Maricopa youth places in Arizona High School rodeo


Cullen Teller of Maricopa placed third in team roping with partner Troy Nahrgang of Buckeye in the Arizona High School Rodeo.

The three-day competition was held June 19-21 in St. John’s.

Nahrgang, who in addition to his team effort with Teller took second in bull riding and steer wrestling, will now compete in the nationals in July in Farmington, N.M. He is a student at Buckeye High School.
