Female Athlete of the Week: Shelby Boisjoli Ropes Fast to Win San Antonio
San Antonio’s newly crowned Breakaway Roping Champion is also your Female Athlete of the Week.
Shelby Boisjoli left no question that she was there to win it all after winning the first two rounds of Bracket 5 to start it out right.
A no time in Round 3 did not slow her down as she still qualified for the Semifinals. She went on to win that as well with a 1.9-second run during Semifinal 1. Boisjoli got even better in the Finals when she roped her fastest run of the rodeo with a 1.7, which was just one tenth off the newly set arena record.
Boisjoli racked up $10,583 and is now just outside the Top 10 in the WPRA World Standings. The three-time National Finals breakaway roper is gunning for a fourth and this San Antonio win has her one step closer.
