Tuttle FFA Livestock Judging Team Members Take Home National TitleTue, 11 Jan 2022 16:19:55 CST
Tuttle FFA Livestock Judging team members won High Overall Team at the National Western Stock Show judging contest in Denver, Colo this week. CL McGill, the students' FFA teacher and coach, said of all the teams he has coached over the years, this one is one of the best.
"They did an awesome job," McGill said. "They are competitive - very competitive."
The team is made up of Chyann Emerson, Destyn Emerson, Laney Harryman, Brody Scroggins and Nicholas Reed. Not only did the Tuttle team win the title by a whopping 69 points, but three members also place as first, second and fourth highest individuals at the event.
Chyann Emerson, a senior, won first high individual; Laney Harryman, a junior, won second high individual; and Destyn Emerson, a junior, won reasons.
"They were one, two and four individuals," McGill said. "They are all feeling pretty good today - ten feet tall and bulletproof!"
McGill said the students have worked incredibly hard to earn this win, practicing around the clock to develop their eye for livestock.
This victory opens the door for the Tuttle FFA livestock judging team to travel to Scotland to judge at the Royal Highlands show this summer.
