A Hanna student from J.C. Charyk School is headed to Nationals in Wyoming in mid-July for leading this season of steer wrestling.
Walker Hutton followed in his fathers footsteps as a bulldogger and has always wanted to be a pro in the rodeo scene.
"I had a really good season; I went into the Finals with quite a few points. I didn't have the greatest finals but I won a go-around and placed in another one," explained Hutton. "With the points I went in with and then those two good rounds, I came out with enough points (that) I finished fourth."
Even though Hutton didn't have his best Provincials, qualifying fourth was still enough to get him into Nationals in Rock Springs, Wyoming.
"I made it to the National High School Finals. I also made the Canadian High School Finals," beamed Hutton. "First will be the National High School Finals in Rock Springs, Wyoming."
The National competition in the US is July 12-21 and then the Canadian competition is taking place in Merritt, British Columbia July 26-28.
"It's going to be a busy summer but I'm looking forward to it. I like it a lot more then working," Hutton laughed.
Hutton also enjoys bullfighting, as that and steer wrestling are his two favorite events.
