One of most popular and quickest events in rodeo is the Breakaway Roping.  Entries at rodeos in the high school, college and amateur ranks are consistently very high, and that is the case at the Wyoming High School Rodeos.  With as many as 60 to 70 cowgirls entering this event, to win your time has to be fast. In order to get those quick times a cowgirl must combine horsemanship, roping skills and timing.  Knowing how to anticipate the start of the calf and making sure your horse is working with you will make or break many runs.  In Crook County there are some great breakaway ropers competing at this time.  Callie Robinson is consistently placing and has moved up the standings to third in the State.  Peggy Sue Garman and Baillie Mathews are also having success.  You can watch these young ladies compete this weekend in Newcastle on May 3 and 4. The High School Rodeo begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. on Sunday.
