Corynn Kayser, Wade Endicott complete first goes in breakaway at junior rodeo finals



Wade Endicott didn't record a time in his first go on Monday at the National Junior High Finals Rodeo but gets another shot Friday morning.

Both Corynn Kayser and Wade Endicott made their debuts in the breakaway roping on the big stage at the world's largest junior high rodeo on Monday, with Endicott just missing recording a time in his first go while Kayser recorded one of her fastest times of the season.

Competing at the National Junior High Finals Rodeo in Huron, South Dakota, among more than 1,000 junior high competitors, both Endicott and Kayser completed their first go in their only event at nationals, the breakaway roping, and are up again Friday for their second turns.

Kayser was up in the second flight of breakaway ropers Monday at 9 a.m. at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds where she recorded a blistering 4.21 second mark, fourth among the 12 girls in her flight who recorded times. She came in right behind another Washington cowgirl, Tonasket's Brooke Richey who finished in 3.94 seconds. They were the only two girls from Washington to record a time as of Tuesday morning.

Also as of Tuesday morning, Kayser's 4.21 second time was the 13th fastest out of the 35 girls who recorded times in the breakaway. Her time also is one of the fastest marks she's had all season, besting her 5.4 second time she notched at the state finals in Kennewick. Her fastest time in the breakaway this season came in Coulee City when she finished in 3.66 seconds.


Corynn Kayser finished her first go in the breakaway at nationals in 4.21 seconds, one of her fastest marks in the event this season.

Endicott wasn't able to notch a time in his first go Monday afternoon but will have another chance with his second go coming up Friday morning at 9 a.m. local time in South Dakota or 7 a.m. PST.

Kayser is up for her second go Friday at 7 p.m. Central Daylight Time or 5 p.m. in Goldendale.

After competitors complete their second go in each event, the top 20 times/scores in each event will advance to Saturday evening's championship round, where they will get one more attempt. World champions will then be determined based on their three-round combined times/scores.

The Saturday championship performance will be televised nationally as part of the Cinch High School Rodeo Tour telecast series on RFD-TV. Live broadcasts of all NJHFR performances will air on
