“We had a great rodeo at CSU which put our men’s team back into first place in the regional standings.  This region is very competitive.  It will come down to the last rodeo to see who qualifies for the finals,” shared Coach Jake Clark.  “Several of our students have moved up in the standings.  The top three in each event  will qualify for the CNFR.”
The EWC rodeo team will host the annual Lancer Rodeo on April 5th, 6th and 7th at the Goshen County Pavilion.
