CASPER, Wyo. – Chadron State College freshman Amy Deichert of Spearfish, S.D., had another good run in the barrel race Tuesday at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, and is in fifth place in the averages after two go-rounds are complete.
Deichert made her way through the cloverleaf pattern in 14.27 seconds Tuesday to share 10th place in the go-round. Her time of 14.34 seconds in the first go-round on Monday tied her for fifth and sixth place among the 47 barrel racers who qualified for the finals rodeo.
“She’s making a show,” CSC rodeo coach Dustin Luper. “The competition is really tough, too. Quite a few of the contestants are riding pro rodeo-caliber horses.”
Deichert will make her third and final run in the preliminaries of the rodeo Tuesday night, when the third go-round begins. At the end of the go-round, which runs through Friday, the top 12 barrel racers in the averages will advance to Saturday night’s finals.
The other Chadron State contestants did not fare well during Tuesday’s slack.
Kelsey Scott roped her calf in 2.3 seconds in the breakaway roping, but broke the barrier and was assessed a 10-second penalty. In addition, she missed her loop during the team roping.
Jessie Sturman also missed in the second go-round of the breakaway roping.
In addition, Miles Spickelmier did not get a time in the second go-round of the steer wrestling after placing 11th in five seconds flat in the first go-round.
CSC’s other freshman barrel racer, Katie Loughran (pronounced Law-horn), had a time of 14.44 seconds on Tuesday. She took a no time in the first go-round when her horse broke the pattern.
