Scott is in top roper spot
Chadron State College rodeo’s Kelsey Scott junior of Douglas, Wyo., is again in the top spot in the Central Rocky Mountain Region for breakaway roping. She claimed the title for the fall half of the season with 265 points.
“I will Rodeo all my life,” Scott said.
Scott placed first in breakaway roping and won both go-rounds this weekend.
Scott was the only competitor to catch a calf in less than 3 seconds, according to CSC sports information.
The rodeo team competed this weekend at the Skyline Stampede hosted by Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo.
“Rodeo is a very humbling sport,” Hardan Kraupie, junior of Bridgeport said. “One day you can feel as if you’re on top of the world and when you go to the next rodeo and don’t do as good, you feel like you could of.”
Gillette College’s men’s and women’s teams received first overall. The men placed with 645 points and the women with 315 points.
The CSC women’s team placed third with a total of 180 points. The men’s team placed fifth with 300 points.
“I expect the men’s team to step up,” Coach Dustin Luper said. “They did really well at the Colorado State rodeo and if the woman’s team can move up to second we can take a team to National finals.”
Kraupie placed fifth in saddle bronc riding with 129 points.
Justin Ellis, junior of Kirby, Wyo., placed third for bull riding with 70 points.
Miles Spicklelmier, junior of Imperial, placed fourth in steer wrestling with 10 seconds and Tyrel Bonnet, junior of Newell S.D., placed fifth with 10.3 seconds.
The team will compete on April 15 at Casper College Rodeo in Casper, Wyo.
