A number of Great Basin rodeo high school participants did well at the state rodeo held in Pocatello last week, but missed out on a chance to go to the upcoming National High School Rodeo in Rock Springs.
Only the top four cowgirls and cowboys in each event qualify for nationals.
The Pocatello rodeo kicked off on Saturday, June 7, with the queening events. It concluded Saturday, June 14, with the coronation of the queen and honoring the top 20 in each event.
The Great Basin team is a part of the Eighth District and includes cowboys and cowgirls from Franklin County, with 11 participating.
Bailey Harris, Kelcee Christiansen, Brook Layne and Brooke Winward competed in pole bending. Kaely Alder and Rikki Thompson both did well in breakaway roping. Thompson also rode in the barrel-racing event, along with Hailee Jensen.
Three cowgirls, Winward, Jensen and Rachelle Povey, made their way to state in goat tying. In steer wrestling were Wade Smith, Kade Crouch and Coleton Robinson, who also appeared in team roping.
