BUTTE - Highlands College in Butte held a rodeo Friday morning, but it's not your typical Montana rodeo.

The line rodeo held in Butte involved students in the college's lineman program demonstrating their high-climbing skills by doing tasks on utility poles as high as 80 feet in the air.

The friendly competition was a way for graduates of the pre-apprentice line program to show off their skills before family and friends.

Highlands College and Montana Tech will hold the spring graduation commencement ceremony Saturday at the HPER complex.
