Volunteers at Crosswired Cowboy Church in Grove hosted the first youth rodeo on Sunday, July 16.

The rodeo took place at the church's arena, located behind the church at 28565 S. 670 Rd., Grove.

For it being the first event, church representatives said they were pleased with the turnout. Ten youth registered for seven events, including barrel racing, poles, goat-tying, breakaway calf, breakaway steer, calf ribbon roping and team roping. 

Winners in each event received cash prizes. 

The rodeo was as an outreach event, and church representatives said they hope to do another soon.

Persons interested in learning more about future rodeo events are encouraged to visit the church's Facebook page, Crosswired Cowboy Church, for updates and announcements.
