Zant Zamora, 17, hasn’t always had a rope in his hand. It just seems that way.
Zamora is in Gillette, Wyo., this week competing in the National High School Finals Rodeo. The Robertson High School senior qualified in three events — team roping (with partner Corey Charley), light rifle, and trap shooting. If he can crack the top six, he’ll earn a coveted spot in the Junior National Finals Rodeo and compete in Las Vegas, Nev., this December.
“It’d mean a lot,” he said. “It’d be a huge accomplishment.”
