The Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo will feature more than 400 rodeo competitors from 14 colleges and universities who will take part in the last rodeo of the fall semester for the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association's Central Rocky Mountain Region.
Admission for the rodeo performance is free for LCCC students and children 10 years old and younger. The cost is $5 for military, seniors or youth 11-17 years old; and $10 for all others. Three-day passes are available for purchase. Admission to slack is free. For tickets and schedule information, call 307.778.1152. Tickets are also available at the door.
Proceeds from the rodeo will be put toward a scholarship fund established in the memory of Shawn Dubie. Shawn was a saddle bronc rider from Alpena, Mich., by way of Rock Springs, Wyo., who rode for LCCC on a rodeo scholarship but died from injuries sustained while competing in saddle bronc riding. Recipients of the Shawn Dubie Memorial Scholarship must attend LCCC, actively participate on the LCCC Rodeo Team and maintain a 2.0 grade point average.

First Day Results: Simmons, Dailey lead in their events
After the first day of the Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo at LCCC, a pair of Golden Eagles lead their events.
Whitney Simmons is sitting in first place in the goat tying with her 7.2-second run, but there are 40 more contestants yet to run. She has a fast time, so even if she gets bumped out of the top slot, she should be back for the finals on Sunday.
Dustin Dailey has the fastest time in steer wrestling with a 5.0-second run. That’s a smoking run, as well, so his chances are good to get another shot during the finals performance. There are only 16 more steer wrestlers to run.
Linzee Adamson ran a 16.69-second pattern in the barrel racing, and she’s currently in fifth place.
Saturday’s rodeo action starts with slack at 9 a.m., and the evening performance begins at 7 p.m. Finals are at 1 p.m. Sunday.
LCCC students can come watch the evening performance for free. Students need to bring their student ID.

Second Day Results: LCCC riders perform well in Saturday's competition
Two LCCC cowboys had first-place times in the long go at the Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo. Dustin Dailey recorded a 5.0-second time in steer wrestling during the Friday night performance, and his time held through Saturday’s slack and evening performance.
He’ll be back for Sunday’s finals with a head-start on his competition. To win the rodeo, riders have to have the shortest time on two runs (the long go, which includes all the riders entered in the rodeo; and the short go, for which only the riders with the fastest long-go times are eligible).
During Saturday’s slack, LCCC team roping heeler Tate Mathis and Eastern Wyoming College header Cody Colman turned in the fastest team roping run of the rodeo. Mathis and Colman will return Sunday for the finals with their 5.5-second run.
The finals performance begins at 1 p.m. in the LCCC Arena. Students with a current student ID are admitted free.

Finals Results: Men’s LCCC rodeo team takes third at home rodeo
The Laramie County Community College rodeo team hosted the Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo over the weekend. The men’s side had a great performance and finished third overall, while the women finished tied for eighth and ninth. The men’s team is now in seventh place in the Central Rocky Mountain Region, and the women’s team is in ninth.
Chance Englebert had the biggest share of the men’s team’s 335 points. He scored 125 points for LCCC with his second-place finish in bareback riding. He scored a 66 on his first horse and a 72 on his second, for a total of 138.
The team had a strong showing in team roping, as well. Three Golden Eagles made the finals in team roping, and each was paired with another rider from a different school. LCCC’s Trey Yates heeled for Clayton Van Aken from Chadron State College, and Yates and Van Aken finished fourth in the event. They roped their first steer in 6.3 seconds, and they had an 11.0 on their second, for a total time on two of 17.3 seconds. Golden Eagle Tate Mathis, also a heeler, roped with Cody Colman from Eastern Wyoming College, and this duo had the fastest time in the long go with a 5.5-second run. They had some bad luck in the short go, though, and didn’t record a time in the finals. They ended up in fifth place in the average. However, their first-place finish in the long go earned each of them 75 points for their teams.
Also in the team roping, Mattee Pauley from LCCC roped the head, and Sabrina Fanning of Casper College went for the heels. The pair roped their first steer in 6.5 seconds, but were unable to catch in the short go. They finished ninth in the average.
Steer wrestling had good representation from LCCC. Kaycee Greer had two solid times, with a 5.9-second run on his first and 5.3 seconds in the short go, for a total on two of 11.2 seconds. That was good enough for fourth place. Fellow Golden Eagle Dustin Dailey had a 5.0-second run in the long go, which was the fastest time of the first go-around. He missed his short-go steer, though, and fell to ninth in the average, but he still earned 55 points for the LCCC men’s team.
On the women’s side, Linzee Adamson finished in third place in the barrel race with a 16.69 on her first run and a 16.28 on her second, for a total on two of 32.97 seconds.
Whitney Simmons and Bailey Tibbs made it back to the short go in goat tying. Simmons earned her team 7.5 points with her eighth-place finish, recording runs of 7.2 seconds and 7.9 seconds, for a total on two of 15.1. Tibbs had a 7.4 on her first goat and an 8.6 on her second, for a total of 16.0, and a 12th-place finish.
The Golden Eagles rodeo team is now finished for the semester. They’ll start up again in the spring, when they travel to Torrington, Wyoming, March 4-6 for the Eastern Wyoming College rodeo.
