The Thunderbirds used another strong showing in team roping and a first-place finish by K’s Thomson in saddle bronc riding to total 630 points and win the team title at the second Central Rocky Mountain Region rodeo of the season.

Brothers Kellan and Carson Johnson won the team roping with a time of 11.6 seconds. The team of Clayton Backhaus and Beau Rees was third with a 12.4, and Cooper White and Jerren Johnson were fifth with a 13.0. In addition, Bryan Lemmon teamed with the University of Wyoming’s Jase Staudt to place fourth with a 12.8.

Chadron State College was second in the team race with 380 points, Gillette College was third with 345, and Wyoming was fourth with 295.

UW’s Seth Peterson finished first in both steer wrestling and tie-down roping and teamed with Dusty Taylor to place second in team roping to easily win the all-around title. Other event winners were Chadron State’s Kyle Bloomquist in bareback bronc riding and Sheridan College’s Coby Johnson in bull riding.

On the women’s side, the Wyoming Cowgirls used a first-place finish from Justene Hirsig in breakaway roping and numerous top-5 finishes to easily win the team title.

UW totaled 470 points, followed by Casper College with 265 and Eastern Wyoming College with 170.

The T-Birds’ Jenna Hoffman won the barrel racing and Eastern Wyoming’s Karissa Rayhill won the goat tying, but the Cowgirls placed third through fifth in barrel racing and second through fifth in goat tying to take the lead in the regional standings.
