The Denton city parks and recreation department announced Tuesday that its parks maintenance staff placed third overall in the recent Texas Recreation and Parks Society State Maintenance Rodeo in The Woodlands.
Staff members who placed in individual events are as follows:
• Jordan Sloggett and Geoff Coffman, first in irrigation assembly
• Adrian Luna, second in the deck mower event
• Teresa Abrams, third in plant identification
Denton was invited to compete in the statewide competition after winning the TRAPS Regions 2 and 3 Maintenance Rodeo last fall. Other cities also competed after placing in the top three of each of the five regional rodeos.
