This past weekend the Sheridan College Rodeo Team traveled to Ft. Collins, CO. On the women's side, sophomore Jayne Lauweryssen had an awesome long round run in the goat tying with a 6.6 seconds.
However, her goat got up in the short round resulting in a no time. Jayne earned 50 pts. She also did well in the breakaway roping placing 8th in the long round with a time of 3.4 seconds and placing 2nd in the short round with a time of 4.2 seconds. She ended up 3rd in the average earning 90 points.
The barrel racing was very tough this weekend and our girls were all in the hunt but didn't qualify for the short round. Allie Novotny, Cassidy Mutchler, Annie Novotny, Shelby Newman, and Lexy Williams all had great runs under 16 seconds.
On the men's side, the bronc riders performed well. There were only 6 qualified rides in the long round and 3 of them were generals. Tayte Clark, Sutton Sandquist, and Kash Deal all qualified for the short round. Tayte rose to the occasion with hurt ribs and rode his long round horse for 60 points and 4th place.
He had a really nice ride in the short round for 74 points and 2nd in the round and ended up 3rd in the average, earning a total of 120 points. Kash was 57 points in the long round but failed to mark his horse out in the short round but ended up 5th in the average. Sutton got by his long round horse and tried hard for 52 points, but got bucked off his short round horse.
Teammate Logan Schaper qualified for the short round in the tie down roping with a time of 12.4 seconds and rode a little early in the short round breaking the barrier and turning in a time of 20.5 seconds. Logan just missed the money placing 7th in the average.
Overall the men's team earned 160 team points. They are currently tied for 3rd place in the region. Sophomore Taygen Schuelke did not compete this weekend as he was at the RNCRF in Guthrie, OK. We are looking forward to him competing in Casper.
The women's team earned a total of 140 team points and are sitting 5th in the region.
They are looking forward to traveling to Casper after the Easter weekend. The men's team is chasing 2nd place to qualify for the CNFR as a team.
