Wade Endicott and Corynn Kayser finish up at junior nationals


Early last week, Centerville’s Corynn Kayser and Wade Endicott made their debuts with the best junior cowboys and cowgirls in the country at the National Junior High Finals Rodeo.

Making the haul to Huron, South Dakota, over a week ago, Kayser and Endicott were up in their first of two runs in the breakaway roping on Monday, where Endicott wasn’t able to record a time and Kayser finished her first go in 4.21 seconds, one of her best marks of the season.

However, Kayser wasn’t able to replicate her success during Friday’s second go and wasn’t able to record a score. Endicott also came away empty handed in his second go in the breakaway and both missed out on advancing to Saturday’s finals round.

The top 20 finishers in each event after two tries advanced to the finals round on Saturday, where they competed for a world championship.

Endicott and Kayser were just two of around 1,000 competitors at nationals from around the country. Kids from Canada, Mexico, and Australia also were competing.

Next up for the junior ranchers is the National High School Finals Rodeo which runs from July 15-21 in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

Klickitat County will be well represented in Wyoming with five high schoolers advancing to nationals.

Curtis and Cassie Kayser, along with Courtney Tatro, Justin Slater, and Lane Siebert all will make the trek to Wyoming.

See next week’s Sentinel for more information on the high schoolers.
