We've been hearing a lot recently about high school sports such as football, basketball, volleyball, and many others, but let's not forget that high school rodeo action is in full swing.

Texas is divided into 10 separate high school rodeo regions and we are in region 5In fact, Region Five extends from the Tyler/Longview area all the way down to Beaumont.  And the folks from Region V just wrapped up their 4th rodeo competition which was held this past weekend in Nacogdoches.

There will be another round next month in Marshall and then the venue changes to Liberty in March before the regional finals are held April 6th and 7th at the Nacogdoches Expo Cetner.
