The weather conditions were unfavorable, the Sheridan College Men’s team placed 3rd this weekend behind the University of Wyoming who won the event and Gillette College. The Women’s team placed 5th this weekend.

The weather conditions were cold and rainy on Friday and with no facility to move the rodeo too, the coaches and judges decided to postpone the rodeo on Friday.

They were able to have the whole long round on Saturday, with the help of Devon Smith, Cody Wulff and the Sheridan College Rodeo team the rodeo went off without a problem.
