SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The fifth and final Bracket of competition at the San Antonio Stock Show is well underway with two rounds completed in the AT&T Center on Sunday.

The third and final round will see that brackets all completed here on Monday. Contestants that have advanced to the semi-finals are making their travel plans to be back here and for some that competed in Bracket 5, they are planning to stay in the Alamo City.

Two of those contestants are team ropers Kelsey Parchman from Cumberland City, Tenn., and Kinney Harrell from Marshall, Texas. With Parchman doing the heading and Harrell heeling, they won a second-place check during the matinee, then has a first-place check with a 5.5 second run Sunday night. They have earned $3,992 and are the high-money winners so far in the bracket.

Harrell is a 3-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) qualifier who nearly made it a fourth last year. He finished the season in 18th place, just three spots out of the top 15 who compete at rodeo’s championships. He and Parchman are on a mission to get back there this year.

Parchman joined the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association in 2008, the same year that Harrell qualified for his last NFR. One year later, Parchman made his only trip to Las Vegas. The roping partnership is working well for both of them in 2017. Harrell is currently 14th in the world standings and Parchman is 11th. Prior to San Antonio’s rodeo, they had won $11,564. They can add more to that here Monday night and then in the semi-finals.

Wyatt Maines, from Maple Creek, Saskatchewan is making the most of his first trip to the San Antonio Rodeo. Maines won the second round of bareback riding on Sunday night with an 81-point effort on Cervi Brothers Rodeo’s Grin & Bear It. That added $2,281 to his third-place finish from the afternoon rodeo. He is looking at a semi-finals qualification with $3,422.

Monday night’s rodeo will start in the AT&T Center at 7 p.m. The top four money earners in each of the events will fill the finals spots in the semi-finals which starts on Tuesday.
