High school rodeo is a go at Glenns Ferry

5th District debut

     Carey High School’s Kylie Castle and Whitney Hurless of Fairfield’s Camas County High School had point-getting rides during the first 5th District High School rodeo of the spring season Friday and Saturday, April 12-13 at Glenns Ferry.

     Hurless earned 22 points (14 barrel racing, 8 pole bending) to tie for 20th place in the girls’ standings. Castle collected 12 points (5 barrel racing, 4 pole bending, 3 goat tying).

     In Friday’s first go, Hurless was fourth in barrel racing (18.508 seconds). The Fairfield cowgirl added another fourth place in the barrels Saturday (18.917) and clocked an 8-point, third-place pole bending time of 22.823 seconds, also Saturday.

     Castle earned most of her points Saturday—sixth in the barrels (19.070), eighth in goats (12.060) and eighth in pole bending (24.012). She was 10th in Friday’s poles (24.550).

     Matt Whitworth, a Carey sophomore, also did point damage in tie-down roping (calf roping). He placed second to Valley’s Cole Lickley on Friday with a 17-second time, good for nine points. Whitworth followed that by placing fifth for six points in Saturday’s calf roping (17.770).

     Wood River’s Tayler Bosch, who placed second with 64 points in the district’s first cow cutting March 9, also competed in the barrels and goats at Glenns Ferry. Her best was 12th in the poles Saturday (26.859). Another WRHS rider was Larissa Roberts, ninth in Saturday’s goats (12.860).
