Memorial Day marked the 8th annual Sherry Cervi West Coast Youth Championships barrel race in Ceres, CA. Four hundred competitors from as far as Texas came to compete.
The format of the race is unique in the way there are two divisions; the junior 12 and under and the senior 13-17. It is a 6D barrel race with cash awarded in each D each round and prizes were awarded through 6th in the average in each D.
The berth of this event stemmed from long time friends of the Potter’s and Sherry, Shane and Kim Parsons, who host the event at their arena, the Diamond Bar Arena. Every year since the inaugural event there has been substantial growth in contestant numbers and sponsors.
Additionally, two special awards given in each division at the West Coast Championships
