Locals Take Home Checks from Jr Patriot

The Hooey Junior Patriot, in which all the contestants were 19 and under, handed out $1.341 million this year.

Four Wyoming cowgirls took home more than $100,000 of that purse.

Haiden Thompson shared the title in 19 and under goat tying with Josie Connor. Haiden added it to a list of other goat tying titles, including National High School Finals Rodeo Champion in 2021. She also claimed the championship in the breakaway roping at the Junior Patriot.
