Tater Moody and Cayden Slykhuis teamed up as champions in the team roping competition on Sunday at the Heartland 4-H Rodeo in Huron.

Sanborn County was represented well at the Heartland 4-H Rodeo in Huron this past weekend. Several kids placed in their events, and some in more than one. The top three places in each event advanced to the State 4-H Rodeo to be held in Ft. Pierre. 

On Saturday, Trey Moody earned a second-place finish in the flag race, a third-place finish in breakaway and a fourth-place finish in goat tying. Mason Moody and his team roping partner earned second place in team roping.

On Sunday, Cayden Slykhuis and Tater Moody won the championship in the team roping competition. Tanner Christian earned third place in the junior boys cattle riding competition, and Teya Moody placed sixth in barrell racing.

Aubrey Moody had a good weekend placing in multiple events. Layton and Landree Zoss and Hudson and Ramsey Fouberg all competed and had some good runs.  

Delaney Zoss was crowned Heartland Jr. Ambassador for the entire event. Bailey Feistner and Avery Miller both also competed in the Ambassador contest, as well.

Mason Moody not only competed in the rodeo; he also provided the bulls for the bull riding competition. He was not able to compete in the bull riding, yet, but plans to as the season progresses.

The past weekend found Mason Moody and Madi Moody both competing at the Eastern Dakota 4-H Rodeo in Watertown. The Moodys have been busy already competing and preparing for competition, as their mother, Tracy, informed the Journal that Mason actually qualified and competed in the State High School Rodeo Finals earlier; however, this is their first 4-H rodeo competition for this year.

Their results for the rodeo in Watertown over the weekend are, on Saturday, Mason placed second in team roping. On Sunday, Mason placed fifth in team roping, and Madi placed second in goat tying, third in pole bending and seventh in barrel racing. 

According to Tracy, it is very exciting to have Madi able to compete in the goat tying competition again after she had to sit out last year due to a knee injury. Also, stay tuned for future results as the Moodys continue to compete this summer, and Mason will start bull riding next week.

Other local kids who also participated in the Eastern Dakota 4-H Rodeo in Watertown were Hudson Fouberg, Ramsey Fouberg, Layton Zoss and Landree Zoss, all from Sanborn Central and Tanner Christian from Woonsocket. No placings were reported for these students, but Hudson Fouberg was voted Miss Congeniality in the Jr. Queen Contest for the weekend’s event.

PIERRE – More than 200 South Dakota cities, counties and tribes will share in $500,000 in grants intended to control mosquitoes and prevent West Nile virus (WNV), the Department of Health announced today.

“South Dakota has a disproportionately high number of WNV cases when compared to other states. Local mosquito control efforts play a vital role in protecting our communities,” said Bill Chalcraft, administrator of public health preparedness and response for the Department of Health.

All applying communities received funding, with grants ranging from $500 to $20,000. Grant awards were based on the population of the applying jurisdiction and its history of human WNV cases through 2019.

Since its first human WNV case in 2001, the state has reported 2,612 human cases and 46 deaths. Every county has reported cases.

Including this latest round of grants, the state has provided local mosquito control programs with more than $8.5 million in support, in either direct grant funding or control chemicals, since the virus emerged in South Dakota.

Letcher was awarded $2,157, and Woonsocket was awarded $2,482.
