as well as nationals. The Three Amigos Cuttings are always run smooth and efficient. Marcy Blanchard and Don Poole go the extra mile to make each show fun and all their efforts don’t go unnoticed because the amount of entries at every single show. They always treat the constants with the respect. They are always willing to lend a helping hand with whatever needed anytime. One of the neat things they offer to youth before the start of the high school cutting season is a cutting clinic for any contestant that may want to learn how to cut. There are multiple trainers at


this event that volunteer to help the kids. The trainers go out of their way to share their knowledge with all kids to try and get more kids involved with cutting. Whether you are a beginner or someone who has cut for years you will leave having learned a great deal. The reined cow horse event takes place in Enda, Texas in conjunction with the Region VII rodeos. Since we hold them at the same time as our rodeos it is very convenient kids that rodeo to participate in this event as well. We have some reined cow horse experts in Matlock Rice and Mark Mills that are really helpful to all the kids that participate in this event. They are planning to offer a clinic sometime next season to help get even more kids involved in the event. We also host kids from several other regions when we put on our reined cow horse shows so if gives the kids an opportunity to compete against as many people as possible. There is a lot of talent in these two events so Region VII expects these contestants to have an amazing week in Abilene.

Region 8 is Ready for STATE! By Mollee

Herrmann – Performance Reporter

T

he 2016-2017 rodeo season is coming to an end and our state qualifiers are getting ready to head to Abilene for the one and only Texas High School Rodeo State Rodeo Finals. The end of the year event results have been posted and Region 8 has some talented cowboys and cowgirls to represent them in Abilene. For some, this will be the last state rodeo they will

MAILE SCIBA - CHAMPION POLE BENDER

go to, but for others this is a first. Each contestant will agree that in order to be the best you must be willing to push yourself farther than everyone else. You can’t just settle for good enough. You have to push yourself to greater lengths in order to reach your goals. That is exactly what Champion Bull Rider, LC Hennig has been doing this EMMA SMITH - CHAMPION BARREL RACER, entire year. I caught up with LC ROOKIE AND ALL AROUND CHAMPION, and he says he has spent hours in RESERVE POLE BENDING AND TEAM ROPING STATE QUALIFIER the gym this year getting physically ready for state! He went on to say that he has been riding his horse and getting on as many practice bulls as he can so that he can make a strong showing in Abilene next month. LC believes that Region VIII is the best region because of the friendships and comradery behind the chutes. Being the champion bullrider is an honor to him and he would like to thank “his parents, his little brother, Travis, Tim LC HENNIG - CHAMPION BULL RIDER Arnold, Dean Huff, Guy Hohman and Jesus Christ for all of the sacrifices and encouragement they have given him.” We are looking forward to some great 8 second rides from this Region VIII bullrider! Pole Bending is a very competitive event in Region VIII. This year, Maile Sciba found herself on top of her game, winning the year end title! Maile went into the year just hoping to be consistent and qualify in the top ten, but she found herself on top of the leader board and is very excited to be going into the State Finals as a champion! Maile has been getting her horse ready by exercising her every chance she gets in order to keep her tuned up for those runs at the Taylor County Expo! She loves Region VIII because of how kind everyone is and how encouraging her fellow members have been to her this year. She says “working hard will always show in the end” and encourages all of her fellow state qualifiers to continue their work! \Emma Smith has been busy at Region VIII this year. This Rookie came in on a winning streak from Junior High and rose to the top quickly among her veteran competitiors! She won the barrel racing, was reserve champion pole bender and girls cutting,


and she even qualified in the top ten in team roping with her partner, Kate McNeill. Not only that, she walked away with the Rookie All-Around and the All-Around Cowgirl titles! This girl is on fire at Region VIII and is hopeful for a hot showing in Abilene in June! Her and her favorite barrel horse, Bo, are busy getting prepared for their trip in June. Bo has ulcers, so Emma has to stay on top of ALL AROUND COWBOY CAL BROWN his health. Although Emma racked up many wins at Region this year, the highlight of her year came on the roping side of the arena in the team roping. She says, “having started team roping only a year ago, it has been such a fun opportunity to get one of the ten spots at State”. She and her partner have been hitting the practice pen every chance they get! Emma would like to thank her parents and everyone who helps her achieve her goals! Another Rookie that rose quickly to the top in the ranks of the veteran cowboys in Region VIII is Braedon Weaver. He set his goals to make state in the calf roping and team roping. In the beginning of the region season, he never dreamed he could possibly come out as the Champion Tie Down Roper and the first few rodeos were not great for this cowboy. He “knew he had to really step up his game” if he was going to reach his goal of placing in the top ten – boy did he ever do that! He has been practicing with Justin Maas, who has become Braeden’s biggest influence in the roping arena. Braeden spends as much time as he can practicing with Maas and feels that his mentoring really propelled him into being a better roper. The calf roping was a nail biter up until the last rodeo, with only a few points between the top ropers. It could have gone to any of the top three. Braeden went in to the last region rodeo with ONLY a one point advantage and knew he had to focus in order to come out on top. He worked very hard leading to that day and came out on top of the calf roping and went on to also clinch the Rookie Cowboy title and qualified in the team roping. Braeden is second generation Region VIII, as his mom was a member back in 1994-1997. She was the Region VIII Champion barrel racer back in 1994 and was a four-year qualifier to state! Braden would like to thank his family and his sponsors, OE, Texas Farm Credit and Sutton Ropes for all of their support. As a region, we would like to thank everyone who made our rodeos possible. All of the parent’s volunteers, board members, and adult and student directors were the only way we got through each rodeo. We are so excited to have such a great group of competitor’s head to BRAEDEN WEAVER - CHAMPION CALF state this June! Viva El ROPER, ROOKIE CHAMPION AND TEAM ROPING STATE QUALIFIER Ocho! #outworkem

