Ben Ramsey/Buffalo Bulletin

Koy Meyers recently competed at a Wyoming High School Rodeo Association rodeo in Buffalo. Meyers heads to Rock Springs for national qualifiers this weekend.

Hot Springs County High School upcoming senior, Koy Meyers will be heading to the Wyoming High School Rodeo Association (WHSRA) national qualifiers in Rock Springs this weekend after qualifying through 12 rodeos in April and May.

Meyers and his team roping partner, Clay Reiner of Buffalo, are currently ranked 11th going into the competition and Meyers is ranked third in saddle bronc.

His ranking in saddle bronc almost guarantees a trip to nationals, which will be held this year in Gillette, the third week in July. Just the top four in each event will qualify for nationals.

According to his mother, Meyers has had a rope in his hands since he could walk. He also has an uncle who is a professional roper.
