POIPU — Cora Murayama walked off with All Around Cowgirl honors following the final Kauai All Girl Rodeo Association event, Sunday at the CJM Country Stables.
The event was plagued by mechanical problems, but eventually got off the ground to wrap up the KAGRA calendar for the year. Results of the year-round standings will be announced at a later date.
Following Murayama, Kim Medeiros was awarded the Reserve All Around Cowgirl honor despite logging Fast Time honors in the Dally Team Roping event where she partnered with Alexis Vasconcelles as the header and Kim doing the heeling. The pair finished first in the event on a 7.79 seconds on a single go.
