Mackenzie and Maggie Dokmanovich successfully participated in the Potter County qualifier and traveled to the North Central District VIII 4-H Horse Show held recently at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Brookville, Pa.

Mackenzie qualified in Western grooming and showmanship junior division, western pleasure ponies (over 13 hands, not over 14.2) and Western horsemanship junior rider with Zips Fire N Ice and in miniature horse driving junior division with Raders Irsul The Third.

Maggie qualified in English grooming and showmanship junior division and Hunter Under saddle ponies (13 hands and under) with Stone Ridge Serendipity and in miniature horse driving junior division with Cross Country Ragdoll.

They are the daughters of Patrice and Michael Dokmanovich of Bethel Park and granddaughters of Georgia Murphy.

Underwood medals

For five years, Sam Underwood has trained and competed in triathlons but this month, the 11-year-old McMurray resident took home a trophy. Underwood, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, grabbed the bronze medal in his age group. He covered the course, which included swimming, cycling and running, in 21:14 to finish third.

Making the grade

Joshua Kammeraad of Bethel Park completed his career at Hope College with accolades. In addition to earning three letters for cross country and track, he was named to the academic honor roll for the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association. To make the list, a student-athlete had to maintain a minimum of a 3.5 GPA for the year.
