STOCKDALE -- Ethan Crouch gave it his all June 15 to win the bareback riding contest during the 69th annual Stockdale Watermelon Jubilee Rodeo, held June 14-15.
Former high school rodeo contestants competed against local cowboys/cowgirls and others to gain points on the rodeo circuit.
Senisa Blandford won first in the breakaway competition, while Kelby Crow placed third in the calf roping. See “Watermelon Jubilee Rodeo results” for a list of winners.
The Jubilee was dedicated to Rickey Neill, an agriculture teacher for 25 years, who is battling cancer.
Also during the opening ceremonies, Laken Snyder was crowned Miss Rodeo Stockdale; Sydney Dockery, Miss Rodeo Princess; Careum Lambeck, Little Miss Rodeo; and Brayden Dillingham, Little Mr. Rodeo.
More royalty was crowned, this time Chris Oltmann of Nixon, who earned the title of Watermelon Jubilee King for his watermelon weighing 64.4 pounds. Last year’s king Jimmy Hernandez Jr. of Pandora came in second with his 44-pound watermelon. During the scholarship auction, the champion melons brought in $1,500 and $1,000, respectively.
