UW Women’s Rodeo Team Remains Steady

September 28, 2015

The University of Wyoming women’s rodeo team continues to be a surprising Central Rocky Mountain Region (CRMR) contender this season.

After usually being out of the regional running during the first month of the season the past few years, the Cowgirls remained in contention with another strong finish at last weekend’s Sheridan College rodeo.

The UW women scored 215 points to place third overall with just two CRMR rodeos remaining on the fall schedule. But, just as important, the Cowgirls are still staying in contention for a College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR) bid.

The Cowgirls are in fourth place overall in the CRMR standings with 685 points and are chasing the leaders. Only the top two teams from the region send full four-women teams to the CNFR. Northeastern Junior College (NJC) of Sterling, Colo., took over the overall lead by winning last weekend.

Northeastern has 903.3 points on the season, reigning regional champion Gillette College is second with 853.3 and Lamar Community College (LCC) slipped to third place with 778.3 points -- just 83.3 points ahead of the Cowgirls.

NJC easily won the Sheridan College rodeo with a season-best 540 points, while Gillette College was second with 230 points -- only 15 ahead of the UW women.

The Cowgirls received production from a pair of teammates at the Sheridan College competition -- the pair are among the top regional competitors in their respective events.

Kailee Webb, from Isabel, S.D., turned in a third-place performance in barrel racing with a pair of steady turns. The UW sophomore is just 20 points out of second place in the overall regional point standings.

Teammate Josee Vogel split fourth place in goat tying thanks to second-place points in the opening round of competition. The sophomore, from Pavillion, is now tied for fourth in the regional goat tying standings with teammate Amelia Anderson, of Forsythe, Mont.

The UW Cowboys had a rough outing in Sheridan with a season-low 110 points that put the Pokes ninth in the team standings. Chadron State College (CSC) continued its strong start by winning the third CRMR rodeo with a team-best 595 points. Laramie County Community College was next with 465 points, and Casper College was third with 450.

Just one UW team member managed to score points for the Pokes.

Brock Wahlert was among just three riders to cover on two successful rounds and placed third in the bareback riding average. The Casper sophomore scored 110 points in the event, but other than that, the remaining five UW team members were shut out over the weekend.

For the season, the Cowboys slipped to fourth place in the regional standings with 1,015 points after three fall events. CSC leads the pack with 1,535 points, Eastern Wyoming College is second with 1,147.5 points and Gillette College is one place ahead of the UW men with 1,130.

Both UW teams will be in Lamar, Colo., this weekend for the LCC rodeo.
