Farrell qualifies for National Junior High Finals Rodeo

Ryan Farrell from Welfare has earned a position on the Texas National Junior High School rodeo team and will be traveling with fellow teammates to Des Moines, Iowa, June 23-29, to compete at the 19th annual National Junior High Finals Rodeo in barrel racing.

Farrell, a 13-year-old who will be an 8th grader in Comfort ISD in the fall, finished second in her age category. Only the top four in each event in each category advance to the national finals, which features roughly 1,200 contestants from 43 U.S. states, 5 Canadian Provinces, Australia and Mexico. It is the world’s largest junior high rodeo.

In addition to competing for more than $80,000 in prizes, NJHFR contestants will also be competing for more than $200,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named a NJHFR world champion.
