It was another great night of mutton busting at the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show on Friday.  Fifteen young cowboys and cowgirls once again tried their best to stay on the back of a sheep for points and the shot at winning the championship buckle.

Here's a list of the riders from Friday night as well as the sheep they were riding:

  • REID HAWKINS – 5 – NACOGDOCHES - CURLY BILL
  • MCKINDREE GRIFFITH – 7 – LUFKIN - RAMBO

After all fifteen riders, it was 7-year-old Major Carthel of Nacogdoches barely edging Jacob Lawson of Lufkin for the nightly championship mutton bustin' buckle.  The mutton bustin' is sponsored by KICKS 105 Radio and Deep East Texas Electric Co-op.

We've got one more night to go of mutton busting and the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo.  Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the mutton busting will start at 7.  Then the final night of the rodeo, which is also designated as Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night will kick off at 7:30.

Here's a look at Friday nights' rides.
