The Rustlers traveled to Lamar, Colorado this past weekend for the fourth rodeo of the Fall season. The long trip down there was worth it after getting four back to the short round, and two of them placing deep in the average.
The women's team was led by Myra Rudolph who placed third in the average in the Breakaway Roping, with a total time of 7.6 seconds on two head. She roped her long round calf in 3.1 seconds which was fast enough to split fifth and sixth. Her 4.5 second run in the short round moved her to a third place finish in the round. Shelby Weltz also made it back to the short round in the Goat Tying after tying her long round goat in 9.3, which placed her seventh in the long round. Unfortunately, she had a little bobble flanking her short round goat and fumbled her tie causing her to be 12.1 which dropped her to tenth in the average with a time of 21.4 on two head.
Cole Trainor led the way for the men's team after winning the long round in the Steer Wresting with a 5.0 second run. He then followed that up with a 6.6 in the short round, which placed fourth in the round, but more importantly he placed second in the average with a total time of 11.6 seconds. Rickey Williams received a no score in the first round after getting bucked off, but was able to hang on to his second one for a score of 53 which placed him fourth in the round.
"This was a great rodeo and confidence builder for the entire team," said Coach Schrock. "We had four come back to the short round on Sunday, and two of them capitalized on the stock that they drew and the position they came back in. Not only that, but again we had four others that were just a couple places out of making it back, which continues to keep them hungry and believing that they are capable. For the most part, this is a really young team and I am excited to see how competitive and hungry they still are after a long fall season. They show up to every workout, practice, and class each day and give it one hundred percent. We have one more rodeo this weekend in Cheyenne, and then we will take a couple of weeks off so that they can get caught up in their classes before we start into winter practice that will run through the semester and right up into spring rodeos in March."
