Kyle Epp and Charlotte Silhan, Hillsboro, got first place for nine year-old boys and girls respectively at the state fair pedal pull. Both have been competing since they were four and have competed every year except last year due to COVID-19.
Silhan competed against 18 other girls and came just short 6 inches of a full pull.
“She outpulled 2nd place by two feet, but I think a lot of that was adrenaline,” said mom Staci Silhan.
Kyle’s pull was 28’6”.
“They have been doing pedal pulls together the whole way and spur each other on to compete well,” said mom Jennifer Epp.
Both will compete at Nationals in the fall.
