Wasco County's Queen

Layla Bates
Wasco County's Queen for the 2022 
Wasco County Fair


Lyla Bates is the 19-year-old daughter of Sara Bartlet and Clay Bates. Lyla, known to her friends as Danny, currently resides in Tygh Valley Oregon. Lyla enjoys working with youth at Camp Morrow, riding her horses, and living the country life to the fullest. She will graduate Spring of 2022 from Maupin High School, and plans to either make her way back to the family ranch in Eastern Oregon, or head to Texas to learn more about colt starting at Coats Saddlery after graduation. Lyla is so excited to represent Wasco County Fair and Rodeo for 2022.

She loves the western way of life, and is honored to live it with her sidekicks, Bacon and Howard, as her steady mounts and best friends. Lyla looks forward to meeting you all during her reign, and wants everyone to Celebrate the Bounty of our County at the Wasco County Fair and Rodeo 2022!
