CASPER, Wyo. – Freshman Amy Deichert of Spearfish, S.D., had the best fortune among Chadron State College contestants during opening go-round of the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper on Sunday and Monday.
Deichert tied for fifth and sixth among the 47 entries in the first go-round of the barrel race with a time of 14.34 seconds during slack on Monday. The event leader is Liz Combs of Sam Houston State of Texas in 14.19 seconds.
Chadron State senior Miles Spickelmier of Imperial also had a satisfactory performance. He is 11th among the 40 steer wrestlers with a 5-second flat clocking. The fastest time of the go-round was posted by Lane Santos-Karney of Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo in 3.7 seconds, but everyone else took at least 4 seconds to flip his steer.
Kelsey Scott of Douglas, Wyo., and her team roping partner, Matt Schieck of Sheridan College, completed their run in 21.5 seconds on Monday, putting them 20th among the 43 entries in the event.
Both Scott and Jessie Sturman of Lusk, Wyo., missed their calves in breakaway roping and Katie Loughran of Broken Bow broke the pattern in the barrel race and took a no time.
All the CSC contestants will be competing again today during another round of slack that will conclude the second go-round.
Deichert, Scott in breakaway roping and Scott and Scheick in team roping also will be among the contestants in the first performance tonight starting at 7 p.m. in the Casper Events Center.
The rodeo will run through Saturday night.
