Anaya takes tops in Goat Division

Corsicana — Following his afternoon Grand Champion win in the Lamb Division, Edgar Anaya turned right back around and brought his “A-game” to the Goat Division.

The Frost senior took home his second Grand Champion award of the day with the win.

Cody Carroll of Blooming Grove FFA took Reserve Champion in the Goat Division.

Anaya, 18, was surrounded by family and friends in the photo booth following the award.

“It feels great,” he said after his second win of the day.

Anaya has been involved in ag projects for the last three years, getting started at the urging of a friend. After a while, it “caught on,” he said.

Anaya said Navarro College is where he has his post-high school sights set for now, studying Oil and Gas Technology. Then, on to Tarleton, he said.

Carroll, 17, was named Reserve Champion, and then followed that up with Grand Champion in Senior Showmanship in the division.

“It's been really good,” Carroll said of the Youth Expo experience so far this year. “It's been a lot of hard work … it feels good to be in this spot again.”

Division Judge Dr. Billy Zanolini of College Station was highly complimentary of the youth in the Expo, and the quality of their projects.

“When these young men and women come out of the show ring, give them a hug, and tell them how proud you are of them,” he said.

In Senior Showmanship Judging, Dakota Miller of Mildred FFA took Senior Reserve Champion behind Carroll. Nathan Griffin of Corsicana FFA was third.

In Junior Showmanship Judging, Grand Champion was Cole Watson of Frost FFA; Reserve Champion was Allie Cope of Mildred 4-H; third place went to Jacob Lopez of Rice 4-H.

Mark Jordan, Tammi Perry and Jennifer Miller of City National Bank presented the banners and awards to all the division winners.
