The scorching heat didn’t hurt local competitors at the 46th annual Quesnel Rodeo, held on the weekend of July 21, with participants from Cache Creek and Savona coming away with honours.

From Savona, Troy Gerard took first place in junior breakaway roping, and Elly Farmer placed first in peewee barrel racing. In junior barrel racing, Tosha Seits took second place, and Joleen Seitz placed third in ladies barrel racing.

Cache Creek competitors who placed high were Cash Isnardy, who was third in tie down roping; Riley Isnardy, who tied for third place in steer wrestling; and Brandon Daniel, who was the only person to place in bull riding.

In team roping, the duo of Aron Isnardy (Savona) and Archie Williams (Cache Creek) placed third.
