Meet the 2019 Fair & Rodeo Court
Princess Maddie Coleman and Queen Savannah Storlie
The 2019 Court competed for the royalty title on October 27, 2018. Four young women were challenged in categories such as rodeo knowledge, appearance, poise, speech presentation, and horsemanship skills. Join us on March 9, 2019, for the Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo Court Coronation in the Main Pavilion at the Clackamas County Event Center (Fairgrounds). Watch for details on the Canby Rodeo website, the Clackamas County Fair website and the Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo Court Facebook page or ask either of these wonderful ladies.
Queen Savannah Storlie
Savannah was born and raised in the small town of Boring, Oregon. She is the 21 year-old daughter of Nate and Cindy Holmlund and a sister to 4 siblings. Following in her mother’s footsteps her love for horses started at an early age. She graduated from Sam Barlow High School in 2016, competing in equine 4-H as well as the Oregon High School Equestrian team for four years. She enjoys anything horse related, including keeping up on her mare Jolene. Savannah has been riding for 15 years and during high school, she was an OHSET State qualifier for 3 years, a PNWIC qualifier for two years, and a PNWIC record holder. Savannah was an Honor Student all four years of high school and the last two years of college. She currently attends Mt. Hood Community College pursuing a business degree and in the future, she plans to transfer to a university to further her education and ultimately end up in the bison industry. If she looks familiar to you it is probably because she was the 2017 Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo Princess. Savannah also enjoys working with leather, drawing, spending time at her family ranch in Wallowa, and traveling along the rodeo road chasing adventure. When asked why she wanted to be on the Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo Court Savannah stated, “I want to be part of the 2019 Canby Rodeo Court, because I want to represent and promote the sport I love most with dedication, grace, leadership, and faith, while educating others about the rodeo lifestyle. This is not only an honor, but an incredible opportunity to make a difference.”
