The Eastern Wyoming College (EWC) Rodeo Team competed this past weekend at the Sheridan College Rodeo.
Freshman Wyatt Clark, of Wellfleet, Neb., won third in the first round of the bareback riding and finished fourth in the average. Cody Sierks, of Brewster, Neb. placed fourth in the first round of the bull riding. “Wyatt and Cody continue to be consistent and that is so important on the regional level,” Jake Clark, EWC Rodeo Coach, said. “Every rodeo counts.”
The Lancers had two student athletes finish in the top ten of the steer wrestling. They were Logan McDonald, of Hemingford, Neb. and Jake Kraupie, of Bridgeport, Neb. For the women’s team, freshman Charlie Opela, of Stapleton, Neb., finished second in the short round and second in the average in the breakaway roping. Sophomore Kaylee Moyer, of Simla, Colo., finished fourth in the short round and fourth in the average in the goat tying.
“The women’s team is starting to establish themselves just finishing ten points out of first at Sheridan’s rodeo,” Clark said. “I feel really good about their chances this year.” The EWC Lancer Rodeo Team will compete at the Lamar College Rodeo in Lamar, Colo. Oct. 2-4.
