(Neb.)-Tierney improves her average in goat tying
by Con Marshall
Chadron State College senior Amy Tierney of Oral and Hot Springs, S.D., continued to excel in the goat tying Thursday night at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper.
Tierney completed her run in 6.4 seconds and is now tied for fourth in the third go-round. She also is third in the averages with a total time of 19.5 seconds on three runs.
Both of the cowgirls who are ahead of Tierney in the averages are also from the Central Rocky Mountain Region. Jordan Thurston-Miller of Lance Creek, Wyo., and a student at Gillette College has a total time of 18.7 seconds. Hayden Segelke of Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colo., is close behind with a cumulative time of 19.1 seconds.
Tierney is all alone in third place with her 19.5-second total.
Both Thurston-Miller and Segelke had times of 6.2 seconds Thursday
Chadron State’s other entry in the goat tying at the finals rodeo, Shelby Winchell of Scottsbluff, will make her third run tonight (Friday), when the third go-round will conclude. Winchell completed her first two runs in 12.9 seconds, tying her with Segelke for third place at the end of the second go-round.
The top 12 contestants in each of the rodeo’s nine events will advance to the championship round on Saturday night.
