Six Central Alberta young people finished on top in the Calgary Stampede Invitational 4-H Rodeo held at Olds College recently.

Youngsters from nine-to-20-years old from across Alberta competed in a variety of rodeo events including barrel racing, breakaway roping, goat tying, cow riding, pole bending and steer daubing.

The race for senior high point champion put two Central Albertans on top with Katelyn Godwin of Leslieville placing first and Desire Jackson of Sundre taking second.

Godwin won the steer daubing competition, and Jackson took the senior pole bending title. Jessica Perreault of Rocky Mountain House won the senior barrel racing. Saige Jackson of Sundre won the thread the needle competition.

Brydelle Wardley of Alix won both intermediate cow riding and intermediate goat tying. Shanay Wilson of Sundre came first in junior pole bending.

The Stampede Invitational 4-H Rodeo has been held at Olds College for the past two years. Next year, the rodeo returns to Stampede Park Calgary, where it will run in the new Agrium Western Event Centre.
