The Catherine Creek Rodeo princesses will find out Friday who will be crowned queen.

The selection has been whittled down to three candidates after princess Lynsey Rogers of Summerville broke her collarbone in an accident this month.

Rogers will be unable to participate in horsemanship, which is part of the selection process.

The remaining princesses are Kinsey Keagle of Cove and Michelle Terry and Nicole Lawyer, both of Boardman.

Terry and Lawyer are cousins. Their mothers, who are twins, were on the court and encouraged their daughters to get involved. Both families used to live in North Powder.

Terry, who has been in 4-H since the sixth grade, said her mother told her it was really fun to be on the court. So far, that's been the case, she said.

She will be a junior at Riverside High School next year.

Lawyer, also a junior at Riverside, has been in 4-H since the fourth grade.

Lawyer said her mom also told her being on the court would be a lot of fun.

She said she enjoys the part during the rodeo when the court rides horses onto the race track.

Keagle, also involved in 4-H, will be a junior at Cove High School.

Keagle said four family members have been on the court and all of them encouraged her to participate.

"I've enjoyed it a lot," she said.

"Getting to meet new people and making new friends" has been a great experience, said Keagle, who plays basketball and volleyball.

The Catherine Creek Rodeo is scheduled Friday and Saturday in Union.

There will be no bull riding at Friday's rodeo. Bull riding is scheduled for Saturday's rodeo.
