Twenty-four Eastern Wyoming College Lancers competed in the first rodeo of the season over the weekend at the Chadron State College rodeo in Chadron, Nebraska. The Lancers were one of 12 teams competing from Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska.

“The team did well, but have lots of room for improvement,” EWC Rodeo Head Coach Whit Peterson said. “Had some tough draws and hope to take advantage of better ones in the future.”

Eastern Wyoming College team ropers, sophomore Donald Quick III, from Craig, Colorado, and freshman Coy Thar, from Rozet, Wyoming, were ninth in the first round of team roping and 2nd in short round. The team finished 2nd in average.

Sophomore Trace Travincek, from Minatare, Nebraska, split 5th/6th in the 1st round of the calf roping and 7th in the average. He also was 10th in the first round of team roping, and 10th in the average.

Sophomore Colton Zimmerman, from Wellington, Colorado, was 9th in 1st round of calf roping and 10th in the average.

Freshman Seth Glass, from Central City, Nebraska, finished 7th in the first round of team roping and 8th in the average. The men’s team finished the day in fourth position.

Sophomore Ryker Goodman, LaBarge, Wyoming, was 8th in the 1st round of goat tying and 9th in the average.

The barrel racing was postponed until next weekend, because the conditions in the arena were deemed not fit for the competition. The ladies’ team results will not be available until after next weekend’s rodeo in Riverton, Wyoming due to the postponement of the barrel racing.
