The Bridgerland and Bear River rodeo teams hosted high school rodeos this weekend in Logan and Tremonton.

Once again, Carbon and Emery rodeo clubs had several members place in the top ten. Riata Christiansen was chosen queen for the weekend. On Friday, Emery team members Dax Hall with partner Kale Lamb as well as Korby Chritiansen and partner Sammy Taylor were third and ninth, respectively, in team roping. Tie down roping honors went to Hayden Cloward and Will Magnuson with second and seventh placings. On Saturday in Tremonton, Hayden Cloward and partner Whitt Crozier won top honors and Will and Wyatt Magnuson received five points for fifth place. Hayden also placed ninth in tie down roping.

Carbon team members Kolton and Kagen Rhodes placed both days in the rifle shoot. Kolton was first and fourth, Kagen seventh and sixth as well as fourth in trap shoot on Saturday. Sierra Edwards also captured points both days: Friday, ninth in barrel racing and Saturday, ninth in pole bending.

This coming weekend, the rodeo trail takes participants to Tooele on both Friday and Saturday. The last weekend of April, Juab and Spanish Fork will host the UHSRA competition. Two more weekend rodeos will take place in May before the state finals, which is scheduled for May 30 through June 3 in Heber City.
