The Laramie County Community College rodeo team competed in its third rodeo of the season in Sheridan, Wyoming, at the Sheridan College Rodeo. The men’s side had a great performance and finished second overall, while the women finished ninth.
Junior Blayne Bradley (Brewster, Nebraska) and junior Dustin Dailey (O’Neil, Nebraska) led the way for LCCC. They took second in team roping and earned 110 points. They had a time of 7.3 on the long go and 6.7 in the short go. Senior Chance Englebert (Burdock, South Dakota) had a terrific weekend with a third-place finish in the bull riding with an average of 73. He rode a 73 in the long go, and though he didn’t cover in the short go, he earned the Golden Eagles 80 points. Englebert also took fourth in bareback riding with his score in the long go of 57, which was good enough to earn the team 80 points.
Several Golden Eagles had success in tie-down roping as junior Trey Yates (Pueblo, Colorado) grabbed fourth with an average time of 24.5 – a time of 12.6 in the long go and 11.9 in the short go. Freshman Lance Stevens (Ft. Lupton, Colorado) had a long-go time of 11.8 and no score on the short go, but it was still good enough for seventh. Fellow freshman Tate Mathis (Atkinson, Nebraska) had long-go time of 12.7 and had a ninth-place finish.
Freshman Cameron Fanning (Olivet, South Dakota) placed 10th in steer wrestling with a long-go time of 6.8.
On the women’s side, freshman Kirby Anderson (Grover, Colorado) earned her team 65 points in the Breakaway Roping with a fourth-place finish on her average time of 7.3 (3.5 seconds on her first run and 3.8 in the short go).
