'Full Throttle' heading to nationals

June 15, 2013

Timmi “Full Throttle” Hutchings rounds the final barrel and heads for home during the short go of the Idaho State High School FInals Rodeo in Pocatello on Saturday. Hutchings qualified for the national high school rodeo with her second place finish.

POCATELLO — It has been quite the rodeo season for Snake River High School's Timmi "Full Throttle" Hutchings.
The 14-year old won District Four's all-around cowgirl award and the rookie of the year honors, and over the past week she had the opportunity to compete to a state title at the Idaho State High School Finals Rodeo at the Bannock County Fairgrounds in Pocatello.

"Full Throttle" earned her nickname for the way she rides a horse, she may have also gotten the name for the way she dresses.
Donning a hot pink and black zebra striped top, Hutchings took to the arena floor for the short go with the hopes of cracking the top four and moving on to the National High School Rodeo Finals Rodeo in Wyoming next month.
Hutchings competed in three events on Saturday, team roping, breakaway roping and barrel racing.
The first event of the day for Hutchings was breakaway roping. Coming into the short go, Hutchings had a time of 19.68 on three rides.
She recorded a very respectable 4.76 in her run, but no one would catch District Eight's Cheyenne Sherwood who recorded a blistering 1.93, the only sub-two second run of the week. Sherwood won the go, but District Seven's Kara Burns won the state title recording a 12.61 on her four rides including a 2.89 on her final run.
Hutchings and teammate Cassidy Quinn did not have their best effort in team roping as the pair were unable to hold a score.
Sherwood and her brother Cole took home the state title after recording a 26.26 on their three runs.
Coming into barrel racing, Hutchings came with a combined time of 50.110. After watching most of the field run, Hutchings came out and recorded a 17.052. That effort gave her a second place finish in barrels with a combined time of 67.162 and a berth at nationals.
Aberdeen's Hailey Driscoll came home third and will also be heading to Wyoming next month.
The honors did not stop their for "Full Throttle" as when awards were handed out she was named rookie of the year, not a bad year fir a 14-year old.
District Two's Austin Williams had quite the day bareback riding.
During his first run of the day his horse bucked so hard it fell to the ground with Williams still hooked in. Instead of releasing his hand and taking a no time, Williams spurred the horse who popped back tip and the pair finished the ride.
Williams earned a 65 for the effort and a re-ride option. The cowboy took the re-ride much to the surprise of the crowd.
The re-ride proved to be even better. Williams rode the horse to a 69 which proved to enough to win him a state title. Firth's Rylie Clemens had the best District Four performance with a score of 61.
District Seven's Makayla Boots took home the state title in pole bending, Aberdeen's Lexie Lehman had the best District Four performance with a combined time of 92.131.
Tanner Butner from took home the title in saddle bronc after his 72 point ride in the short go gave him a score on a four rides during the week.
Dalli Bean from District Two won the state title in goat tying and Garrett Smith won another title in steer wrestling. He also took home a title in tie down roping and bull riding.
As expected Smith, from Rexburg won his fourth all-around cowboy award, and Boots took home the girls all-around award.
The top four in each event earn a spot at nationals. The National High School Finals Rodeo takes place July 14-20 in Rock Springs, Wyo.
