A Yankton native made an impressive showing at the recent rodeo competition held at the Cedar County Fairgrounds. Tanner Anderson, a rodeo athlete and graduate of Yankton High School, took home wins in both the steer wrestling and team roping events.
Anderson, who now lives in Nebraska and competes on the professional rodeo circuit, credited his success to his strong work ethic and dedication to the sport. “It takes a lot of hard work and practice to compete at this level,” he said. “I’m grateful for the support of my family and coaches who have helped me along the way.”
The Cedar County Fairgrounds rodeo competition drew a large crowd of spectators, who cheered on the competitors as they vied for top honors. In addition to Anderson’s wins, several other athletes from the region also placed in various events.
The event was a welcome return to the rodeo scene for many after last year’s cancellations due to the pandemic. “It’s great to see everyone out here enjoying the competition and camaraderie that comes with rodeo,” said Anderson. “I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of the season holds.”
Anderson’s wins at the Cedar County Fairgrounds rodeo will likely bolster his standing in the professional rodeo circuit and earn him recognition among his peers. His success serves as a reminder of the talent and dedication present in the Yankton community, and a source of pride for his hometown.
