Mitch Detton of Great Falls and Aspen Swenson of Huntley maintained their leads in the All-Around standings of the Montana High School Rodeo Association standings.

Detton secured 24 points in Conrad last week with two first-place finishes in steer wrestling and one seventh-place performance in the tie down.

Swenson competed in the Cohagen Rodeo, grabbing plenty of points both nights. She won the pole bending on the first night and placed second in goat tying and added fifth- and ninth-place finishes in breakaway and barrel racing, respectively. On Night 2, she placed sixth in breakaway, eighth in barrel racing, 10th in pole bending and 17th in team roping.

Plains and Forsyth are hosting events this weekend, May 17-19, and Harlowton (May 24-25) and Big Timber (May 25-27) have events next week.

The state rodeo finals are scheduled for June 3-8 at the Majestic Valley Arena in Kalispell.
