Jordan Driver qualifies for National High School Rodeo Finals

Jordan Driver, (daughter of Dane and Jennifer Driver & granddaughter of Wanda Driver), a Junior at Garden City High School has earned a position on the Texas National High School Rodeo team, and will be traveling with fellow teammates to Rock Springs, Wyoming  July 14-20 to compete at the 71st annual  National High School Finals Rodeo (NHSFR) in the Breakaway Roping & The Light Rifle Shooting completions.


The Texas High School Rodeo Association is a 501-C non-profit organization, which is the largest, most prestigious state high school rodeo association in the nation. THSRA sponsors over 125 rodeos per year throughout 10 regions across Texas. The rodeo year begins in August and concludes with the Texas High School finals in June. It is here, at the largest rodeo in Texas, where  "The Elite Compete" featuring the top 10 cowboys and cowgirls from each of the 10 regions.  They compete for numerous awards, scholarships as wells as the coveted honor of representing the state at the National High School Finals Rodeo held each July in Wyoming.


Jordan had competed all the week of June 8-15, 2019 in Abilene, TX at the Texas High School Rodeo Finals. She had qualified and competed in 7 events, Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Breakaway Roping, Goat Tying, Girls Cutting, Working Cow Horse and Light Rifle Shooting.  Jordan qualified back in the top 15 to the short round finals in 5 of those events hoping to finish in the top 4 that would earn her spot on the national team.  In the finals of the Breakaway roping with a time of 2.31 seconds winning the short round it was enough to move her from 11th to 3rd in the State and securing her spot to Nationals. She also was in the top 4 in the light shooting thus allowing her to head to Wyoming in hopes of bringing home two National Championship titles. Featuring more than 1,650 contestants from 43 state, five Canadian Provinces, Australia, and Mexico, the NHSFR is the worlds largest rodeo.  In addition to competing for more than $150,000 in prizes, NHSFR contestants will also be competing for more than $375,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named an NHSFR World Champion.



Congratulations Jordan!
