Stettler Rodeo Grounds were filled with spectators as the Alberta High School Rodeo Association (AHSRA) held its junior fall season wrap up over the weekend of October 6 to 8. On Friday evening, October 6, a special fun triathlon event was held following the regular rodeo, which saw contestants rope a calf, run barrels, and tie a goat. Those in attendance on Saturday evening were also treated to a Thanksgiving dinner provided by the Stettler District Agricultural Society. Riata Gammie, a Grade 8 homeschooled student with Prairie Land Public School Division (PLSD), on her horse Bam Bam ran in the barrel racing portion of the event in the large arena.

The Peewee Terrapins are having a building year out of the gate, playing some tough competition.
On Saturday, October 7, they hosted the Panthers. While it was a lop-sided 63-13 loss, the team showed resilience getting some points on the board, and sticking it out until the end with a touchdown and conversion with three minutes left.
“It was good to see they kept fighting, it has been a tough year but they don’t give up,” said Coach Brad Iverson.
The team lost a few players to the Bantam level and is rebuilding with new players. This change often comes with less success on the field.
He explains at the beginning of the year they played Stettler and were pretty close, but their second match-up was a little more lopsided.
“They are staying positive and working. Hopefully we get a win this year,” said Iverson.
Despite not getting that elusive win so far this season, Coach Iverson says they are progressing well.
“Everybody is getting better, and some kids are really coming along and are really starting to stand out and show they are really enjoying the game,” said Iverson.
He adds they have strong numbers which bodes well.
“There is a lot of interest, which is really good. The program has really built over the last few years. There were some lean years and now the interest is coming back.”
