Valley cowboys, Wright family wow the crowds at 104th Clovis Rodeo

The 104th Clovis Rodeo wrapped up Sunday with a local cowboy and a famous family all making good.

Jordan Ketscher of Squaw Valley, competing with his family in the stands, had a time of 9.6 seconds in tie-down roping Sunday to wrap up the overall average for the weekend.

Six members of rodeo’s most successful family, the Wrights from Milford, Utah, arrived Sunday for competition in saddle bronc riding. Jake Wright took home top money with a ride that scored 87 points, and 2017 world champion Ryder Wright was sixth.

Organizers said more than 45,000 fans attended the four-day event. There were more than 500 competitors and nearly 750 “animal athletes.”

Russell Cardoza of Knights Ferry won the all-around title with his performances in tie-down and team roping.
