Reporter for The Canyon Weekly

Dylan Cate of Scio High placed in three events in the prestigious Pacific Northwest regional equestrian championships in Moses Lake, Washington.

The meet gathered together the top 5 finishers in each event at state competitions in Oregon and Washington.

Cate finished 3rd in individual flags with a time of 8.741, less than a third of a second behind winner Kaydn Collins of Sedro Woolley, Wash., who totaled 8.431. Josie Rinta of Ridgefield, Wash., was 2nd in 8.506.

Cate also finished 8th in figure 8 with a time of 19.124 and 9th in steer daubing.

Earlier, Cate helped lead Scio to an 8th-place finish in the medium team competition at the Oregon High School Equestrian Teams state championships at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Redmond. 

Dylan Cate finished 2nd in individual flags, 3rd in figure 8, was 9th in barrels, and partnered with teammates Adalai Rudkin, Audrey Storms and Santiam’s Makenzie Schmid to take 2nd in team versatility and with Rudkin to take 6th in 2-person team sorting. Cate also finished second behind Dally Wheeler of Colton in the individual timed rankings.

Football: Fall schedules are starting to take shape, with Sept. 2 the first Friday night of games. Santiam will open the season in its new 9-man format with a contest that night at Knappa. Scio, meanwhile, will be in the same neck of the woods along the Columbia River, facing host Rainier.
