Bailey Myers, an 8th grade student at Eagle Point Middle School, has earned a position on the California state Wrangler Junior High rodeo team and will be traveling with fellow teammates to Gallup, New Mexico from June 28 through July 4 to compete at the 5th Annual Wrangler Junior High Finals Rodeo (WJHFR) in the barrel racing competition.
Featuring more than 1,000 contestants from 47 states, Canadian
provinces and Australia the Wrangler Junior High Finals is the world’s
largest junior high rodeo. In addition to competing for more than
$75,000 in prizes, WJHFR contestants will also be vying for more than
$50,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named the Wrangler
Junior High Finals Rodeo National Champion. To earn this title,
contestants must finish in the top twenty after two go-rounds of
intense competition before advancing on to Saturday’s final
championship performance. Again, this year, the Saturday championship
performance will be televised nationally as a part of the "20X Rodeo
High" telecast series.
