The Sheridan College rodeo team competed in Chadron, NE this past weekend.

The women’s team placed fourth with 190 points. Callie Robinson made it back to the short round in the breakaway roping and the barrel racing with a fast time in the breakaway of 2.5 seconds splitting 4th and 5th. In the short round on Sunday Callie roped her calf in 4.0 seconds to earn a 3rd place finish and that put her 2nd in the average for a total of 115 points.

In the barrel racing Callie made it back in the 8th and 9th hole with a time of 17.05 seconds, but she hit a barrel in the short round.

Calby Hanson made it back in the goat tying with a time of 7.6 she split 5th and 6th in the long round. In the short round Calby matched her time with another 7.6 second run which placed her 4th in the short round and 4th in the average.

The women’s team showed up and competed hard this weekend, Breanna Reimler missed the short round in the breakaway by 1/10th of a second; Savanna Bolich and Kaylee Reimler were just out of the breakaway as well.

The men’s team did not have a very good weekend again; fortunately we had Freshman Sam Thurston step up and win the long round with a 66 point ride in the saddle bronc riding.

Sam was unable to cover his short round horse, but is doing quite well considering he just started riding broncs this past summer, so what he lacks in experience he makes up for with try.

Weston Hartman showed a ton of try and heart this weekend in the bull riding, he was bucked off 3 times but managed to get back in the middle of the bull and bring the crowd to their feet with his effort, he placed 4th and 5th in the long round with at 72pt ride.

Weston showed a lot of heart in the short round as well but was unable to get his bull rode.

Kash Deal made the short round in the saddle bronc riding with a score of 52 pts which placed him 5th in the round.

Kash was unable to get his short round bronc rode, but placed 5th in the average.

The men’s team will be better focused this coming week after a team meeting last night that left no doubt in anyone’s mind that they need to do better.

We will be competing at home this week at the Pat Hamilton Memorial Rodeo.
