Biggest Accomplishment(s)

My biggest accomplishment in my eyes was winning State with a 6.69. My 7th grade year was my first year to compete at Junior High Rodeos, I made it to State in 3 events, but had 2 bad runs in goats and finished with 2 No Times. It was devastating, I worked all year long vowing to win State and break arena record. My first go i slipped and was a long 9, my 2nd go I came back and won the round with a 7.10 and then in short round I had to tie a 6 to win state, I came back 5th call and tied a 6.69, the record is 6.65. I didnt beat the record but I did win State.
