In addition to spending his summer working on his game, Knight is working on his game in an even bigger arena.


At last weekend’s South Dakota High School Rodeo finals in Belle Fourche, Knight claimed the state title in the Bareback riding event. And now, he will attend the National High School Finals in Rock Springs, Wyoming in July.

That’s BIG TIME!

Knight had solid rides in the first and second go arounds, at the state meet and it was his consistency that carried him to that state title with an overall score of 62.5

2nd place - Filipek Cooper, Rapid City - 59.5

And he wasn’t done….Knight also finished 11th in the state in the Bull riding competition…
