LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Students from all over Angelina County have been packing the arena floor of the George H. Henderson Expo Center the past three days and on Thursday, two sisters took charge of the goat show.
Hudson Senior Micah Slatter and her 8th grade sister Claire took home multiple honors from the market goat show. Both siblings won their individual divisions.
"We have several cousins in the arena with us, so every time we get three or four in the top, we increase our chances to win, so for us to both represent well; that was awesome," Micah said.
The two were also able to win the showmanship categories with Claire winning Junior Showmanship and Micah winning Senior Showmanship.
"For Micah to win showmanship her senior year that's pretty amazing," Claire said. "We feel pretty good."
With Claire still in school, the older Micah knows the family dynasty is still intact.
"She is going to step up and take my place," Micah said. "it's going to be interesting."
