Petersek roped a 14.10 to finish sixth in the first go around. He had a 13.66 second run in the second go to land him in fourth in the average with a 27.76 on two runs.

The South Dakota timed event championship is not just an average rodeo. Approximately 100 youth compete for the title during the State Fair in Huron. They must be between the ages of 14-19 years old to enter.
Thousands of dollars worth of prizes including a championship trophy, Featherlite trailer, scholarships, trophy saddles, jackets and jeans, just to name a few were awarded.
Contestants will choose 3 to 6 timed events to compete in. These events include: calf roping, breakaway roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing, team roping, and goat tying.
Boys and girls compete against each other to determine South Dakota’s timed event champion.
Champions are determined based on a point system
