Cowboy headed to state final

Posted

A Quitman cowboy has made his way to the Texas High School Rodeo Association (THSRA) finals in Abilene in June. 

Colt Carpenter, a home-school student, will be competing on the state level in the tie down roping and team roping events. This is Carpenter’s fourth year to make the state finals in tie down and third year to make it in team roping as a header. He competes June 7 and 10.

The state final is an annual week-long event in Abilene where high school students from across Texas compete. It offers numerous awards, scholarships and the opportunity to represent Texas at the National High School Finals Rodeo annually in July in Lincoln, Neb.

Contestants compete in rodeos throughout the school year in one of 10 regions across the state.

At the last rodeo of regional level competition, the top 10 competitors in each event are announced.

Contestants are then given the opportunity to represent their region at the state level finals.
