For the past 88 years, the weekend after Labor Day has been celebrated with the Lewiston Roundup, the third of the four “Big 4” professional rodeos in the Pacific Northwest. Record-breaking crowds flooded the Northern Idaho town of Lewiston, to watch contestants battle it out for the coveted prize money and awards-which, with less than three weeks remaining in the season is more important than ever.
So, who took home the money in the ladies’ events? Tarryn Lee took home the Barrel Racing championship with a blazing 17.16 seconds run, which has moved the Arizona cowgirl into 23rd place in the WPRA World Standings race.
History was made at this year’s Lewiston Roundup with a new record holder in the books for the Breakway Roping. The New Mexico Cowgirl TiAda Gray stopped the clock in a blink of an eye with a 2.1-second run.
This quick run earned her a strong paycheck and moved her into 25th place in the WPRA World Standings, only $11,000 out of the top 15 in the world. With less than three weeks left in the 2022 season, every run and win is more important than ever. The final stretch of the race to the 2022 NFR is on!
