UW Cowboys, Cowgirls All but Wrap Up Third Straight Regional Rodeo Team Titles

April 19, 2021

It’s probably safe to say that both of the University of Wyoming rodeo teams can be called the three-time regional champions with just two events left in the season.

After another solid performance at the weekend Casper College Ropin’ and Riggin’ Days Rodeo, the UW men and women all but clinched their third straight Central Rocky Mountain Region (CRMR) team titles. With just the home rodeo and the Colorado State University (CSU) event left on the 10-rodeo fall and spring schedules, Coach Beau Clark’s teams both hold insurmountable leads.

The Cowboys own a 1,376.5-point lead over Gillette College, while the women are running away with a 1,213.35-point advantage over runner-up Chadron State College (CSC).

The Cowgirls had their most complete performance to date in rolling up 500 team points to capture the Casper College rodeo, while the men finished a close second to team winner Gillette College.

Top-Five Women’s Team Scores
