Sheridan College Rodeo Standings

An update on the standings, Sheridan college Men’s team is currently 9th place, with Casper College and UW leading the standings.

The women’s team is 11th place with CWC and NJC in first and second.

Jake Mangis is in 6th place in the team roping, which is very good considering we have been averaging 95 teams at our last 5 rodeos.

He is one of our best competitors and has a good chance to qualify for the CNFR, since his team roping partner had to sit out 3 rodeos at the start of the year, they have placed at every rodeo since they started roping together.
