High School rodeo regional finals coming to Lufkin

November 8-9, hundreds of the best high school rodeo athletes in East Texas will descend upon Angelina County for the Region 5 High School Rodeo Regional Finals. Region 5 covers from Smith County to the Louisiana border and down south to the Golden Triangle area of Orange and Port Neches.

There are eight high school rodeo regions in the state, and the organizers say it's okay if you have never heard of it.

"This is a sport that a lot of people don't know about," Region V Secretary Susan Livingston laughed. "It's sanctioned through the UIL. It's a good family sport. That's why I'm the secretary, I did it when I was in high school. It was my way to stay connected to it, because it's a family organization."
