Houston, TX: The Fort Scott Community College (FSCC) Meats Judging Team finished as Reserve Champion Team in the A-Division at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Intercollegiate Meat Judging Contest on Saturday, March 8, 2014. Eight teams competed in the contest.


“Besides Reserve Champion, the FSCC team also won beef grading, beef judging and total beef divisions,” said FSCC meats judging coach Jenilee Martin.


Several team members won individual awards at the contest. Natalie Hill won third high individual, seventh individual in beef grading, second individual in pork judging, high individual in total placing and sixth individual in questions. James Speith won forth high individual, forth individual in beef grading, sixth individual in total beef, eighth individual in pork judging, fifth individual in lamb judging, fifth individual in total placing and eighth individual in questions. Lane Johnson won seventh high individual, eighth individual in beef judging, ninth individual in total beef, tenth individual in pork judging, third individual in lamb judging and fifth individual in questions. Nikki Harris won eighth high individual, fifth individual in beef grading, third individual in beef judging, second individual in total beef, tenth individual in lamb judging and ninth individual in questions.


“I believe this group surprised themselves with their performance at the Houston contest,” said Martin. “At the previous two contests we struggled in questions and we used the month-long gap between Fort Worth and Houston to practice. I was very proud to see the tremendous increase in our questions scores. I think it taught us that hard work pays off. We stayed very close with the first place team and plan to use our long break to work on our weaknesses and tighten up our strengths.”


The FSCC Meats Judging team’s next competition is in Garden City at the Beef Empire Days next fall.
