Four members of the Merritt Secondary School rodeo team have qualified for the B.C. High School Finals in Williams Lake on the June 5-8 weekend.

Leading the charge is senior cowgirl Fallon Fosbery who qualified in five different disciplines: breakaway roping (ranked 1st), team roping (2nd), goat tying (7th), barrel racing (9th) and pole bending (11th).

Fosbery’s partner in the team roping event is Cole Churchill from Westwold.

Qualifying for the BCHSFR in three events is Resa Stoltzfus. She is second-ranked in cow cutting, ninth in goat tying and 10th in pole bending.

Kelsey Kynoch will travel to Williams Lake to compete in two events — pole bending (8th) and barrel racing (11th).

Brooke Gabara round out the MSS quartet. She will compete in pole bending, where she is ranked 12th.

All four cowgirls competed on the weekend at the final high school rodeo of the regular season in Valemont.

On Saturday, Fosbery picked up a win in breakaway roping along with a second in team roping. Sunday, she finished off with a third in pole bending.

Other top-10 finishers on the weekend were Stoltzfus (two sixths and a seventh in goat tying and pole bending) and Kynoch (a sixth in barrels and a ninth in pole bending on Sunday).
