The Queen Creek Junior Rodeo Association Junior Girls All-Around crown is being proudly worn by the Rim Country’s 10-year-old Bryndee Hall.
She won the circlet during the past QCJRA season as one of the most accomplished cowgirls on the five-rodeo circuit.
For the win, she was awarded a souvenir saddle, the second she has won in her young career.
In addition to winning the All-Around crown, Hall finished first in ribbon roping, goat tying and pole bending. She was third in barrel racing and fourth in team roping.
The young roper often teams up with Travis Stodghill in team roping, but in the QCJRA series partners are chosen on a blind draw, meaning she had several partners.
Bryndee’s previous All-Around title was earned four years ago while competing in the QCJRA pee wee (3-6 years) age division.
Bryndee’s accomplishments weren’t the only feats the Hall family enjoyed.
Brylee Hall, Bryndee’s 12-year-old sister, won the QCJRA Sportsman Award — a title voted on by the young cowboys and cowgirls.
Brylee also was third in senior division barrel racing and pole bending and fourth in goat tying and All-Around.
The family’s two youngest daughters, Bree, 5, and Brinna, 3, also competed and were awarded participation ribbons.
Also representing Payson was 14-year-old Chelsie Stodghill, who finished among the top five in the final All-Around standings.
The 2009-10 season opened last season in Payson and continued with stops in Florence and Gilbert.
At the season-opening competition at the Payson Event Center, Bryndee Hall, then 9, wowed the home crowd by winning the event’s All-Around title. In winning, she placed both days in barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying and ribbon roping. Her best single performance might have been in pole bending, in which she placed first.
Bryndee also plays Little League softball in Payson.
