Shane McCannell

Events: Tie-Down Roping, Team Roping I have been a member of the MHSRA for 7 years. I attend High School in Pierson, Manitoba and plan to continue my studies at the University of Calgary this fall through a Bachelor of Commerce degree.
I would like to thank all those who have had a hand in making it possible for kids like me and my fellow graduates to participate in this great association. If it weren’t for the volunteers and those who go above and beyond each year, the MHSRA wouldn’t be the incredible experience it currently is and has been for me. Although my time in High School Rodeo is coming to an end, I am not leaving empty handed. I’ve met numerous lifelong friends and made so many unforgettable memories it’s impossible to keep track of them all. With that being said, there isn’t anything I would trade my years in MHSRA for, except maybe 7 more!

SCOTT LANE

EVENTS: Tie Down Roping, Team Roping, Light Rifle
I have travelled to MHSRA Rodeos for the past 10 years – I spent 3 years cheering on my older brother Joe and was excited to finally take my turn competing in 2014! I have been a member of Manitoba High School Rodeo Association for 7 years. I became a member in Grade 6 when I was eligible to take part in the Junior High events. It was a busy 3 years as I competed in Build a Cowboy Bareback Riding, Steer Riding, Ribbon Roping, Breakaway Roping and Team Roping. Once I started to compete in High School Events, I chose to compete in roping events – Tie Down Roping and Team Roping and am now excited to compete in the new event (new to MHSRA) of Light Rifle Shooting! High School Rodeo has enabled me to make many lasting friendships with those who share the same interest in horses and rodeo that I do. I have travelled to many communities where I may not have if it were not for participating in High School Rodeo. I have enjoyed being a member and now look forward to becoming a member of Lakeland Rustlers Rodeo Team and compete in the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. I have been accepted into the Animal Science Technology – Equine Major course at Lakeland College in Vermilion, Alberta. This will compliment my interest in the Equine/Cattle industry. I have worked at the Ethelbert Community Pasture for the past 2 seasons and will be heading that direction once again this summer. My future education will assist me to become more knowledgeable in this and numerous other livestock areas of employment. I would like to thank my many mentors who have assisted me along the way, the many communities that held MHSRA rodeos, the sponsors who have made MHSRA possible and of course my Parents, Greg and Vonda Lane, for their support – without any of these, MHSRA would not be possible!
