Kendal Fletcher from Kerrobert has had a busy season of breakaway roping and is now preparing to compete in college rodeo events when she goes to school in Saskatoon. 

Fletcher graduated highshool this year and will be attending a private message therapy school in Saskatoon in September. 

While she's there, she plans on taking part in college rodeo competitions, the first of which is scheduled to start on September 23rd. 

Fletcher's last competition was back in July, when she went to Gillette, Wyoming for the National Highschool Finals. 

We asked Fletcher how things went for her at Nationals. 

"I had some trouble in the first round, drew one of the faster running calves and came up a little short. So that didn't go quite as planned but then I had a couple of days to regroup before my next round and I ended up catching my calve."

Fletcher didn't make it past her second throw, but accomplished her goal of catching at least one calve. 

"There was 1600 competitors there so it was really really tough competition." Fletcher said. "I didn't end up making the short-go but my goal was to catch at least one out of two calves, so that was good to meet that goal."

The KCRA Rodeo year is all wrapped up now but Fletcher is looking forward to competing in college rodeos and is practicing almost every day to stay sharp. 

"I just came to my dad's for ten days and I brought my horse with me so I can keep practicing everyday."

She recently attended a breakaway roping clinic in Langdon, Alberta.

"That was really awesome." Fletcher said. "The three girls that put it on, I look up to a lot. It was really awesome to be able to go spend a couple days with them. I learned lots of new stuff, I'm really glad to go into the college season with that under my belt."

Kendal will be moving to Saskatoon at the end of the month and will begin her schooling in early September. Her first college rodeo will start on September 23rd and end on the 24th.
