Nevada State High School Rodeo Finals were held last weekend in Ely.
Alamo’s two club members, Lacey Steele of Alamo and Broc Lindburg of Las Vegas – went to state ready to compete.
Steel competed in barrel racing, goat tying, pole bending, breakaway roping, girls cutting, .22 light rifle and reining cow horse, which is new this year. She left as state champion in breakaway roping and girls cutting. She also won Reserve Rookie Cowgirl and Reserve All-Around Cowgirl. Additionally, Steele placed fourteenth in goat tying, fifteenth in pole bending, sixth in light rifle and fourth in reining cow horse.
She will compete at the Silver State International Rodeo in Winnemucca June 30 – July 5 in goat tying, team roping, pole bending, light rifle and is able to pick up barrel racing. She will also compete in the National High School Finals Rodeo in Rock Springs, Wyo. July 9 – 19 in reining cow horse, breakaway and girls cutting.
Lindburg competed in tie-down roping and team roping. He placed eighth in team roping with partner Casey Thomas of Las Vegas. This reserved them a spot at the SSIR as well.
Steele also ended up winning two saddles, five buckles and a few more prizes in those long three days. Lindburg won a buckle and a couple more prizes as well.
Their hard work and long hours paid off, and they would like to thank everyone who helped them and supported them throughout the season.
