CNFR: Saturday

Tarleton State tie-down roper Haven Meged jumps off his horse on his way to winning the national championship during the championship round of the College National Finals Rodeo on June 15 at the Casper Events Center.

Ty Blasingame, who currently lists Casper as his hometown, continues to lead the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association team roping header standings.

Blasingame teamed with heeler Kyle Lockett to pocket more than $50,000 by winning RodeoHouston in mid-March and currently has won more than $73,000 with Cowboy Christmas just around the corner.

Three Wyoming cowboys are currently outside the Top 15 in the world standings, with Ranchester's Seth Hardwick No. 20 in bareback bronc riding, Hillsdale's Brody Cress No. 31 in saddle bronc riding, and Sheridan's Devan Reilly No. 47 in bareback.

Former Casper College team roper Trey Yates, who won the National Finals Rodeo with Aaron Tsinigine and the College National Finals Rodeo with Kellan Johnson last year, is currently No. 14 in the heeler standings.

Other recent CNFR champions finding success on the PRCA circuit are 2019 bull riding champ Daylon Swearingen, who is No. 7 in the all-around and No. 23 in bull riding; 2019 tie-down roping winner Haven Meged, who is No. 6; and 2018 tie-down champ Ty Harris, who is No. 14.
