Jordyn Doetker completed the rodeo season at the 2013 Nebraska State High School Finals Rodeo in Hastings, held on June 20-22.
At the end of the weekend, Doetker walked away with a fifth place finish in girls cutting for the year.
For the cutting event, the cowgirls compete two goes, one on Thursday and one on Friday. The top 10 finalists go on to the short go on Saturday to compete for top honors.
Doetker placed first in her first go on Thursday with a score of 140 and placed fourth in her second go on Friday with a score of 139.
Her scores in the first two goes were enough to win the average between the first two goes and earned her a spot in the short go finals on Saturday.
She earned third place in the final short go with a score of 139.5.
When scores were calculated for placings, Doetker ranked second in girls cutting at the state finals rodeo.
Season rankings are calculated by taking an average of scores throughout the season as well as the state rodeo.
Doetker earned fifth place for the season in the state for girls cutting with an average score of 130.5.
Her average score was only 1.5 points short of earning her a trip to the National High School Finals Rodeo in Rock Springs, Wyo.
Ty Spickelmier of Imperial earned third place for the season in tie down roping and will compete at nationals.
Jordyn is the daughter of DeAnn and Jed Doetker of Wauneta.
