Kormos wins RodeoHouston Super Series
In Tie-Down Roping
The Teague High School Theatre Department will have a public performance of their One Act Play, A Company of Wayward Saints, on Thursday, April 3, at 7 p.m. The performance will be at the Teague High School Auditorium; admission is $5.00. All are welcome to attend.
The road to the 2014 BP Super Series Championship at RodeoHouston ended Saturday, March 22, and as the dust cleared Teague Tie-Down Roper emerged as the 2014 RodeoHouston Tie-Down Roping Champion.
The title is sweet but the $50,000 payout Kormos received for out roping nine other world-class ropers in the event is even sweeter. In all, Kormos pocketed a total of $55,300 at this year?s RodeoHouston.
Kormos couldn?t be caught after he laid down a lightning fast run of 8.0 seconds in the $50,000 Championship Shoot-Out last Saturday afternoon.
After winning the title, Kormos said he was thankful to cinch his second RodeoHouston win, after first capturing the title in 2005. ?Houston is something every cowboy wants,? Kormos said. ?Every year I?ve come here, I?ve wanted this. It?s been a tough winter; I?ve been struggling with some tough luck. I feel blessed to have this win.?
