Carey High School senior Kyle Brooks posted a 75-point ride Friday night for second place in the first go-round behind Gooding's Cy Eames (84 points) in the Fifth District High School rodeo at Gooding.
Brooks added a fifth-place 57-point ride Saturday to climb into sixth place in the season bullriding ranks with 15 points.
Saturday's bullriding wasn't as fortunate for Valley's J-2 Bridges, locked up in a battle with Cy Eames for the all-around season buckle. A bull stepped on Bridges at the end of his fourth-place 64-point ride and broke the cowboy's leg.
With three rodeos left including May's district finals, Eames (99 points to 94 for Bridges) is looking pretty good for the buckle. The girls' leader by 14 big points is Gooding's Cheyanna Robinson (90) over tour rookie Kourtney Agenbroad (76), also of Gooding.
Wood River's Kathryn Smith clocked a sixth-place barrel racing ride Friday at Gooding and is now in fifth place in the barrel standings with 17 points.
Next on the schedule is the Shoshone rodeo Friday, May 2 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 3 at 5 p.m., followed by the Carey rodeo May 9-10, the Jerome district finals May 16-17 and the State High School Rodeo Finals June 9-14 in Pocatello.
Meanwhile, Wood River's Hanna Thacker earned a third-place 71-point score and fifth-place 71 in the April 15 girls' cutting at Shoshone. Thacker stands in fifth place in the cutting ranks after three events.
The fourth cutting event of the spring was held Tuesday at Danny Thomason's in Jerome, and the final cutting is Tuesday, May 13 at Thomason's.
