UW’s Hageman Fails to Mark in Opening CNFR Round

June 12, 2017

Just eight-tenths of a second.

That’s all the time University of Wyoming saddle bronc rider Wyatt Hageman needed to record an 8-second qualified ride in the opening round of the College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR) in Casper Sunday afternoon.

The Jay Em junior was tossed at the 7.28-second mark by Frontier Rodeo Co.’s “Molly Brown” and failed to mark in the “Bulls, Broncs and Breakaway” afternoon performance to close out the first CNFR round in the Casper Events Center.

The performance featured all bronc and bull riding competitors, and women’s breakaway roping national qualifiers.

Hageman was the only UW qualifier to compete in Sunday’s first performance of the weeklong rodeo that features nearly 400 competitors representing 11 national regions.

“He was on his way to a nice 70-something-point ride when he hung a foot and got bucked off,” says UW Coach George Howard. “His horse started to buck harder and harder at the end, and it loosened Wyatt up, and he just got bucked off close to the end.”

All of UW’s team members will be in action today, including the four-member UW women’s team.

The Cowgirls, who placed second this past season in the Central Rocky Mountain Region, will have three team members competing in goat tying: Amelia Anderson, a Forsyth, Mont., senior; Cori Terry, a McKinnon freshman; and junior Casey Reimler, from Rozet. Also competing in Monday’s slack is junior Kailee Webb, from Isabel, S.D.

Hageman is up again in the second round of saddle bronc riding during today’s slack. Competing in the first round of team roping will be Denton and Dusty Taylor, team roping brothers, from Craig, Colo.

Hageman still is not yet officially eliminated from reaching Saturday night’s championship round, but he can’t afford another no-score.

“I just told him not to worry about what happened today (Sunday),” Howard says. “I told him just go out there, have fun, and you’ll be fine.”
