19 & Under Tie-Down Invitational

Sam Lewis became the first-ever winner of the Roping.com 19 & Under Tie-Down Roping Invitational at the Hooey Junior Patriot Thursday, March 7, 2024. 

The 18-year-old from Amarillo, Texas, pocketed $12,500 in the $10,000-added roping between the rounds and aggregate. Being able to take home over $10,000 on a Thursday night is exciting for Lewis. 

“It means a lot because you don’t get very many opportunities like this,” Lewis said. “You can either go to these and get some experience, or you go straight to the big leagues. It’s mind blowing.”
