Congratulations to Zollie Saxon, 18, and her 13-year-old mare, Scarlet, who recently won in reining competition at the Youth Nationals Championship in Albuquerque, N.M.

Saxon, a 2007 Muskogee High School graduate, displayed not only her ability in the competition, but also her determination. She won after 11 years of competition and in her last year that she was eligible to enter the youth championship.

Many youth sports and competitions don’t receive the same attention from the public that football and basketball receive, but they are just as important to the youths who take part and invest in them.

Doing well in those sports is just as big an accomplishment as doing well in big-name sports.
