BIGFORK — The Bigfork Summer Rodeo enters its second year as a growing event on the PRCA schedule. The first of three performances entered the arena to a packed house on Friday night.

It was a tough night for the saddle bronc riders, but Alan Gobert from Browning did lay down a 72-point ride that took the top spot for the evening.

In tie-down roping, it was Sam Levine from Wolf Creek putting up a great time of 10.2 seconds to start the night. Jack Graham from Lakeview, Oregon, got close to that by going 10.4, but Levine stays on top after Day 1.

To steer wrestling, where there wasn’t much luck, except for a Flathead Valley native from Polson. Tyler Houle gets the steer down in 6.5 seconds to take the lead after Day 1.

In team roping, Kal Fuller and Kasper Roy went an incredibly fast 4.2 to easily take a healthy lead.

And in barrel racing, it was Jennifer Sharp from Montgomery, Texas, who takes it with a blazing time of 15.29 seconds.

The Bigfork Summer Rodeo continues with a second performance at 7 p.m. Saturday. The final rides enter the arena at 5 p.m. Sunday.
