One East Central FFA team is heading for national competition in October. Nine FFA teams participated for two weeks at state FFA contests held at a variety of universities across Texas to reach the pinnacle of being crowned state champion.

The Meats Team of Ciarra Gawlik, Jordan Hevner, Tommy Fletcher, and Shelbi Knox earned the state title by placing first out of 49 teams competing May 3 at Texas A&M University in College Station. Individually, Ciarra placed first high and Jordan Hevner, third high. This team, coached by Ray Pieniazek, qualified to compete at the National FFA Meats Evaluation contest next fall in Louisville, Ky.

Two other teams also competed May 3 in College Station -- poultry and livestock evaluation.

The Poultry Team of Stephenie Geistweidt, Kelsey Mihalski, Johnna Pieniazek, and Cheyenne Zaiontz placed second out of 53 teams. Kelsey and Stephanie placed sixth and seventh individually. Pieniazek also coached this team.

The Livestock Evaluation Team of Kevin Anderson, Kaleb Brogdon, Travis Hamilton, and Kylie Patterson placed 12th out of 92 teams competing in College Station. Kylie placed fourth-high individually. Danny Kempen coached this team.

April competitions

The FFA teams began their two-week run April 24 in Stephenville. The Dairy Cattle Evaluation Team placed fourth out of 53 teams at Tarleton State University. The team consisted of Alyssa Denson, Kylie Patterson, Hannah Plate, and Julie Kosub, who was eighth-high. Kempen coached the dairy cattle team.

Three teams competed April 26 at Texas Tech University in Lubbock -- the agricultural communications, food technology, and entomology teams.

The Agricultural Communications Team of Jordan Hevner, Kylie Patterson, and Johnna Pieniazek placed third out of 29 teams. Pieniazek coached this team, as well as the food technology team.

The Food Technology Team also placed third out of 15 teams. Kelsey Wall, who placed fourth-high individually, was joined by Cayla Golson, Paige Kosub, and Matt Lozano.

The Entomology Team placed 14th out of 49 teams at Texas Tech. The team consisted of Todd Bettice, Kearston Pollok, Paige Plate, and Sabra Williams. The team was coached by student teacher Shelby Watson with assistance from Lorie Kempen.

More May

contests

The East Central Marketing Plan Team placed fifth out of 19 teams competing May 2 at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville. Lorie Kempen coached the team of Ashley Coy, Kolton Dieckow, and Steven Fanick.
