Congratulations to Sadie Grant (Challenger) who qualified in the breakaway. Dana Aviles (Challenger), Chelsey Bushnell (Challenger), and Alison Grantham (Open) earned their qualifications in the team roping. Rylee George (Open) earned a spot in both the breakaway and team roping. These ladies now have the opportunity to go on to Fort Worth, Texas and compete for part of $750,000. In addition to the WRWC, we also formed a partnership with the World Champions Rodeo Alliance. California’s Richest is roper friendly and we also proudly sanctioned wi th ACTRA, WPRA, and Rope for the Crown to give contestants as many chances to win regardless of what organization they belong to. The All Girl Ranch Rodeo was the highlight of Saturday, August 6. After starting the day with an Open Mixed ACTRA team roping, women ropers stayed behind to compete in a 3-Woman Line Sorting and Team Branding. We were so grateful that in our first year we had approximately 10 teams in each event and not only did we pay out cash, but also provided trophy knives to the fast times in each event.

Hoskins Memorial Team Roping and 16th Annual Barrel Race were held July 16th & 17th at the Monterey County Sheriff Posse Grounds in Salinas. After putting on the Doyle W. Hoskins Memorial for 18 years, you would think it would be easy and simple, but we are usually completely exhausted by the end. Don’t get me wrong, we are happy to do it in memory of a great man. We love being able to celebrate Doyle’s life this way. He was so passionate about roping, riding, family, friends, and life. The roping on Saturday ran amazingly thanks to our efficient office crew of Elly Leslie, Chelsea James, Heather Kennedy and Sheanna DeForest. Thank you to Todd Utterback for flagging all day. The roping takes a lot of manpower to keep it going, a special thanks to Carlos Guajardo for running the chute all day – we couldn’t have done it without him. Monroe Hoskins, CJ DeForest, Frankie Eubanks, Sabby Pemberton, Dwain Pemberton, Macias family, Escobar family, and Twister Hurley, thanks for stepping in and helping out. Thanks Eric Cozzitorto for bringing us great cattle this year. Thank you Geary Lyons for providing hay for the cattle. See DOYLE HOSKINS MEMORIAL On Page 28 See CALIFORNIA’S RICHEST On Page 26

As the Cinch Playoffs champion, he also earned a voucher to use towards a new RAM vehicle because of this 87.5point effort on Calgary Stampede’s Zoaria Hills. Green collected $18,850 at the rodeo which was showcased at the Washington State Fair. – PRCA photo by Kent Soule By Stacy Van Horne and Susan Kanode Special To Ropers Sports News PUYALLUP, WASHINGTON – It was Sunday funday (Sept. 11) at the Cinch Playoffs at the Puyallup Rodeo for nine rodeo contestants. The field was narrowed from 24 contestants down to a final four who competed for the championships. The highlight of the day belonged to Leighton and Layton. While it sounds like a great name for a law firm, it really belongs to the top bucking horse riders of the day, Leighton Berry and Layton Green. Berry, of Weatherford, Texas, was the lucky bareback rider to have his name by Calgary Stampede’s horse named Xplosive Skies. Xplosive Skies did his thing and took Berry to a 90-point ride and a check for $13,000. Layton Green of Millarville, Alberta, was the saddle bronc riding champion, thanks to another horse from Calgary Stampede. The horse named Zoaria Hills took Green to the win with an 87.5-point effort. It also got him a voucher to use towards the purchase of a new RAM vehicle as the high-money earner of the whole rodeo at $18,850. Berry finished second in that category with $18,325. Jordi Edens of Gatesville, Texas, had one of the biggest wins of her career at the Washington State Fair, home of the Puyallup Rodeo. Edens took home $15,700 for her 2.8-second run in the breakaway roping. She was the final roper to in the group of four and had watched her fellow competitors come up short twice, then Beau Peterson of Council Grove, Kansas, stopped the clock in 3.7 seconds. Edens knew she had to be faster than that and capitalized on her opportunity. At the start of the Puyallup Rodeo, she was in 13th place in the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association world standings. The win here will have secured her a spot in the National Final s Breakaway Roping in Las Vegas next December where she could leave with a gold buckle as the world’s best. Steer wrestler Stetson Jorgensen qualified for the Cinch Playoffs in first place and left in the same position. Jorgensen, from Blackfoot, Idaho, stopped the clock in 3.9 seconds to win $13,000 on Sunday. He was just one-tenth of a second faster than the men in second place, Dakota Eldridge from Elko, Nevada, and Kyle Irwin from Robertsdale, Alabama. Other winners here that had a $13,000 payday were barrel racer Margo Crowther from Fort Myers, Florida, team ropers Coleman Proctor of Pryor, Oklahoma, and Logan Medlin of Tatum, New Mexico, and tie-down roper Shad Mayfield, from Clovis, New Mexico. The bulls were more successful than the final four riders. Trey Holston, of Fort Scott, Kansas, was declared the champion based on him having the highest score in the semifinals.

PAGE 12 ROPERS SPORTS NEWS SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2022 Layton & Les Oswald Win Oakdale 10 Steer OAKDALE, CALIF. – The Oakdale 10 Steer was another great roping despite the heat. Ropers still came out to compete and support the oldest 10 Steer still going. The 10 Steer had 19 teams come back to the short round and 16 teams ended up catching all 10 with a “10 Steer” ball cap to prove it. The average winners were Layton and Les Oswald. We had 50 dummy roping contestants with neat prizes in all three divisions (1st buckles, 2nd spur straps, 3rd ropes, 4th hats). All buckaroos received a goody bag filled with sunglasses, squirt guns (for the heat), bubbles, poppers, snacks and candy. We hope to keep the added money for years to come to help draw the ropers to “the Cowboy Capital of the World.” We could not do any of this without our sponsors and the CTRA board. Our board openhandedly donates their time and energy to put on a successful family-friendly roping weekend. All generous sponsors provide funds for awards, giving the next generation a “swing” at a one-of-a-kind roping. Thank you to all our sponsors: Kyle Lockett (second from left) and Daniel Green (center) won the Leo Camarillo Memorial Open Roping. They are pictured with Leo’s children. Century Roping winners were Vern Serpa and Joe Robinson. Bo Bacigalupi presenting their buckles. Layton and Les Oswald were the winners of the 10 Steer average with 103.20 seconds on 10 to win $2,975 plus saddle certificates. Winners of the Phil Stadtler Memorial were Wyatt Hammerstron and Anival Guerreo. Presenting their saddle gift certificates are members of the Stadlter family. Colt Piazza and Joseph Shawnego were the winners of the Jr.-Sr./Mixed Roping. Alissa Erickson won the breakaway roping this year, she actually won first and second and took home over $1,500.
