Camp Verde High School senior Danya Weir has earned a position on the Arizona National High School Rodeo Team. Weir qualified for the National High School Rodeo Finals in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Weir competed in the Arizona High School Rodeo Association in breakaway roping and team roping during the 2013-2014 school year. On June 12-14, 2014, she competed at the Arizona High School Rodeo Association State Finals. At the close of this event Weir was honored with winning the Arizona High School Rodeo Association State Championship in breakaway roping. By winning the state of Arizona she will compete at the National High School Association National Finals from July 13-19 in Rock Springs, Wyoming.
Featuring over 1,500 contestants from 42 states, five Canadian provinces and Australia, the National High School Finals is the world's largest rodeo. In addition to competing for over $200,000 in prizes, NHSFR contestants will also be competing for more than $350,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named the National High School Rodeo National Champion.
The Saturday championship performance will be televised nationally as a part of the Cinch High School Rodeo Tour telecast series on RFD-TV. Live broadcasts of each NHSFR performance will also air online at NHSRATV.com. Performance times are 7 p.m. on July 13, and 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day thereafter.
Along with great rodeo competition and the chance to meet new friends from around the world, NHSFR contestants have the opportunity to enjoy shooting sports, volleyball, contestant dances, family-oriented activities, church services sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys, and shopping at the NHSFR tradeshow. To follow your local favorites at the NHSFR, visit NHSRA.org daily for complete results.
Traveling to Wyoming and spending a week there competing in the finals will cost about Weir several thousand dollars.
