Last weekend the Chardon State rodeo team traveled to an event hosted by Lamar Community College in Lamar, Colo. Although no Eagle contestant placed first or second, CSC did finish with eight members placed between third and sixth.

Steer wrestling and tie down roping provided 4 places for Chadron State. Seniors Tyrel Bonett, of Newell, S.D., and Miles Spickelmier, of Imperial, finished third and fourth in the steer wrestling event. Bonett posted times of 5.9 and 5.0 seconds while Spickelmier finished with times of 6.2 and 5.6 seconds.

In tie down roping, freshman Lane Day, freshman of Bartlett, and Bridger Chytka, graduate student of Hemingford, both placed. With a time of 9.7 seconds Day found himself in first place after the first go-round but with a time of 12.8 in the second go-round ended up finishing in fourth place. Chytka had times of 11.2 and 11.8, which were good enough to finish in sixth place.

Chadron State had two cowgirls who finished third in their events. In breakaway roping sophomore Kaycee Werdel, of Chadron, had times of 3.2 and 12.4. On her second run, Werdel was in good position to take first but broke the barrier and ended up having to settle for third place.

In her first rodeo with Chadron State after transferring from the University of New Mexico Highlands, senior Randa Calbaugh finished with times of 8.6 and 8.2 in goat tying, which was good enough to finish third.

Two cowboys placed in rough stock events for the Eagles. In bareback riding, freshman Collin Chytka, of Broken Bow, turned in scores of 59 and 64, which placed him in fourth place. In the bull riding event, senior Justin Ellis, of Kirby, Wyo., turned in a score of 63 points on his first ride but was bucked off in the finals. After most of the other bull riders were bucked off, Ellis’ score was good enough to finish in third place.

The Chadron State rodeo team will travel to Cheyenne, Wyo., next weekend for an event hosted by Laramie County Community College.
