Wilkins Wins State Championship

RAINSVILLE, Ala. — Harley Wilkins, a junior at Plainview High School recently won the 2020 Alabama State Championship in Pole Bender-Senior Division.

Harley has competed in the Alabama High School and the Little Britches Rodeo Association for the past nine years.  She has won state championships in both associations. 

Pole Bending is (6) six-foot PVC poles that are set 21 feet apart.  The contestant will begin at the start line, runs down beside the poles with a sharp turn at last pole, and then proceeds to weave between the poles back toward the other end, racing across the finish line.  Wilkin’s fastest time was 20.2 seconds.

Congratulations to Harley for this honor!
