Angelone Sisters Dominate At WPRAWorld Final Courtesy WPRA WACO, TEXAS – The Angelone sisters are quickly making names for themselves and their Virginia family in the Women’s Professional Rodeo The Angelone sisters dominated the WPRA Finals with Sarah winning the All-Around World title and Martha was reserve. – WPRA Photo by Rodeobum.com Association. Mar tha Ange lone (pronounced – Ang-a-lone-e) has dominated the WPRA ProRodeo Breakaway in 2022, but it was her younger sister, Sarah who captured the family’s first WPRA World Title the week of November 10-13 in Waco, Texas. Sarah won the WPRA AllAround World title with Martha finishing as reserve world champion. Sarah finished the year with $8,060, while Martha won $7,590 at WPRA approved events that had more than one roping discipline being contested at the same time. The sisters won all their all-around money at this weekend’s WPRA World Finals at Extraco Event Center. Sarah competed in breakaway roping and team roping, while Martha competed in all events offered – breakaway, team roping, tie-down and all-around barrels. Sarah headed for Martha in the team roping and heeled for Jessica Remsburg, a former WPRA world champion as well. The Angelone sisters, originally from Cross Junction, Virginia, and now are both living in Texas, look to be a force for years to come. Martha is currently the traveler in the family, while Sarah elects to stay closer to home making the WPRA World Finals a perfect fit for her. Joining Sarah Angelone in the world champions circle was Hope Thompson and Lorraine Moreno in the team roping and Tanegai Zilverberg in the tiedown roping. Thompson captured her third WPRA team roping world title and fourth WPRA world title over all. Thompson finished the year with $21,671 to reserve world champion Bailey Gubert’s $18,626. Moreno captured her first WPRA world title finishing the year with $17,994, while Rylie Smith finished reserve champion with $12,245. Two ladies that have spent time as college rodeo coaches teamed up together to win the average in Waco. Linsay Rosser-Sumpter and Taylor Munsell roped three steers in an event best 24.3 seconds to take the title. Danielle Lowman and Jordi Edens were second in a time of 30.6. Taking home the tie-down roping world title for the first time in her career was Tanegai Zilverberg. She finished the year with $4,155 to take the title from the reigning world titlist Kari Nixon, who finished second with $2,877. Zilverberg placed third in the first round and won the second round en route to the average championship as well with a time of 52.9 seconds on three. The WPRA Boot Barn Card Holder race came to an end on Sunday morning with Jackie Ganter of Abilene, Texas, taking the title. Ganter turned in the fastest time on Sunday morning stopping the clock in 15.682 seconds to win the round. Ganter was aboard Howes A Tycoon and won the average in a total time of 47.565 on three runs. All money won in the card holder race will count toward 2023 ProRodeo World Standings and the race also served as a qualifier for RodeoHouston. Ganter last qualified for the NFR in 2016, but 2023 might be the year she returns to the Thomas and Mack if this weekend was any indication. Reigning world champion Jordon Briggs looked to be in championship form finishing second in the average with 47.675. Briggs and Rollo finished second in the final round in a time of 15.854 seconds. Brooklyn Balch took home the permit only race title finishing with a total time of 48.327 secSee ANGELONE SISTERS On Page 38
