With just 11 contestants remaining to make their third and final run tonight, Chadron State College cowgirl Amy Deichert (Die-kirt) is in third place in the barrel racing standings at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper.
The leader in the averages remains Liz Combs of Sam Houston State University in Texas with a cumulative time of 42.56 seconds. Jade Crossley of Blue Mountain College at Pendleton, Ore., moved into second place Thursday night with a total time of 42.65 seconds while Deichert is third in 42.68 seconds on her three runs.
Two of tonight’s contestants, Hayden Segelke of Northeastern Junior College at Sterling, Colo., and Emily Miller of Garden City Community College in Kansas, had outstanding times in the first two go-rounds and have a chance to move into one of the top spots in the overall standings. However, it appears to be impossible for any of the others to move past Deichert on the leader board.
The top 12 contestants in all nine rodeo events will compete in the finals Saturday night.
Deichert is a freshman at Chadron State from Spearfish, S.D. Her time of 14.07 in the opening session of the third go-round on Tuesday night is the third fastest time in the go-round. She also tied for fifth and sixth in the first go-round in 14.34 seconds and shared 10th in the second go-round in 14.27 seconds.
