Two Idaho high school rodeo competitors earned big paydays during the Days of the Old West rodeo sponsored by the Sawtooth Rangers Riding Club on July 2-4 at Hailey Rodeo Park.

On the final ride of Wednesday's Independence Day rodeo, New Plymouth High School junior Roscoe Jarboe thrilled the sold-out Hailey Rodeo Park crowd of more than 3,500 spectators with an 85-point bull ride.

Jarboe, third in the 2011-12 Oregon High School Rodeo Association bullriding final standings, won the $991.20 top prize plus $70 in day money.

Another big winner was two-time Idaho 5th District high school rodeo overall girls' champion Darby Fox of Glenns Ferry. Clocking 2.5 seconds on Tuesday night, she won breakaway roping for the rodeo's biggest prize, $1,479.36.

Fox added $677.28 to her holiday payday for placing third in a very competitive barrel racing event. Fox is the reigning Idaho state high school queen in barrel racing.

Sawtooth Rangers organizers said Wednesday's enthusiastic crowd exceeded 3,500, to go with Tuesday's show for about 3,000 fans and Monday's "Family Night" gallery with more than 2,500 spectators.

For the first time, the Rangers gave extra day money to event winners in each category, for each rodeo show.
