The Comanche County Livestock show was recently held and several CHS students earned various awards.

Sophomore Nathan Wright won showmanship in the breeding swine category.

“I was a bit surprised because I was facing tough competition,” Wright said. “I usually spend two hours with my animal a day, so it was good to see my hard work pay off.”

Freshman Hope McGinnis was successful with her market lamb winning reserve grand champion with her South Down breed. 

“I was surprised when my South Down won,” McGinnis said. “I spend quite a bit of time working with my animals and attend Jackpots all year long. I was glad to win at the county show.”

Jeron Conine also earned the senior showmanship award in the market steer category.

“This is  the second time I’ve won this award,” Conine said. “So I’m just going to try and carry that over to our next show in Fort Worth in three weeks”
