Canton-Galva’s Sage Toews – Rodeo Spotlight Presented by Commercial Tire

Sage Toews is a freshman at Canton-Galva Jr/Sr High School in Canton. A third generation cowgirl, she has been competing in youth rodeos since she was about eight years old. She is currently a member of the Central Kansas Youth Rodeo Association in Canton, Forever 7 Rodeo Association in Lyons, and the Kansas High School Rodeo Association. She competes in barrel racing, pole bending, and her favorite event, goat tying. 

“I first got interested in my favorite event, goat tying, when I was young doing goat tail untying but it wasn’t till I was around 10 that I began to really like it,” she said. “I like it because the adrenaline rush of getting off of a running horse and then tying a goat is fun for me.”

Sage was the 2018 Family Junior Rodeo Association Champion in girls age 10-13 goat tying and the 2019 CKYRA Champion in girls grade 5th-8th grade goat tying. Her favorite title she’s earned has very special value to her.

“I think the accomplishment I am most proud of is winning my grandpa’s memorial buckle, The George Toews Memorial All Around Champion,” she said.

Another meaningful aspect of rodeo is the community support she and other student-athletes receive.

“It is amazing to see how supportive the community is of me and other rodeo athletes from Canton-Galva, we can always count on a big cheering section at the home town rodeos,” she said.

Sage also plays basketball, is the Canton-Galva FFA treasurer, and shows goats and swine in 4-H. After high school she plans to pursue a degree in agriculture as well as continue to rodeo and help her family on their quarter horse ranch.
