FLORESVILLE -- Ethan Garza is the top roper after the Labor Day Team Ropin’ and Mutton Bustin’ fund-raiser held Sept. 2 at the Floresville River Park roping arena. The Poth senior class of 2013 sponsored the event, with proceeds to benefit Project Celebration.

Garza placed first in the No. 8 and No. 12 rounds, earning belt buckles as well for each event. He was joined by John Abel Zuniga in the No. 8 roping and Jaime Macias in the No. 12 roping. Garza also placed fourth in the No. 10 with Sergio Gonzales and second in the No. 12 with Andy Alaniz.

Adan Coronado also placed in four events -- first and sixth in the No. 7 and third and fifth in the No. 8. Belt buckles were bestowed on Coronado and Jesse Trbula for their first-place finish. Coronado also scored a buckle for his third-place finish while partnered with Jessie Gonzales in the No. 8 round. He also placed fifth in the No. 8 and sixth in the No. 7.

Belt buckles were awarded to the first-, second-, and third-place finishers in the No. 7, No. 8, and No. 10 roping events and the top finishers in the No. 12 event.

See “Roping results” for more on this.

According to organizers, the event that started around noon became an all-nighter, due to the large response. Garza was presented the high-point saddle Sept. 3 at 6:30 a.m., making this a true “Labor Day” event.
