National High School Finals Rodeo


The National High School  Finals Rodeo was held July 13-19, in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Performances began on Sunday evening and finished Saturday evening. 

Mother Nature won the third performance of the 66th annual National High School Finals Rodeo on Monday night at the Sweetwater Events Complex. Gusty winds and sporadic rain took a toll on the contestants’ performance. About midway through the performance, the winds began to die down and the rain came to a stop. By that time, a handful of arena banners had been ripped to shreds and more than a few had been forced to chase down their runaway cowboy hats.

Marcus Theriot of Poplarville, Missisippi was championed All-Around Cowboy, earning 1,810 points. He was second in the Tie-Down Roping Short Round and Average. He was third in Steer Wrestling Short Round and Average. Marcus and Chase Graves, both of Poplarville, MS, placed second in Team Roping Average.

Maggie Richardson of Arkansas placed fourth in the Queen Contest. In the Boys Cutting Short Round,
Drew May of Walnut Grove, MS placed eighth and third in Boys Cutting Average.

Lucas Brown of Cleveland, TN with Cole Watkins of Ringgold, GA placed first in Team Roping Short Round, but were eighth in the Average.

Corie Vaughan of Searcy, AR was fifth in Barrel Racing Short Round and Average.

In Boy’s AQHA Horse of the Year, Britt Drigger’s (AR) horse Steely’s Dee Docs was second.
