With triple wins the meat judging team has the honor of retiring its trophy.
The Texas Tech Meat Judging Team continued its winning streak at the American Royal Meat Judging Contest in Omaha, Neb.
The team posted a 15-point victory over its closest competitor and also placed first in both the pork judging and reasons divisions. Because this was Texas Tech's third victory at this contest, the team had the honor of retiring the trophy.
"This is an extremely deep team," said Mark Miller, professor and San Antonio Livestock Show Distinguished Chair in Meat Science. "They are constantly pushing one another to make the entire team stronger and better."
Loni Woolley, a junior animal science major from Grandview, won the contest by 40 points. This score matches the highest individual score ever posted by a Texas Tech meat judging team member.
Other team members include Markus Miller, from Abernathy; Mai Lee Holmes, from Katy; Jessica Kimbro, from Paradise; KatieRose McCullough, from Castle Rock, Colo.; Nathan Reeves, from League City; Troy Tarpley, from Fort Stockton; and Trevor White, from New Home.
