Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community member Angelique Schurz, 15, has been competing in rodeos for most of her young life. During the Southwestern Regional Rodeo Finals which consisted in Payson Arizona and Fort Hall Idaho, Schurz competed in girls breakaway roping and barrel racing. In her first run in barrel racing, she scored a time of 18.55, which put her in first place. Her second run was a fraction slower, at 18.65, putting her in second place. But that was OK, because the top three finalists in each event qualified to compete in the Indian National Finals Rodeo (INFR), which will be held in Las Vegas, November 8-11.
