Three lakecity cowboys and cowgirls rode their way to Valemount last weekend for the last high school rodeo before finals.
Kaylee Billyboy, Melanie Wintjes and Wyatt Armes all competed.
In breakaway roping Billyboy secured a fast 3.7-second time for first place Sunday, after placing third on Saturday with a 5.1-second rope, qualifying her for finals in breakaway roping to go along with a pole bending final qualification.
“I moved from 15th to eighth in the standings in the south,” Billyboy said.
Armes showed grit in his tie-down roping and has also qualified for boys cutting.
Wintjes, meanwhile, won the Queen event and will also be competing at the BC High School Rodeo Finals, along with her teammates, June 11-14 in Kamloops.
