UW Women Third at Sheridan College Rodeo

September 26, 2016

When the season started, University of Wyoming Rodeo Coach George Howard said he had at least a dozen good team members in goat tying. The problem: He can only select four Cowgirls each week to make up a team; others can compete as individuals.

That depth proved to be a bonus for the Cowgirls, as a trio of UW goat tying competitors scored all of the team’s points to lead UW to third place at last weekend’s Sheridan College rodeo.

Getting her first call-up to the four-member team, freshman Cori Terry, of McKinnon, took the goat tying’s opening round with a leading 7.4-second time. She placed fifth in the short go to finish fifth in the overall average, scoring a team-leading 100 points.

The Cowgirls’ only senior, Amelia Anderson, of Forsyth, Mont., added 82 more points to the Cowgirls’ total by splitting third place in the short go. She split fourth place with three other competitors in the opening round, while also splitting fourth in the average.

The final 40 team points came from Pavillion’s Josee Vogel. The junior had the third-best time in the opening round but couldn’t break into the short go round’s top six, so she didn’t place in the average.

The Cowgirls trio accounted for 222 points, falling just two points behind the second-place Sheridan College women. Perennial Central Rocky Mountain Region (CRMR) champion Gillette College dominated the weekend rodeo with 572 points. Colorado State University was fourth with 170 points, Eastern Wyoming College scored 65, and the only other team to get on the scoreboard was Lamar Community College with 45.

After a slow opening weekend, the Cowgirls jumped into the region’s overall title chase with 298.7 points through two fall rodeos -- good for third place. With five rodeos scheduled this fall, Gillette College leads the CRMR with 683.7 points, while Sheridan College sits second with 429.

The top two teams in the region automatically send four-member teams to next summer’s College National Finals Rodeo in Casper.

The UW men took a step back -- after finishing third in the season opener -- by scoring just 105 points at Sheridan College. That left the Cowboys eighth in the team standings. The host Generals won their home rodeo with 525 points, while Casper College was a close second with 490 points. Central Wyoming College (CWC) placed third with 400.

Jaden Clark had the best outing last weekend for the Cowboys, placing fourth in the bareback riding average. The Wellfleet, Neb., senior placed in both rounds to score 75 team points.

Miles City, Mont., sophomore Jess Davison was sixth in the bull riding average, while teammate Dusty Taylor, a freshman from Craig, Colo., added 10 points in tie down roping.

Overall, the Cowboys are sixth in the regional standings with 365 points through two competitions. Sheridan College leads the CRMR with 1,035 points, while defending champion Chadron State College has 888. CWC is third with 550.

The CRMR competition moves to the Lamar Community College rodeo this weekend.
