CASPER, Wyo. - Chadron State cowboy Dakota Rice scored on just one of his 4 bulls at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, but that was good enough to finish 8th. Rice posted his score in the 2nd round, getting a 75.5 from the judges.
Only 7 of this year's 40 bull riders scored in 2 rounds and none had 3 successful rides. 11 stayed on for the full 8 seconds in the 1st round, 6 in the 2nd round, and only 3 in both the 3rd round and the short-go round finals.
Cole Melancon of Hill College posted an 85 in the finals, the top score of the week, to vault to the title with a 161.5 after having been tied for 4th in the opening round and getting thrown in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.
