Young athletes from around the state competed in the South Dakota Jr. High Rodeo Finals at the James Kjerstad Event Center in Rapid City, South Dakota. The 164 members provided over 500 entries. The top four in each event will get to showcase their talents at the National Jr. High Finals which we be in Huron, South Dakota this year, June 24-30.

Dee Haugen, Sturgis, South Dakota, whose daughter will compete says she is pleased that the rodeo will be close. "We are excited to have this held in our backyard this year and the kids from south dakota will represent our state well. We couldn't put an event on without the help of our volunteers, secretary, timers, directors, event center staff, president, and parents. We also can't thank all of our sponsors enough. "

She said those interested in sponsoring the state finals in the future should contact kristyn fuller at kfuller34@gmail.com or tyler haugen at 605-490-2424.
