Wyatt Denny, competing at the National High School Finals Rodeo this week in Rock Springs, Wyo., posted a 12th-place finish during his first go-round of cutting this morning.
While he didn’t place on the overall first-round leaderboard in the event, he gained 120 points, which could prove handy later in the week.
He posted the initial leading score in bareback (72) on Monday, but dropped into a tie for third in the overall first-round leaderboard after four full performances.
Wednesday will be a big day as he competes in steer wrestling in both the morning and evening performances. He competes in cutting again Thursday night and caps his week with the bareback on Friday night.
