The last college rodeo of the spring season in the Central Rocky Mountain Region started yesterday in Laramie hosted by the University of Wyoming (UW) whose women’s UWYO Rodeo Team goes into the weekend #2 thus in a qualifying spot for the national finals. Gillette College Rodeo Team is way out in front of everyone in the women’s competition with a lead of more than a thousand points over the field. A pair of their best is featured on our video highlights having finished first in two events at Ropin’ & Riggin’ Days in Casper last weekend leading the Pronghorn girls to another team victory.
Sheridan College has a significant lead in the men’s regional competition with Gillette in second place. The top two finishers advance as a team to the College National Finals Rodeo in June. Generals’ bareback rider Hunter Carlson, a high school standout from Douglas, WY, won the Casper event and in so doing clinched the regional title for the year. His personal title information in our video is listed in black for a reason due to the redhead recently adopting a new look.
We also have the winning Laramie County Community College (LCCC) steer wrestler from last weekend in Casper. Gage Greer is now just ten points out of the lead in the region behind Casper College’s Jake Fulton. The top three individual finishers qualify for national finals berths. Central Wyoming College will more than likely have representation at the finals no matter what happens this weekend because Rustler steer wrestlers now occupy 3rd through 5th place in the region.
A freshman bronc rider, Kolt Ferguson from Australia was high man in Casper spurring for the UW Cowboys. We begin with two Gillette girls who have proven to be the best in the region all season: Quincy Segelke and Rickie Engesser The rodeo concludes Saturday night with the Central Rocky Mountain Region champions and CNFR qualifiers decided.
