In the barrel racing, it was Challenger Mallee Jones who laid down the fastest time of the rodeo with a 13.495 on a borrowed horse to secure her spot in the Showdown Round while Hailey Kinsel brought the heat in the Pro division.

The top two ladies in the breakaway were just two hundredths of a second apart. Stephenville’s Martha Angelone was a 2.2 in the Pro Division while Keeley Senn was a 2.22 in the Challengers division. Josie Conner had her spot in the Showdown Round coming into the event but nine other ropers are coming for the young cowgirl.
