     Wood River Middle School student Harlee Manning, just finishing up the seventh grade, captured eighth place in barrel racing during the Idaho State Junior High Rodeo Finals in Filer Idaho Sunday, June 2.

     She had a great run her first day, one of only eight girls who had a 17-second time at 17.764 seconds. That put her in fifth place after the first day. On her second day she tapped a barrel and settled for 17th place out of 51 contestants at 18.277. That placed Harlee 10th overall and allowed her to come back for a third day for the short go.

     Because of her second-day bobble, Harlee needed a top-two or top-three placing to qualify for nationals. She had an outstanding third-day run tying for fourth place in 17.450 seconds but it just wasn’t enough to make the top four in the averages to make nationals.

     She also competed in pole bending, goat tying and ribbon roping at the Junior High School finals at Twin Falls County Fairgrounds.
