A team member won top individual, and no other team had more members place in the top 10 than the University of Wyoming livestock judging team last week at the Aksarben collegiate contest in Grand Island, Neb.

“The team is off to a strong start with a third overall team finish at the Aksarben contest,” Coach Curtis Doubet says.

Kemsley Gallegos, of Laramie, claimed high individual overall. Holly Heckendorf, of Wellington, Colo., was sixth high individual, and Justin Doubet, of Parker, Colo, was eighth high individual overall.

UW was high team in sheep, second high team in cattle, third high in goats and fourth high in team reasons.

The team competes in Hutchinson, Kan., this week at the Flint Hills livestock judging contest before hitting the road again next week to the intercollegiate livestock judging contest during the state fair in Tulsa, Okla.

Other team members are Cooper Carlson, from Atwood, Colo.; McKenna Carnahan, of Julesburg, Colo.; Macy Collins, from Meeker, Colo.; Zach Davis, of Sebastopol, Calif.; Grace Gullatt, from Salem, Ala.; Kenzie Morris, of Yuma, Colo.; and Jacey Taylor, from Montrose, Colo.
