Posted By: Bret Franks - 2/2/2016 12:00:00 AM

The Clarendon College Rodeo Team started off slow this fall not garnishing a point at the first rodeo in Portales.

Everyone competed well but we came up short. We started to warm up a little in Alpine at the second rodeo. Wyatt Casper was 3rd in the saddle bronc riding and 6th in the team roping Wyatt gathered 140 pts for the team,getting the reserve all around contestant at the rodeo and placing the entire team in the top 10 out of the 17 schools represented there.

At the third rodeo held in Vernon Wyatt Casper ended up 4th in the Saddle bronc riding earning 70 points for the team putting us in the top ten again. The next rodeo we co-hosted with FPC and WTAMU in Perryton where Wyatt once again proved his worth to the team by winning 2nd in the saddle bronc riding, 2nd in the team roping, 2nd in the all around. He earned 210 points for the team and placed us 6th high team. Megan Mclain added a spark by Qualifying for the short round in the barrel racing but hit a barrel to knock her out of placing and earning points.

At the last rodeo of the fall semester, Wyatt Casper split 2nd and 3rd in the saddle bronc riding, gaining 140 pts for the team, good enough to place us 8th high team in Lubbock. We are currently the 10th place team in the southwest region and have been practicing hard to improve our standing.
