POINT PLEASANT — Two familiar faces will top the market lamb sale bill this Friday at the Mason County Fair.
Alexis Meadows and Kaitlyn Dunn took home grand and reserve champion banners, respectively, at Tuesday’s market lamb show.
The senior showmanship category also saw a familiar face take the top honor with Haley Jo Sturgeon coming in first place, Dunn in second and Jacob Fisher in third place.
In the junior showmanship category, two sisters took the top honors, including Madilyn Keefer in first place, Hayley Keefer in second place and Bailee Bumgarner in third place.
Rookie of the Year, a new award sponsored by the Roadrunners 4H Club, went to Brooke Grimm. The lamb was shown by Levi Doolittle. The Rookie of the Year Award goes to the highest-placing individual participating in their first livestock show.
During the special lamb show, the grand champion was shown by Chris Conner with Tyler Conner as helper, and the reserve champion lamb was shown by Ashley Morrison with Emma Rice as helper.
