Cowboys begin season
Bear River High School Rodeo Club members were in Ogden last Friday for the Spikers High School Rodeo. The audience saw Seth Ward place second in the team roping event, with a quick time of 6.57. Fellow cowboy Braden Rinderknecht placed 15th in the same timed evenet with 12.97.
Rinderknecht ended up 15th in tie down event, as well, with a time of 15.211.
Cowgirl Mackenzie Baker roped her calf in 14.705 seconds to place 19th in breakaway, while a time of 10.310 gave her an 18th place finish in goat tying. Teammate Haylee Boren had a time of 18.769 in barrels and a 29.118 in poles.
On Saturday, at the Double D Rodeo, also in Ogden, Rinderknecht improved on his team roping time with an 8.72 to finish 5th. His 23.040 time in the tie down event, however, dropped him into 42nd place. Ward improved on his tie down time, 15.080, to finish in 25th place, but his team roping time of 13.210 left in down the ranks in 24th place.
Baker had a 12.220 time with her goat, while Boren had 20.096 in barrels and a time of 23.073 in the pole bending event.
Bullrider Rowdy Cook bucked off his bulls at both rodeos but like the rest of the club, hopes to improve this weekend. The local cowboys and cowgirls are in Price on Friday and at Castledale on Saturday. They will be at home the next weekend to play host to rodeo clubs from around the state at the Box Elder Fairgrounds, on Friday, April 18, beginning at 3 p.m.
The club invites the public to join them for the Bear River High School Rodeo and some hometown fun.
