Both UW Rodeo Teams Place High at Colorado Competition

October 3, 2016

In their best outings of the young fall season, both University of Wyoming rodeo teams placed among the top three in their respective competitions.

The UW Cowgirls moved into second place in the overall Central Rocky Mountain Region (CRMR) standings, scoring heavily in two of the women’s events at the Lamar (Colo.) Community College last weekend. The UW women notched a season-best 325 points to challenge regional leader Gillette College, which netted 375 points. Northeastern Junior College (Sterling, Colo.) placed third with 210 points, while Chadron State College scored 205. Casper College rounded out the top five finishers with 160 team points.

With a revamped lineup, the Cowgirls received production from some of the newcomers.

The UW women scored 210 points in goat tying when a pair of Cowgirls finished among the top four in the average.

Freshman Cori Terry, of McKinnon, was third in the average and was boosted when she split second in the short go. Teammate Amelia Anderson, the veteran of the four-member women’s team, scored 115 points for the team by winning the opening round, while also placing fourth in the short go. The Forsythe, Mont., senior placed fourth in the overall average.

Another Wyoming native, Casey Reimler, made good on her first competition on the four-member Cowgirls team selected by Coach George Howard. The Rozet junior scored the team’s final 115 points when she placed second in the breakaway roping average. Reimler had the second-best time in the short go.

For the season, the Gillette College women are solidly winning the region with 1,058.7 points, while the Cowgirls moved into the coveted second-place position with 623.7 points. Sheridan College is third at 524.

Only the top two teams in the women’s and men’s CRMR competitions send full teams to the College National Finals Rodeo next summer in Casper.

Like their women counterparts, the UW men wrapped up their most successful weekend to date with 365 points, good enough to vault the Cowboys into third place. Gillette College won the weekend rodeo with 570 points, while Sheridan College remained strong in the overall team standings with 460 points. Casper College was a close fourth to the Cowboys with 360 points, and fifth went to Laramie County Community College with 300.

Competing on the starting lineup for the second week, Dusty Taylor, a freshman from Craig, Colo., and his brother, Denton Taylor, a sophomore, captured the team roping competition. The pair won the overall average after splitting second in the short go. They also were third in the opening round of competition.

Miles City, Mont., sophomore Jess Davison turned in a strong performance in steer wrestling, placing second in the average to score 100 points for the team.

Jaden Clark, the team’s most consistent performer this fall, continued to add points in bareback riding. He added 80 points by finishing fourth in the average. The Wellfleet, Neb., senior had the second-best ride in the opening round.

And final scoring came from junior Wyatt Hageman, of Jay Em, who added fifth-place points in saddle bronc riding.

The Pokes remain in sixth place in the regional standings with 730 points. Sheridan College, having its best season in years, leads the pack with 1,495 points, while Gillette College is second with 1,040. Defending CRMR champion Chadron State has 1,028 points, Casper College is fourth with 860, and Central Wyoming College (CWC) is fifth with 740.

CWC hosts this weekend’s regional rodeo.
