SHERIDAN, Wyo. – Chadron State College cowgirls swept the top two honors in the goat tying at the Sheridan College rodeo over the weekend.
Amy Tierney of Oral, S.D., won both go-rounds and the average with times of 7.8 and 7.5 seconds. Shelby Winchell of Scottsbluff was second in both go-rounds and the average with identical marks of 7.9 seconds.
Both Tierney and Winchell are seniors who have placed high at the National College Finals Rodeo. Winchell was third in the goat tying at the 2012 rodeo while she was attending Eastern Wyoming College and Tierney placed third this past June.
A Chadron State cowboy, Kelby Bond of Avondale, Colo., placed second in the final standings of the steer wrestling at Sheridan. He won the first go-round in 5.1 seconds and was second in the championship go-round on Sunday in 7.7 seconds.
Two more CSC cowgirls also earned points by placing among the top six in their events.
Kaycee Werdel of Chadron was fifth in the breakaway roping and Amy Deichert of Spearfish was sixth in the barrel race.
Also reaching the finals, which features the 10 contestants with the best marks following the first go-round, were Jake Kasselder of Ericson, Neb., in steer wrestling and Brandy Reichmuth of Humphrey, Neb., in barrel racing.
