In her final year showing at the Fayette County Junior Fair, Tori Evans took home the top prize at the 2019 Dog Show on Monday.

At the end of a extremely hot day for both the dogs and the exhibitors, Evans, 18, was named the overall dog showman. The senior, who is a member of Perfect Paws 4-H club, showed her black Lab, Abby, during the competitive show.

“I’ve been showing her for five years so I think that had something to do with my success,” said Evans. “I’m seasoned, my dog is seasoned, and I think we just have a comfort level that shows. It’s an amazing feeling to win, to kind of go out with a bang. I came close multiple times, but this year we were finally able to win it. It’s a great feeling.”

Evans is the daughter of Todd and Raquel Evans.

Many other exhibitors achieved a high level of success at Monday’s dog show.

The overall on-lead winner was Hayleigh Bageant and the overall off-lead winner was Hailey Honicker. The high combined winner, which is the combined highest score in obedience and highest score in showmanship, was Hayleigh Bageant.

In the showmanship classes: Zacchaeus Broback won the Junior A class, Laine Holstein won the Junior B class, Blake Walker won the Intermediate A class, Hayleigh Bageant won the Intermediate B class, and Tori Evans won the Senior B class.

In the obedience classes: Tori Evans won the Graduate Novice B and Dog-Brace classes, Hailey Honicker won the Novice B class, Blake Walker won the Beginner – Novice A class, Hayleigh Bageant won the Beginner – Novice B class, and Laine Holstein won the Pre-Novice class.
