Carbon rodeo freshman Kagen Rhodes won the light rifle shooting at the Silver State International Rodeo in Winnemucca, Nevada last week. He was crowned champion in this event and also placed sixth in the trap shoot. This is an international rodeo with participants from Canada as well as many from the United States.
Other local cowboys from the Emery team at this rodeo included Bowdie Jacobsen and Korby Christiansen. Carbon team member Sadie Waller also participated at the SSIR.
Both Carbon and Emery teams also have members qualified to participate in the NHSRA finals at Gillette Wyoming starting on July 13 through July 22. Kolton Rhodes from Carbon will be competing in the shooting events while Emery members will include Hayden Cloward in team roping and Riata Christiansen, who will represent Utah in the National Queen contest.
