SIKESTON, Mo. — The Pearl River rodeo team had another solid showing last weekend at the Three Rivers College rodeo. The men’s team earned its second straight second-place finish while the women’s team captured sixth place.

“The guys did really good, but we still had a couple of mistakes that would have pushed us a little closer to first,” head coach Frank Graves said. “Our team roping was really good this weekend, we had four teams make the short round. The guys have continued to perform well they’re going to be strong this year.”

“If we get to drawing a little bit better in goat tying, I think the girls can start to become really good. Both teams look like they will be near the top at the end of this year.”

The Wildcats were led in the team roping event by sophomore Kason Davis (Poplarville) and his younger brother Trenton Davis (Poplarville). The sibling duo captured second on the weekend after times of 7.8 and 7.6.

“They’ve been waiting the last couple of years for Trent to be old enough to get into college so that they could rope together,” Graves said. “It’s been a lot of fun to watch them together this year. They’re going to be really good this year.”

Blake Lyons (Ethel, La.; Silliman Institute) earned a sixth-place finish. Mason Theriot (Poplarville) and Bryce Graves(Poplarville) rounded out the vent, earning seventh.

Lane Westrope (Wesson; Wesson Attendance Center) took home third in bull riding. The placement was the first for Pearl River in the event this season.

Calf roping saw Theriot snatch third place, finishing with a first-round time of 10.7 and a second-round time of 15.8.

Lauren Booty (Osyka; Amite County) was the lone placement on the women’s side of things, earning fourth place in breakaway roping. She had a first-round run of 3.2 and followed it up with a second-round run of 3.7.


Pearl River returns to action Nov. 3-5 at the Southern Arkansas rodeo in Magnolia, Ark.
