Local cowboys, cowgirls compete

The Southern Hills Rowdies and the Custer High School rodeo team hosted the Custer Rowdy Roundup High School Practice Rodeo May 26-27 in Oelrichs.
The reined cow, horse  and cutting events were held Sunday morning. Rodeo one was held Sunday afternoon. Rodeo two was held Monday morning following the grand entry that featured the Hot Springs American Legion Color Guard.

The all-around winners were  Gabe Glines of Smithwick for boys and Tava Sexton of Whitewood for girls.
Local average high point buckle winners including Cody Dirkes of Hermosa in the boys cutting; Avari Dorrance of Custer in goat tying; and Leighton Sander of Custer in the bareback.
