MERIDIAN, Miss. — The Pearl River rodeo team competed in its first event of the spring semester this past weekend when it traveled to Meridian for East Mississippi's competition.
Kylee Ladner (Kiln; Hancock) placed fourth in Barrel Racing with a time of 15.10 seconds in the finals.
Kason Davis (Poplarville) placed seventh in Breakaway Roping with a time of 11.3 seconds.
The Wildcats had two teams place in Team Roping with Koby Sanchez (Ethel, La.) and Bryce Graves (Poplarville) placing tenth with a time of 8.2 seconds and Jeb Stewart (Hurley) and Blake Lyons (Ethel, La.; Silliman Institute) finishing eighth with a time of 7.6 seconds.
