The MHSRF (Montana High School Rodeo Finals) were held in Bozeman June 10-13.
Our local competitors made a good showing in the rodeo. Allison Bruner, Calvin Ophus, Malia VandenBos, Rye O’Neil and Will Shirley represented Pondera County.
The wet and cold weather made conditions less than favorable but as the saying goes, “the show must go on”.
Bruner competed in barrels and pole bending. She had times of 20.01 and 21.02 in barrels while in pole bending she had a no time for crossing the line and then a 30.95 due to a fallen pole.
Ophus rode bareback and scored 65 on his first ride, 76 on his second winning the round.
