Benette Little has had a fantastic 2012 ProRodeo season.
It got better this week in Houston. Little placed in all three go-rounds and won the average in Super Series 1 at RodeoHouston, collecting $8,050 in the process – Little finished second to Lisa Lockhart in the opening round, split the second-round victory with Lockhart, then won the third round outright.
Keep in mind that unlike the men, money won by the women in Houston will count toward the WPRA’s ProRodeo standings and qualifications to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo – RodeoHouston is sanctioned by the WPRA but not the PRCA.
Little’s Houston earnings temporarily put her in the No. 1 spot in the world standings, but just a couple hundred dollars over Brittany Pozzi.
Of course, that lead will only remain until Pozzi runs in Reliant Stadium.
Congratulations to the semifinalists from Super Series 1.
