COLUMBUS, Ind. — The announcement drew chuckles from the audience and prompted a prediction from one amused onlooker that Katie Schmidt, 18, would probably win the championship.

Schmidt, 18, would face the formidable Katie Schmidt and the incomparable Katie Schmidt for top honors in the Romney sheep breed competition at Wednesday's 4-H Sheep Show.
