Logan Wright stole the limelight during the Junior Show with Cherry Knoll Lady 1356, winning the Grand Champion Cow/Calf. His success continued when he returned to the show ring with Cherry Knoll Lady 1410, winning Junior Champion Female, as well as the Reserve Grand Champion Female. Sister, Lexi Wright, showed Cherry Knoll Cheyenne 1449 to the Reserve Champion Intermediate Female to close out the Junior Show.
During the Open Show, Cherry Knoll Farm kicked the competition up a notch. Claudia Hissong started the drive to Kansas State University, but decided to make a pit stop at the State Fair of West Virginia to show her cow/calf pair. Cherry Knoll Rosebud 1331 ended up winning the Grand Champion Cow/Calf with the top marks. Hissong also showed Miss Rosebud to win the Junior Calf Championship. It was the perfect moment for Cherry Knoll Farm, as they were able to wish Hissong good luck in her transition into college. The State Fair of West Virginia marked her last show before her freshman year of college.
The Cherry Knoll Farm team showed no signs of stopping as David Smith showed Cherry Knoll Elsa 1472 to win the Senior Calf Championship. Two more purple ribbons were added to their list of accolades with Lexi Wright showing Cherry Knoll Cheyenne 1449 to win the Intermediate Champion Heifer division. While Logan wrapped up the Open Show with Cherry Knoll Lady 1410 winning the Reserve Champion Heifer title.
Cherry Knoll Brigade 1404 was named Grand Champion Bull, with Brody Fitzgerald at the helm of the showing success. Logan Wright led Wright CKF Product to the Reserve Junior Bull Championship.
