“Bradshaw Roar” Student Highlight-Pierce Wold
Pierce Wold is a sophomore at Bradshaw Christian and has been rodeoing since he was 11 years old. As a participant in California High School Rodeo, he is held to the same strict standards as any other NCIF sport. Pierce participates in 4 of the boys’ events: Cutting, Reined Cow Horse, Calf Roping and Team Roping. Of these events, Pierce made the High School State finals in Cutting, Reined Cow Horse and Team Roping. The State Finals were held in June of 2018 in the town of Bishop. As Pierce was introduced in the arena, Bradshaw Christian High School was announced as well. He and his family are very proud to represent Bradshaw Christian. Pierce rodeoed in all of his events every day for a week. At the end of the week he was crowned State Champion of the Reined Cow Horse event as well as Rookie of the Year for the State of California. This past June, Pierce went to Rock Springs, WY for a week to compete in the National Finals High School Rodeo in the two events he qualified for: Cutting and Reined Cow Horse. Pierce ended up 6th in the World Finals in the Reined Cow Horse. He had an opportunity to share his faith in Christ at the rodeos and even started the televised rodeo on opening night with a prayer for the entire facility. Pierce Wold rodeos because he feels he is serving God’s purpose for him – following the talent God gave him with horses – and always giving Him the glory for all success.
