Shoot-out round: Top five riders from each division will qualify. From those top five, the coordinators will make teams – one person from each division.
The team with the best average wins the shoot-out round.
The coordinators are excited about the shoot-out round and say it “should be a fun little race to watch at the end of the day.”
The scholarship: Proceeds go toward a $1,000 scholarship. As the barrel race grows, organizers hope the scholarship will too.
Miranda Mikkelson, Belle Fourche, South Dakota, received the scholarship last year.
The Marcie Locken Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 2013, by her family and friends, to honor the life and courage of Marcie Locken.
Marcie grew up in Isabel, South Dakota and attended South Dakota State University, where she was a member of the Jackrabbit Rodeo Team.
In 2007, Marcie qualified for the National College Rodeo Finals in goat tying. She also competed in breakaway roping and barrel racing throughout her rodeo career.
In December 2011, Marcie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and fought her battle at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
On Nov. 7, 2012, at the age of 26, Marcie lost her battle to cancer, but her spirit lives on. Marcie was dedicated to her family, friends, rodeo, school and church. She always had a smile on her face and could always bring out the best in others. Throughout her battle with cancer, Marcie was a strong, fearless woman that fought her heart out. In memory of Marcie, an annual scholarship will be awarded to a student that shares the same qualities, dedications and dreams that Marcie was passionate about.