Wrappin’ It Up T

By EMALEE HOFFMANN– Performance Reporter

he 2016-2017 Region 9 High School Rodeo season has officially come to a close. With only state left for the top 10 in each event left for this year, those competitors are preparing for their final runs of the year. Region 9 had their finals on March 25th at the Brazos County Expo Center in Bryan. The Lord blessed all of us to be there that day and to keep everyone safe. We started out the day with the Reigning Cow Horse Final Competition and then we had the Grand Entry, where the seniors made their last entrance in a Region

9 rodeo. It was a bittersweet moment for everyone, knowing this was their last hoorah, but that they would also be moving on to greater things in their life. We then had some great runs throughout the day and some of our seniors pulled out wins for the year. In bareback, senior Jared Stawser, won with a ride of 66 points. In breakaway, Stevey Ray Payne, won with a time of 2.7. Sonora Schueneman then won the goat tying with a 6.64, and Spin Edwards won the steer wrestling with a 6.7. Spin Edwards then also won the EMALEE HOFFMANN & EDDIE DYSON team roping along with Blake Johnson with a 7.37, and Zealdrick Plattenvurg won the tiedown with an 8.91. These seniors really stepped up their game for the final Region 9 rodeo of their high school career. We also had a few underclassman win their event too. Junior, Ashley Castleberry, won the barrel racing with a 16.489 and Jaron Sheehan from Magnolia, won the bull riding with a score of 72. In poles, Carly Staggs, won with a 20.318 and Jace Deveney won the saddle bronc with 58 points. Lastly, Lane York from Huntsville won the steer wrestling with a 6.7.

We had the famous Henson Dodge Truck Push, where each class of rodeo contestants compete to see who can push the truck across the finish line first. It was the freshman against the juniors and the sophomores against the seniors in the second round. It was a hard fought battel for the win, but the juniors finally pulled out the win. After the rodeo we had our finals banquet and it was a great time with our family and friends. Awards were given out to all of our sponsors, jackets to all the contestants, and then blankets to all the seniors. Then there were the top 10 buckles and champion saddles, given to those competitors advancing to state. Jared Stawser won the bareback. Kelsie Winfrey won the barrel racing. Peyton Baize won the boys cutting. Taylor Lawson won the breakaway. Parker McCown won the bull riding. Lyndie Dunn won the girls cutting. Lacy Bruening won the goat tying. Carly Staggs won the pole bending. Zoey Korenek won the reigning cow horse. Jace Deveney won the saddle bronc. Will Farris and Blake Georg won the team roping. Cash Enderli won the tiedown. The title

of Rookie All-Around Cowgirl was awarded to Lacy Bruening from Huntsville and Rookie AllAround Cowboy was awarded to Cash Enderli. Aly Ghormley won the Girls All-Around competing in barrels, breakaway, cutting, goats, poles, and team roping. Spin Edwards won the Boys All-Around competing in steer wrestling, team roping, and tiedown. We also said hello to a new officer team. Zandie Hodges was voted into the spot of President, with Ashley Castleberry as the Vice President, and Whittnee Stroade as the Secretary. Aly Ghormley was then awarded the position of the new Ariat Reporter. Thanks to past officers who will be graduating, Emalee Hoffmann, Mattie Sheffield and Spin Edwards for all their service to the region. Thank you to everyone who has made our region what it is today, because we would not able to put on the best rodeos in the state without you. We are ready to see our Region 9 competitors dominate in the arena at state and send them off to Nationals. Good luck to everyone traveling to Abilene this summer and may God be with you in whatever you do and wherever you go. Here’s to wrappin’ up another great

few Region X kids enjoyed a weekend in Salado, Texas hosted by the Bloomer family. The Bloomer High School Rodeo Team, a group of around 30 Junior and Seniors that are given the opportunity to represent Bloomer Trailers at The Texas High School Rodeo Association Finals and The International Finals Youth Rodeo. Seniors Leighton Berry and Kambria McDougal, along with myself spent the weekend in Salado. It was such an honor to be selected to be apart of the Bloomer Trailers Rodeo Team. Kambria and Leighton both are from Weatherford, Texas. Kambria and I are on the Bloomer Team as two of their three Barrel Racers. Leighton is one of the three Bareback riders for the team. When arriving in Salado on Friday we began individual pictures and group pictures. On Saturday we started with commercials and a few more group pictures. We ended our Saturday with the Bloomer Team meeting and dinner, where Alexis Bloomer and THSRA Finals announcer, Chris Rankin helped us with interview skills. Kaci Riggs, Sage Kimzey, & Green Beret John

