Once again, Ponoka will be well represented at the provincial high school rodeo finals June 7 to June 10 at the Stampede grounds.

Thirteen rodeo academy cowboys and cowgirls will compete against others from around the province to prove their grit with stampeding horses, bucking bulls, and other rodeo events.

Watch for Jessa Galloway who will compete in all of the girls’ events and who is season leader in district 2 for barrel racing. Klay Rowley is another favourite in steer wrestling as he is the season leader runner-up.

It all begins June 7 with most events at the Stampede grounds, but cutting will take place at the Ponoka Ag Event Centre.

The cutting final go will be held June 9 starting at 7 a.m. with the finals for the rest of the events on June 10.

The Ponoka contestants are; Tynille Clemmer, goat tying; Logan Bonnett, team roping and tie-down roping; Keely Bonnett, team roping and tie-down roping; Jessa Galloway, all girls events; Jenny Massing, breakaway roping and goat tying; Jordan Smith, team roping; Nick Smith, team roping and steer wrestling; Tana Millard, barrels; Sheldon Stretch, cutting; Klay Rowley, steer wrestling and team roping; Brady Betlamini, steer wrestling, and Ashton Zieffle, barrels and goat tying.
