The Gillette College men’s and women’s rodeo teams lead the team standings heading into the final four rodeos of the Central Rocky Mountain Region season. The CRMR spring season continues this weekend at the Eastern Wyoming College Rodeo in Torrington.
The Gillette College women’s team totaled 550 points to win its home rodeo last weekend and push its lead over the second-place University of Wyoming Cowgirls to more than 1,000 points. The Pronghorns currently have 2,560 points to 1,475 for UW. Eastern Wyoming College is third with 1,140.3 points and Central Wyoming College is fourth with 905.
Gillette’s Rickie Engesser sits atop the breakaway roping standings, is second in barrel racing and eighth in goat tying to lead the all-around standings. Teammate Taylour Latham, who is second in goat tying and fifth in breakaway, is second in the all-around. Also for the Pronghorns, Riley Addington leads the barrel racing and Quincy Segelke is third in breakaway.
The men’s team standings have seen some changes at the top this spring, with Gillette College (2,205 points) and Laramie County Community College (2,190) both overtaking Sheridan College (2,110), with Casper College (2,050) and Chadron State College (1,960) also in the mix.
Gillette College only has one event leader – freshman Kellan Johnson and partner Trey Yates of Casper College in team roping – but the Pronghorns have top-five competitors in saddle bronc and team roping.
The CRMR spring season continues in two weeks at the Colorado State Rodeo in Fort Collins, Colorado.
