The Blanco FFA Chapter recently traveled to College Station to compete in the Texas A&M University Area Career Development Events. Blanco did extremely well winning two contests. Of the more than 100 schools Class 1A to 5A in Area VII, Blanco was the only school to win more than one event.
In the livestock contest, Blanco would take home top honors with Logan Dodd winning high point individual of the contest. Tyler Hardin would also crack the top ten placing 5th, while Sam Isenberg would rank 13th. Ed Alvarado would also do well finishing in the top 30%. With their win, Blanco becomes the first school in over 20 years to win back to back area titles in livestock.
The entomology competition would also see Blanco finish first overall with Megan Wier ranking 1st as well. Erica Flores, Monica Flores and Rance Dollahite would all tie for 5th high individual. This is the seventh year in a row that Blanco has been the top team in the area in entomology.
As a result of their success, these teams will now advance to their respective state contests. The entomology team will travel to Lubbock to compete in the Texas Tech University State FFA CDE’s on April 19th and 20th, while the livestock team will head back to College Station to compete in the Texas A&M University State FFA CDE’s on May 3rd and 4th.
