Sheridan College Kicks Off Spring Rodeo Season in Gillette

The first college rodeo of the spring season was held in Gillette on March 20th-22nd.

The Generals didn’t quite have the start of the spring season that they were looking for. Among the team, there were four athletes who made it back to Sunday’s championship round.

For the women’s team, Katy Miller put together a quick run in the goat tying with a time of 7.8 which split 3/4/5 place in the long go. Miller had some tough luck in the short go as the goat kicked free which gave her a no time.