Wayne Walding attended. Kaci talked about her journey with Hat Co and Sage spoke about his road to his Gold Buckles. John Wayne Walding was personally my favorite part of the Bloomer Meeting, he told his story about losing a leg fighting for our country. The entire Bloomer Family does so much for our generation in Rodeo and has given so much to our rodeo associations. Hannah Hammond finished strong at the Level 1 AQHA Championship Show in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Champion and Reserve Champion in the Youth Barrel Racing, along with being KAMBRIA MCDOUGAL the Champion in the Youth Pole Bending. Pictured are her trophies and Ribbons from the trip to OKC!

LETTER FROM TJHRA SECRETARY, ANNE DOLLERY

I

hope everyone is getting as excited as I am about the finals! It is hard to believe it is almost here! This next month will be a very busy one for me and I know it will be for you too…..but don’t get to busy and not keep up your practicing so you will be on top of your game when you get the finals. We want you to be ready to obtain your goal and go to Lebannon, TN with us at the end of June. Of course, keep your grades up too…..we know many of you will be missing your last week of school so sure don’t want you to have to worry about not finishing your grades out as good as you can. Now for some serious business…..if you don’t read anything but this I will be so happy! CONTESTANT’S YOU MUST BE CHECKED INTO THE OFFICE ON SUNDAY MAY 21, 2017 BY 1PM!!! If you break down, please call my cell 979-412-2551! Please do not push this time, it is mandatory and a very serious deadline. If for some reason something does happen in your travels……….CALL 979-412-2551. I hate to even bring this up, but there has been contestants sent home because they were late. Also, don’t forget your grades! This is a must!!! A final report card or your last 6 weeks report card will work. Everyone must show a copy of a current coggins paper at the gate and if you are crossing the state lines, you will need health papers. You may start arriving in Gonzales with your trailer and/or your horses on Friday, May 19, at 7am till 7pm, THE GATES WILL BE LOCKED ON FRIDAY AT 7PM (if you check in on Friday between 7am and 7pm you may leave in an automobile as needed – just no trailers) until Saturday at 7am they will then open for check in until Sunday at 1pm. If you arrive after 7pm on Friday be prepared to camp on the side of the road until 7am Saturday. After Sunday at 1pm, you will need to come to the office for your RV and stall assignments. Also, you may come and go with your horses without checking in after you know where you are stalled or if you are hauling in and out. We will again be showing the performances live on the internet on our own website this year www.tjhra.net This might be fun to let your teachers know and they can watch you while you compete. If you have any questions before you get to the finals, please do not hesitate to contact me. I always say, no question is a dumb question! It is better to ask and feel comfortable about something then not ask!!! Anne Dollery Texas Junior High Division Secretary 979-412-2551 (cell) texasjuniorhighrodeo@gmail.com

TEXAS JUNIOR HIGH RODEO ASSOCIATION NEWS

Who’s Gonna Fill Her Boots?

W

hen Taylor Mobbs was crowned the tenth Miss Texas Junior High Rodeo Association Princess in May of last year, she set out on a Texas-sized mission to spread the word about the association, its members and the revitalization of the Miss TJHRA Princess Pageant. A short year ago, the board of directors considered vacating the position by discontinuing the contest. Texas, your Princess stepped up and vowed to be the light during the time of darkness. And, did she ever! With Gonzales and the J.B. Wells Arena preparing for the stampede of cowboys and cowgirls approaching their front gates, this leaves us with only one question – who’s gonna fill her boots? It is an honor to introduce you to the “Eager 8!” These lovely and talented young ladies are vying for the opportunity to slip their feet into Texas’ glass slippers! Proudly representing their regions, we have: Laramie Dearing (Region III); Kyleigh Smith and Genevieve Blanchard (Region IV); Abi DePriest and Lieza Klein (Region V); and Abby Poole, Kristina Ribbeck and Amber Simons (Region VII). These ladies have a dream team and support system like none other; however, a princess can never have too many admirers. We would like to cordially invite all fans and followers to attend the public portions of the 2017 Miss TJHRA Princess Pageant. If you think a princess just has to look pretty, then you don’t know a Texas Princess! Our ladies can walk the walk and talk the talk. As stated in the April issue, the gates will open at 7 p.m. Friday, May 19, for check in. Early arrivers are invited to attend the pageant luncheon, held at 11:45 a.m. Saturday, May 20, in the 1st Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 601 St. Joseph St. in Gonzales. Doors will open at 11:15 a.m. and non-meal tickets will be available for only $5. The luncheon will include a welcoming and the introduction, impromptu, modeling and speech portion of the competition. Following the conclusion, everyone is invited to attend the horsemanship portion, held at 4 p.m. at J.B. Wells Arena. We look forward to seeing you at one or all of the events leading up to the start of the 2017 TJHRA State Finals. For additional information, please contact Dawn Tripp at finance@nzisd.org or at 936-399-2072. Although she is young and small, Taylor is certainly leaving some big boots to fill!
