In breakaway roping, Kimball’s Hannah Havlik is tied for third on points in the regional round. She had 15 points with a top time of 2.71 seconds, which won the second go-round. Chloe Herren has 17 points and is in the lead.

Salem’s Michaela McCormick stands third in goat tying after her time of 8.03 seconds won the second go-round. McCormick has 10 points, while leader Josie Mousel, of Colman, has 19. Sidney McCord, of White Lake, is fourth in the reined cow horse competition with 14 points, with leader Jace Ullerich, of Humboldt, in first place with 18 points.

The East Regional rodeo competition continues June 12-14 in Watertown.

Cowboys and cowgirls use the regional rodeo format to score points to carry toward the SDHSRA finals and have four opportunities to score at the regional rodeos over a two-weekend span. The three best scores in each event count toward the state finals, where 60 possible points can be scored between the first two go-rounds and the final round. The top year-end point earners in each event after the state finals will qualify for the South Dakota national finals team.

The National High School Finals Rodeo will be held July 17-23 in Guthrie, Oklahoma. The event was moved last week from Lincoln, Nebraska following local health restrictions related to COVID-19.
