Mason Moody is pictured receiving one of several buckles he earned at the South Dakota State Junior High Rodeo Finals in Rapid City this past weekend.

On Thursday and Friday, May 17 and 18, Teya Moody, Trey Moody, Tryce Slykhuis, and Mason Moody all competed in the Junior High Rodeo Regional competition to earn a chance to compete at the state level. They all performed well, but Mason Moody was the only one of the four who earned a chance to compete at the South Dakota State Junior High Rodeo Finals, which were held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 18-20. The regional competition was originally supposed to take place in Huron on the weekend in April that a terrible blizzard hit the area, so it was rescheduled to the two days before the state competition.
