Five area athletes are ranked among the top 20 in Texas Junior High Rodeo. Two of the five -- Wells Mitchell and Casey Crow -- have experienced the chance of a lifetime to test their skills in national competition. Fisher and Hunter Underbrink and Cash Fretwell are contenders to watch in the coming year.

Wells Mitchell of Stockdale competed in the 2014 nationals and finished 12th in breakaway. See “Stockdale saddle star shines in Iowa,” July 23 Wilson County News.

Casey Crow of La Vernia, a 2013 national competitor in boys breakaway, again made an impact on the rodeo circuit, but fell short of a return to nationals by placing ninth in calf roping, also known as tiedown. During state competition, Casey had three clean runs, including a time of 13.66 in the first round. To advance to nationals, a cowboy must rank among the top four.

The son of Kelly and Cheri Crow, this seventh-grader was ranked second in Region 6 calf roping.

Two Pleasanton cowboys -- Fisher and Hunter Underbrink -- placed second in Region 8 team roping. With Fisher serving as the header and Hunter, the heeler, their second-run time of 9.540 was the fifth fastest in that round. They completed their state run in 11th place.

Fisher also was ranked as the region’s reserve champion in tiedown and finished his state run tied for 25th place.

Cash Fretwell, a seventh-grader at Pleasanton Junior High School, led Region 8 in boys goat tying. The son of Chuck and Kristine Fretwell, Cash is the grandson of Albert and Mildred Mihalski of Adkins. He finished his state run in goat tying tied for 18th place.

The runner-up in the region’s boys breakaway, Cash competed at state and tied for 25th place.

Final year

Two cowboys completed their last year in the junior high competition -- Mason Howard and Kaleb Macias.

For Stockdale eighth-grader Mason Howard, 2014 was his second year of competition.

Mason enjoys the friendships he’s made on the road and while competing, said his mother, Kimberly Howard. He also credits family friend Brian Jenkins as a mentor and influence.

Kaleb Macias, the son of Jaime Macias, is a student at Poth Junior High School. He picked up his father’s talent, and served as a heeler on the Region 6 No. 1 roping team with Kaleb Friedel of Yoakum. The two competed at state.

All of these cowboys competed in other events to qualify for state competition. See “Junior high region standings” for more.
