Congratulations Hannah and Drew Stroschein

The Northern Hills Little Britches Rodeo ran two days at the events center in Rapid City April 18 and 19. There were 144 contestants for each rodeo.  Most of the junior and senior divisions are getting ready for junior and senior high school rodeos – and some of the region’s top young riders are getting into their spring and summer rodeo season.  The rodeos technically are separate on each of the two days with separate winners in each division.

Except for the youngest cowboys and cowgirls in the “Little Wrangler” category, divisions are split into boys and girls junior and senior classes. In the team roping and ribbon roping the teams may be coed.  Even in the Little Wrangler division, times are kept to the thousandth of a second on electronic timing equipment, and placings can be separated by hundredths of a second or less.

Along with trophy type awards, the buckles and bling of traditional rodeo, the riders do win checks to take home, just as in the PRCA but smaller.

Winning in the Junior Girls Division with all around honors: Hannah Stroschein of Dell Rapids.

In the Junior Boys Division in Goat Tying: third place went to Drew Stroschein and in Flag Racing, Drew took first place.

CONGRATULATIONS!
