The Casper College Men’s Rodeo team is still in second place following Casper College’s own Ropin’ and Riggin’ Days Rodeo April 14-16.

The Thunderbird men headed into the rodeo in second place in the Central Rocky Mountain Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. The T-Birds earned an additional 280 points, bringing them to 4,230 total points. The team is 1,551.66 points behind the first-place University of Wyoming Cowboys and 660 points ahead of the third-place Laramie County Community College Golden Eagles.

Braden Brost moved from fifth place in the men’s all-around to fourth place and now has 815 points in the region. In tie down roping, he is fourth with 365 points. He and fellow T-Bird Weston Mills earned 264.60 points in team roping and still maintain a third-place standing in the regionals with 450 total points.

In saddle bronc riding, Casper continues to claim eight spots in the field of 15, including James Perrin, still in second place with 550 points and Kasey Rosendahl in third place with 475 points. In bareback riding, Myles Carlson still holds first place in the region with 1,225 points.

In team roping, Casper’s Carson Johnson, 785 points, and Bodie Mattson from the University of Wyoming, 605 points, hold the number one position in the region. Casper’s Kolby Bradley, 390 points, and Tanner McInerney from Gillette College, 340 points, are in fourth.

The Thunderbirds have one more rodeo this weekend at the University of Wyoming. The top two schools in the region will send full six-man and four-woman teams to the year-end College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, but the top three scorers in each event will also head to the CNFR to compete for their school. If the men continue to do well, fans will be able to see several Casper College T-Birds represent the college and community at the CNFR June 11-17 at the Ford Wyoming Center in Casper.
