WHITE BIRD — Only one bull rider delivered a qualified ride last Friday and Saturday at the White Bird Rodeo, and that man — Colton Barnett — cashed a thousand-dollar payout.
Only Cole Apgar collected in the bareback riding, but fewer entries in that event put his payout at close to $600.
Breakaway roping winner Jennifer Casey hauled nearly $500, and the barrel race was worth $440 to Renee Ewing.
Tiedown roper Brady Brower nabbed $460, steer wrestler Tom Fazio grabbed $390, and team ropers Brady Whitener and Wyatt Haubirch caught $390 apiece.
Locally, Colby Canaday won the youth barrel race, while Jim Marek won the wild cow milking and Dean Klement and Bill Marek took the team roping title.
Beau Bruzas of Grangeville and Clare Uhlenkott of Grangeville won calf scrambles.
