Like brother, like sister.
Shayne Arnold of Glenwood will be going to the National High School Finals Rodeo this summer, just as her brother Casey did the past two years.
A junior at Glenwood High School, Arnold recently won the state high school championship in breakaway calf roping and a spot on the Washington state team. She is the daughter of Ed and Terry Arnold.
Arnold, 16, said she and her main competitor, Mindy Primley of Battle Ground, "were like back and forth." Arnold rode her horse "Amos" to the breakaway championship at the state finals rodeo in Pasco.
Arnold is looking forward to her first national finals rodeo, which takes place in Springfield, Ill., on July 23-29.
"Hopefully, I'll do well," she said of the event. "I'm going to take my horse."
Last year Arnold competed in the regional finals rodeo in Fallon, Nev., in breakaway calf roping.
