We had a great turnout for the Scholarship Cutting at Lubbock, TX on September 3, 4, and 5. We had planned to award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place scholarships of $1500, $1000, and $500. We got an awesome surprise on Friday when Toby and Mary Crow announced that they would be adding $3500 to the 1st place winner, bringing the 1st place award to a total of $5000! The final results were very close, coming down to a 1 point difference between Emma Rapp and Owen Cogdell for 1st and 2nd place, with Emma having a combined score of 227 and Owen having a combined score of 226. Wyatt Lewis took 3rd place with a combined score of 219.5. Thank you to all the Youth competitors and parents, and to Toby and Mary Crow for their support of the scholarship cutting!
