Pearl River Rodeo team stands out at West Alabama competition

LIVINGSTON, Ala. — The Pearl River rodeo team competed in its second competition of the season this past weekend when it traveled to Livingston, Ala. to participate in the University of West Alabama rodeo competition. 

The men placed seventh overall while the women placed eighth. 

Sarah Booty (Liberty; Amite County) placed in the top ten in barrel racing and goat tying. 

Ashley Henderson (Pensacola, Fla.; Abeka Virtual Academy) placed in the top five in breakaway  racing while Kylee Ladner (Kiln; Hancock)  placed in the top ten for barrel racing. 

On the men's team, Preston Day (Kentwood, La.; Amite County) placed 5th in calf roping and Kason Davis (Poplarville) placed in the top ten as well. 

Pacey McBride also placed 3rd in steer wrestling. 

Rodeo coach Frank Graves was pleased with his teams performance but felt that they could have performed better down the stretch. 

"It was good to see so many of the kids place in the top ten," Graves said. "I do think we could've done better in the final rounds but overall we performed well." 

The team will return to action on Oct. 15 when they travel to Missouri to compete in the Three Rivers College competition.
