The fourth and final rodeo of the 2011 California High School Rodeo Association District 3 event was held last weekend. The competition will again pick up in January as the area’s cowboys and cowgirls work hard to earn potential scholarship money. The results of last weekend’s rodeo were not yet posted, but the following were the standings going into the competition. GIRLS EVENTS Pole Bending – Alix Carpenter picked up nine points to remain atop the field after the Nov. 5-6 rodeo. However, Kay Cochran’s 10 points earned were not enough to keep her in second. She fell to sixth while Taylor Biglow’s 25-point pickup landed her the No. 2 spot. Faith Stewart remained in third after achieving a solid 19-point ride, which nearly put her into second. Points Standings – A Carpenter 65, T Biglow 54, F Stewart 53. Barrel Racing – Rachel Bertram went from fourth to first garnering 29 points with her ride. Bertram scored 30 in the September event, but had no points in October. Slipping one notch was Cierra McClure, who scored eight points in the Nov. 5-6 event; remaining in third was Emma Jones with a nine-point ride. Taylor Myers fell from No. 2 to No. 4 after picking up only one point in November’s first weekend of competition. Points Standings – R Bertram 59, C McClure 48, E Jones 41. Breakaway Roping – Katie Rice improved her No. 1 standing by picking up 18 points, but hot on her heels was No. 2 Madison Horton, who also earned 18.

Bull Riding – Tyler Stueve solidified his position at the top in spite of recording no score in October. He earned another 18 points, Nov. 5-6, to distance himself from the field. Robert Braiser had a good opportunity to pick up ground on Stueve, Nov. 5-6, after scoring 20 points in October. However, Braiser was blanked in that first November event. Clayton Brum improved his chances for postseason competition by garnering 20 points in the Nov. 5-6 bull riding. That put him in a tie for second with Braiser. Lance Baker, who’s no score that weekend dropped him into fourth, has 19 points. Points Standings – T Stueve 38, R Braiser 20, C Brum 20. Steer Wrestling – Leader Jaed Hare didn’t do anything to hurt his chances of coming out on top in this event when he picked up 30 points, Nov. 5-6. His competition, Jesse Clark, has yet to score. Points Standings – J Hare 50, J Clark 0. Tie Down Roping – Seth Bowling moved from No. 3 to the top of the heap with his second-straight 28-point outing, Nov. 5-6. That allowed him to move ahead of C.J. Beauregard, who earned 17 points. Riley Jackson turned in a 25-point performance to put himself in the No. 3 spot. It was a four-position jump as Jackson was sitting in seventh. Brum, who had been second, dropped into fifth behind Mason Mardesich. Mardesich tallied 15 points, while Brum was blanked Nov. 5-6. Points Standings – S Bowling 69, CJ Beauregard 62, R Jackson 48. Cutting – Jordan Sparrowk had a sterling 30-point effort, good enough to earn him the No. 1 spot.

Points Standings – J Sparrowk 81, C Bisby 76.5, C Brum 71.5. MIXED Team Roping-Header – There were no changes in the lineup as the top three performed well in November’s first rodeo weekend. Brum earned 20 points, Carpenter 18, and Coral Alberi 16. However, Alberi’s 5-point showing in October opened the door for Alyssa Warnke to move within three, Nov. 5-6, and Sparrowk was just four points behind her. Points Standings – C Brum 62, C Carpenter 54, C Alberi 43. Team Roping-Healer – Biglow slipped from first to fourth after getting no score, Nov. 5-6. Moving up was Tyler Gibbs, who earned 16 points to go from second to first, and Jackson’s 18-point showing was good enough to move up to the No. 2 position. Rice matched Gibbs’ 16 points to move past Biglow and into third. Points Standings – T Gibbs 58, R Jackson 54, K Rice 43.
