Wollert from Wiley to Compete in NHSFR in Wyoming

Wollert in Competition


DENVER- Wyatt Wollert, a 16 year old from Wiley, Colorado, will compete at the upcoming National High School Finals Rodeo. Wyatt, a member of the Southeast All Stars High School Rodeo team who recently completed his sophomore year at Branson School Online, has earned a position on the Colorado State National High School Rodeo team where he will compete in the boys cutting. This season, Wollert competed in the team roping, tie-down roping, and finished as the Colorado State Champion in the boys cutting. He will be traveling to Rock Springs, Wyoming, July 15-21 where he will compete along with his fellow Colorado teammates at the 70th annual National High School Finals Rodeo (NHSFR).

Featuring more than 1,650 contestants from 43 states, five Canadian Provinces, Australia, and Mexico, the NHSFR is the world’s largest rodeo. In addition to competing for more than $200,000 in prizes, NHSFR contestants will also be competing for more than $350,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named an NHSFR World Champion. To earn this title, contestants must finish in the top 20- based on their combined scores/times in the first two rounds- to advance to Saturday evening’s final round. World champions will then be determined based on their three-round combined times/scores.

Again, this year, the Saturday championship performance will be televised nationally as a part of the Cinch High School Rodeo Tour telecast series on RFD-TV. Live broadcasts of each NHSFR performance will also air online at www.RidePass.com. Performance times are 7 p.m. on July 15, and 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day thereafter.

Along with great rodeo competition and the chance to meet new friends from around the world, NHSFR contestants have the opportunity to enjoy shooting sports, volleyball, contestant dances, family-oriented activities, church services sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys, and shopping at the NHSFR tradeshow.
