The University of Wyoming livestock judging team won all six team categories at the Casper College fall contest last weekend after six months with no contests due to COVID-19 concerns.
Ten teams competed from UW, Casper College, Colorado State University, Eastern Wyoming College, Laramie County Community College and Northeastern Junior College, of Sterling, Colo.
Tanner Wright, of Laramie, was named high individual overall, and Jess Moody, of Big Timber, Mont., was second high individual overall. Chase Markel, of Wheatland; Tell Belton and Hallie Myhre, both from Steamboat Springs, Colo.; and Amy Newman, of Fort Collins, Colo., all placed within the top 10 individually.
“The team is excited to head to the first out-of-state contest since March this weekend with contests in Kansas and Nebraska,” says Caleb Boardman, UW livestock judging coach.
In mid-October, the team will compete at the American Royal in Kansas City, Mo., and finish the season at the national contest in Louisville, Ky.
The team is coached by Boardman and Assistant Coach Laurel Despain.
