Stephenville Represented at Texas High School Finals Rodeo

Back to Real Estate News

The national high school rodeo finals recently took place and Stephenville residents were among the competitors. The events took place at the Taylor County Expo Center Horse Barn.

Marty Yates took first place in the calf roping event with a time of 7.350 seconds, and Tate Elston took eighth place in the boys cutting event with 209. The boys faced some stiff competition, as Hunter Hightower (of Lipan) and Roger Brandt (of Amarillo) competed. Both boys were part of the Texas 2011 team that won the national team and boys division. Hightower is the 2011 national cutting horse champion.

On the girls side, Beka Jo Williamson (of Archer city) and Wacie Winterfield (of Perryton) both returned from the 2011 girls cutting team. Impressively, Winterfield was ranked seventh nationally last year and Williamson was an alternate.

Competitor Joe Beaver couldn’t participate in the cutting competition after breaking his ankle during practice for the South Texas rodeo. His horse actually fell on him, and he notes, “I was scrambling to protect my hip.”
