"I was told my senior year would fly by, but I never thought it would go by in a ZOOM" - Jada Hamman

Last weekend was Jada Hamman’s senior Illinois High School Rodeo Association State Finals. Jada qualified for state finals in Goats, Pole Bending, Barrels, Team Roping, and Breakaway. She ended up 2nd in poles and barrels and Reserve All-Around Cowgirl for state finals weekend... Read more »

For the year, she ended up 3rd in poles, 2nd in goats, and 3rd in barrels. Putting her top four in the state in those events, qualifying her for High School Nationals, in Lincoln, Nebraska June 18-24.

Jada also made her goal of the title Illinois High School Rodeo RESERVE CHAMPION COWGIRL for Year 2020-2021. If anyone knows Derby, her prima donna palomino, you know that mare gave it her all this weekend in the 97+ heat and deluge of rain swamping the arena, two abscesses and two lost shoes. 4 clean barrels, 4 clean poles, and 4 goat runs. That mare is a true mare with “attitude”. Funny, the equine psychic says Jada and Derby “two peas in a pod”.

To add to the list, she received the “Teskey TOP HAND SCHOLARSHIP AWARD.” Each year, one is chosen because of their person. Their integrity, honesty, support of others, teamwork, community service, academics, training her own horses. Her person IN and OUT of the arena. Thank you for the honor of her being selected.

Congratulations Colorado Mesa University rodeo team. You got yourselves a good cowgirl!

Congrats, Steve! | Posted 6/18/21
