Fun Facts about Paige: Her first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualification has taken her down a trail of learning and having new experiences. She grew up with cattle and horses, but she and her sister, Ceri, are the first to compete. While she was in high school, Famous Hayday “Bazinga” came into her life. As soon as she turned 18, she bought her WPRA card and she and Bazinga went pro at the same time. That was 2020, the year of Covid, and navigating a plan that was ever-changing was a challenge. Regardless, she finished the season as the Resistol Rookie of the Year and was 32nd in the world standings. That got her into the building rodeos in 2021, but because of the pandemic, some of those were canceled. Still navigating the trail, she finished 29th. In 2022 when the rodeo schedule was back, she finished 17th. This year, with Bazinga and High Cotton Lane “Cotton” traveling with her, she edged out Sara Winkelman by $9,000 to finish 15th. A good portion of her money came in Wyoming in July. She won the Cody Stampede, and the Central Wyoming Fair Rodeo in Casper. She also earned over $6,000 at Cheyenne to bring her total haul out of the Cowboy State to $20,328.
