Quesnel bullriders tops in Williams Lake

Hohmann, Cork and O’Flynn shine at kick-off to BCRA summer season

Quesnel riders fared well at the 28th annual Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo last weekend.

A sell-out crowd witnessed Steve Hohmann take the bull-riding prize with an 81-point showing.

Lane Cork and Matt O’Flynn finished third and fourth in the event, almost completing the clean sweep.

Hohmann earned slightly more than $1,000 for his efforts, as well as a bonus $300 for a third-place finish in the bareback event, while Cork and Flynn pocketed $562 and $312, respectively.

The younger riders didn’t do too shabbily either, as Jordyn Farmer finished first among 15 riders taking part in barrel racing.

She finished with a time of 14.414 seconds, which fattened her wallet by $153.

The event is a kick-off for the B.C. Rodeo Association’s summer season.
