Cowboys, cowgirls compete in Mavericks Junior Rodeo 

Summerville’s Calvin Shaffer made one of two qualified rides on the weekend to win the ranch bronc riding Sunday at the Mavericks Junior Rodeo.

Shaffer rode for 72 points, beating out Cullen Smith’s score of 67 points.

“It feels pretty good (to win),” Shaffer said after the ride. “It was a good horse. I got on her yesterday in saddle bronc and she dumped me. But I got to hold on with two hands today. It was a bit smoother (ride).”

Shaffer said the win is a little sweeter being that the rodeo was the last of the summer on the Cayuse Junior Rodeo Association’s schedule.

“I’ve been riding so-so (this summer),” he said. “I’ve been getting bucked off a lot of my saddle broncs.”

Shaffer was just one of 110 contestants to participate in the two-day rodeo at the Mavericks Arena. 

Joely Jak Patnoed of Condon was crowned the boys all-around champion, while Hunter Greenup of Heppner took the honor on the girls side.

Jett Stewart of Heppner was the boys reserve champion.

There were 10 local cowboys and cowgirls who competed, and all of them placed in the top-10 of their respective events.

Jacie Jane Shaffer, Calvin Shaffer and Taylor Lane of Summerville, Jazzy Lovins and Kayla McKennon of La Grande, Kimberly Williams, Michelle Williams and Dawson McGinn of North Powder and Parker Deal and Ryan Deal of Imbler all saddled up over the weekend.

The CJRA’s summer schedule started in May in Arlington and made stops in Milton-Freewater, Benton City, Wash., and Hermiston before coming to La Grande.

Full results from the weekend were unavailable at press time.
