Shaye Lynn Jessee places 12th in breakaway

Several returning junior high students are ranked among the top 15 in their region in Texas in the sport of Junior High Rodeo. Included in the mix is last year’s rookie of the year, Shaye Lynn Jessee of La Vernia, who not only returned to rank first in three events for Region 6, but led the way in the Region 6 All Around. She also qualified for national competition in girls breakaway by ranking first in state.

When the dust settled, Shaye Lynn proudly represented the Lone Star State by placing 12th in the girls breakaway average during national competition June 23-29 in Gallup, N.M.

Casey Crow of La Vernia also advanced to national competition. See next week’s edition for more about the young cowboys who excelled in the junior high rodeo arena.

To qualify for national competition, cowgirls accumulate points in rodeos held in 10 different regions of the state.

The all-around honors are given to the cowgirls for points accumulated in different events in each region of the state.

Shaye Lynn, an eighth-grader at La Vernia Junior High School, ranked first in ribbon roping, girls goat tying, and girls breakaway in the region. She placed 10th in barrel racing and also competed in pole bending.

In the Texas Junior High State Final Rodeo competition, held May 25 through June 1 in Gonzales, Shaye Lynn’s first-place finish in the girls breakaway qualified her to advance to national competition.

In the first go, she timed in at 2.87, followed by a second go of 3.55. In the third go, she improved her time to 2.420, for an average of 8.840, just edging second-place finisher Victoria Pineda of Caldwell, who had a time of 8.890.

In the girls goat tying at state, Shaye Lynn placed 12th. In the first run, she scored a 9.420. She also competed in barrel racing and as a runner in the ribbon-roping contest.

Top five all-around

Lindsei Harvey of Seguin ranked second in Region 6 All Around honors. She ranked second in two events -- ribbon roping and barrel racing. Lindsei also placed fourth in girls goat tying and fifth in pole bending, and competed in girls breakaway. She competed at state in all these events, finishing the season by placing 22nd in barrel racing.

Annabeth Peeler, the daughter of Jason and Marianna Peeler of Floresville, ranked third in Region 6 All Around. She ranked second and third in girls breakaway and ribbon roping, respectively. Annabeth was ranked eighth in team roping and barrel racing, ninth in girls goat tying, and 10th in pole bending; she competed in all these events at state.

She was the top runner for Region 6 in the ribbon-roping contest during state competition. Annabeth timed a 16.33 in the first go, followed by a 5.6 in the second.

Zoey Wiatrek, the daughter of Joey and Kristen Wiatrek of Floresville, ranked fourth in Region 8. The eighth-grader at Floresville Middle School qualified for state competition by placing fourth in ribbon roping and girls breakaway, sixth in pole bending, seventh in girls goat tying, and ninth in barrel racing.

Top 10 placings

Ciara Jenschke, an eighth-grader at La Vernia Junior High School, ranked sixth in Region 6. In state competition, she placed first in barrel racing, fifth in girls goat tying, and sixth in pole bending. Ciara also competed in girls breakaway.

Sydney Dockery of Karnes City, 13, ranked seventh in Region 6. The daughter of Matt and Lee Dockery, Sydney ranked second in pole bending. The reigning 2013 Miss Rodeo Stockdale Princess also ranked fourth in barrel racing, sixth in girls breakaway, and eighth in ribbon roping. She also competed in girls goat tying.

Ashley Huizar of Pleasanton ranked eighth in Region 8 All Around. She placed fifth in goat tying and 10th in pole bending and barrel racing. At state competition, Ashley competed in barrel racing.

Mayce Marek of Pleasanton represented Atascosa County by placing ninth in Region 6 All Around. She placed third in barrel racing, sixth in pole bending, and 10th in girls goat tying and girls breakaway in her region.

Other placings

During state competition, Emily placed 16th in the girls breakaway and competed in the girls goat tying.

Two Atascosa cowgirls, Rachel Schnelle of Jourdanton and Jennifer Balentine of Pleasanton, competed in pole bending and barrel racing, respectively.

Since Shaye Lynn, Zoey, and several of these young ladies were eighth-graders when they competed, next year is set to be an exciting year in the high school rodeo scene. The door is wide open for other cowgirls who will return for another year of excitement at the junior high level as well.
