Annually the WRPR crowns a queen and princess to serve as the WRPR ambassadors.


Hello! My name is Alexis Uttecht but I go by Lexi most of the time. I am the 2020 Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Queen! I am currently a Junior at Wausau East High School and I’m a CNA hoping to move on with my career in the medical field. I want to become a CRNA. I began riding in Kindergarten. It started with lessons once a week and I loved it ever since. Some things I participate in are the Merril Riders Club, 4H showing at the Wisconsin Valley Fair, and WIHA ( Wisconsin Interscholastic Horsemanship Association ). Some clubs I participate in outside of horses are 4H and FFA. In my free time I enjoy riding my horses of course, kayaking, drawing, learning, and spending time with my family.

This year as the WRPR Queen has been amazing and I have had so much fun! I wouldn’t be able to do it without my wonderful mom, Jennifer Urbanski, the rest of my family, the Brights, Mikula’s, Grenwalts, Blank’s, and my hero in Heaven Tari Ann Blank. Thank you to everyone who has helped me. I couldn’t be more thankful!


Hi! My name is Chasity Newmann, and I am proud to be the 2020 Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Princess! I am a 2015 graduate of Stratford High School, a current full time employee at Marathon Cheese in Marathon, and a part time worker at Rogalla Riding Center also in Marathon. Outside of work, I enjoy riding my own horses, and competing in barrel races all over the state! This year I also reached one of my goals and got my Women’s Professional Rodeo Association permit, so I can compete in many professional rodeos in and out of state! I am also a current member of the National Barrel Horse Association and Merrill Riders Club; and a past member to MANY different associations and clubs. Horses and the sport of rodeo has, and will always will, have an enormous part of my life, and hold some of my most treasured memories. Outside of horses and rodeo I also enjoy many different types of hunting, and being with friends and family! I’m so honored to be able to represent WRPR as this years Princess, and hope to continue even after I pass on the crown!
