A trio of Foothills Cowboys got the title in the Team Penning event as Millarville's Kyle Dingreville, Shane Hamilton from Okotoks, and Alex Hansen from Chestermere won the Class 10 title.

The team finished third in the preliminaries last week in Okotoks, but beat out the other 19 qualifyers to take the title.

Two of the winning trio, Dingreville and Hamilton, are used to penning together, but Hansen was a new to the team this year, but comes in with plenty of experience as he was part of last year's Grand Champion team.

“Sometimes it just clicks,” Hansen says. “We’re a team that clicked.”

270 teams entered the qualifying rounds held in Okotoks, with only 20 going on to the Saddledome.

“It feels unreal still,” says Dingreville. “It hasn’t really hit me yet, but it will,” agrees Hansen. “I’m just glad I could have this experience and that I could have it with my friends,” Hamilton smiles. “I’ll always remember this.”
