(Neb.)-CSC Cowgirl Holds On To Third Place In Barrel Racing Standings
Not much changed in the barrel racing standings at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper on Friday night, meaning that Chadron State College freshman Amy Deichert (Die-kirt) of Spearfish, S.D., will enter tonight’s finals third in the aggregate standings.
Both of the cowgirls with a chance of moving to the top of the standings in the last performance of the third go-round Friday night knocked over barrels and thus knocked themselves out of the finals.
That leaves Liz Combs of Sam Houston State of Texas at the top of the standings with a cumulative time of 42.56 seconds, followed by Jade Crossley of Blue Mountain College of Oregon at 42.65 and Deichert in third place at 42.68—just 12 hundredths of a second behind Combs.
Tonight’s finals, which will start at 7 o’clock, will feature the top 12 contestants in each of the nine events at the end of the three go-rounds.
Another Chadron State contestant, senior Miles Spickelmier of Imperial, did not make the finals after missing his steer in the second go-round, but he won the third go-round with a dramatic time of 3.6 seconds. CSC sophomore Jessie Sturman of Lusk, Wyo., finished eighth in the third go-round of the breakaway roping in 2.8 seconds.
