(Neb.)-CSC Contestants Ride High at Sheridan Rodeo
SHERIDAN, Wyo. - Chadron State College contestants won a first, a second, a third and a fourth over the weekend at the Sheridan College rodeo in Wyoming.
The first was claimed by freshman Collin Chytka (Chit-ka) of Broken Bow. He won both go-rounds of the steer wrestling in 6.0 and 6.5 seconds to also win the overall title.
The second in the averages was posted by standout bareback rider Whitten Hoover of Ainsworth. He scored 74 points on his first bronc to place second in the go-round and 70 points on the second to place fourth in the go-round. Through the first three rodeos in the Central Rocky Mountain Region this fall, Hoover has placed first, third and second, respectively.
Miles Spickelmier of Imperial earned the third for the Chadron State team in the steer wrestling. His times were 7.6 and 10.4 seconds. He placed second in the opening go-round and about eighth in the finals.
Also placing for CSC was Kaylee Gallino of Wasta, S.D., in the barrel race. She had times of 17.82 and 17.85 seconds to finish third and fourth in the go-rounds and fourth overall.
Another cowgirl from South Dakota, Lisa Vroman of Buffalo, won the first go-round of the breakaway roping in 3.3 seconds and had another fast time in the finals. However, besides catching the second calf around the neck, she also picked up a front leg, making the catch illegal.
Other CSC contestants placing among the top 10 in the first go-round and reaching the finals were Hoover in bullriding, Kelsey Scott of Douglas, Wyo., in goat tying and saddle bronc riders Zane Smith of Broken Bow and Casey Albright of Dubois, Wyo. None of them had a mark on their second attempts.
The action in the region this coming weekend will be at Lamar College in Colorado.
