Rustlers finish out home rodeo

Oct 10, 2017 By Randy Tucker, Staff Writer

Beautiful weather on Friday quickly deteriorated into wind on Saturday and wet conditions with rain and snow for the short go on Sunday in the annual Central Wyoming College Rustler Rodeo at the Fremont County Fairgrounds arena in Riverton.

Central's effort was paced by a first-place finish by Tymber Taylor in goat tying.

The Buffalo native scored an average of 15.2 on runs of 7.7 and 7.9 to edge Eastern Wyoming College's Karissa Rayhill by fourth-tenths of a second.

Shoshoni High School graduate Danny Huxtable finished a close second to Deven Dibbern of Chadron State University in steer wrestling with an average of 8.7 seconds.

Huxtable opened with a 4.6 before turning his steer in 4.1 seconds during the short go.

Thomas Davis was the only other Central cowboy to finish in the money with a fourth place average score of 138 in bareback riding.

The Osage cowboy tallied identical scores of 69 in both rounds.

Sheridan College had outstanding performances in the bareback and saddle bronc events, with Hunter Carlson easily winning the bareback competition with a score of 157 and Lane Schuelke setting a high mark of 149 in the saddle bronc.

As is often the case in barrel racing, Siarra Johnson's winning time of 34.96 was just 0.5 seconds faster than fifth-place Karson Bradley of Central.

Bradley, a Big Piney cowgirl was the only Lady Rustler to finish in the money at the three-day rodeo.

Central hits the road this week for athree-day rodeo in Cheyenne in the final event of the fall season at Laramie County Community College.
