Carey School junior Amanda Hill put together a couple of quick barrel racing rides last weekend at Gooding to nail down the season championship in barrels on the Fifth District High School circuit.
Hill (17.686 seconds) placed first over Gooding's Peggy Wells in Friday's first rodeo, then Hill was a close second in Saturday's second go-round to end the season with 66 points. Wells and Gooding's Cady Mae Coates were next best with 60.
Amanda Hill also won the first go-round of breakaway roping with a fast time of 4.820 seconds at Gooding Friday.
The other season event winner from the local region was Carey's Brad Hunt, the bullriding champion with 28 points.
The Gooding district finals finalized the 10-rodeo Fifth District spring season, locked down the circuit's all-around leaders for 2005 and ended up qualifying the top six in each of 10 events for June's state high school finals in Pocatello.
Amanda Hill finished as the Reserve All-Around winner with 217.5 points behind All-Around winner Cady Mae Coates of Gooding (242). For the boys, Rob Webb of Wendell (171) topped Ted Walker of Glenns Ferry (158), with Carey's Bryan Hill fourth (111).
In addition, Amanda Hill qualified for state in four events—barrels, polebending, team roping with brother Bryan Hill, and breakaway roping. Fairfield's Kortnee Hurless made it to state in three—barrels, poles and goat tying.
Bryan Hill finished second in the steer wrestling standings and made state in that event as well. His Carey mate Moj Broadie also is headed to Pocatello in bulldogging.
Here are results of top finishers and locals from Wood River/Carey/Fairfield from the Gooding district finals May 27-28. The state finals are June 20-25 in Pocatello and the national high school rodeo finals are July 18-24 in Gillette, Wyo.:
