A winning performance by barrel racer Kailee Webb at last weekend’s Colorado State University rodeo has lifted the University of Wyoming women’s rodeo team back into second place in the Central Rocky Mountain Region (CRMR) standings.
Webb, of Isabel, S.D., took first in the first round, second in the second round and first in the average to score a total of 170 points in barrel racing.
The goat-tying duo of Amelia Anderson, of Forsyth, Mont., and Karlee Peterson, of Sturgis, S.D., added 60 team points to give the Cowgirls 230 on the weekend -- with Anderson taking fifth and Peterson sixth in the average. That placed UW third behind Gillette College (293.3) and Sheridan College (233.3).
For the season, however, the Cowgirls have moved back ahead of Northeastern Junior College (Sterling, Colo.) in the team standings. Gillette College leads with 2,371.6 points, followed by UW with 1,695 and Northeastern with 1,648.3.
Only the top two teams in the final regional standings send full teams to the year-end College National Finals Rodeo.
UW’s men, meanwhile, finished fifth at the CSU rodeo with 330 points, behind Chadron State (405), Eastern Wyoming College (390), Sheridan College (365) and Casper College (340).
The team-roping duos of Lane Hageman/Brody Serres and Brady Merritt/Reed Merritt were the leading point scorers for the Cowboys. Hageman and Serres, both of Goshen County, took fourth in the first round, split third in the second round and finished third in the average. Cousins Brady (Fort Collins, Colo.) and Reed Merritt (Greeley, Colo.) took fifth in the first round, split third in the second round and finished fourth in the average.
Brock Wahlert, of Casper, finished fourth in bareback riding average after taking fourth in the first round and splitting fourth in the second round. Steer wrestler Dillon Simonson, of Purdum, Neb., took first in the first round, but didn’t score in the second round. He still leads the region’s steer wrestling standings for the season.
As a team, the Cowboys stand in sixth place in the CRMR with 2,210 points, trailing Chadron (3,995), Gillette (2,630), Eastern Wyoming (2,587.5), Casper (2,423.3) and Laramie County Community College (2,358).
CRMR action continues this weekend at Casper College.
