The Santa Anna FFA Horse Judging Team traveled to Tarleton State University Wednesday, April 17th for the Area IV CDE competition. Area IV covers an area from Miles to Slidell and Goldthwaite to the Red River. Our team of Keilei Isbell, Hannah Parson, Tabitha Strength, and Trinidi Deleon stood 10th in the entire area, missing a State CDE berth by 4 points and 2 places. The team was the top team in the Big Country District defeating teams from schools such as Wylie-Abilene, Ballinger, Coleman, Cisco, Bangs, and 9 others.
Keilei Isbell was the 10th high individual in the area, and 1st high individual in the district. Hannah Parson and Tabitha Strength were in a 3 way tie for 55th, with Hannah winning based on state tie breaker rules. Hannah was 8th high in the district, and, due to the tie, Tabitha was in an unbreakable tie for 10th. Trinidi was 131st individual in the area, and 30th in district. Also a member of the Horse Judging Team, but unable to attend due to a family emergency is Marie Scarborough.
I am super proud of these ladies and their hard work!
