RANGELY I The Colorado Northwestern Community College rodeo athletes had a good weekend in Heber City, Utah.
CNCC Head Rodeo Coach Jed Moore said Monday that a handful of our Spartans had solid weekends in Heber City, Utah, at the UVU rodeo.
The Spartan freshman team roping duo of J.D. Slagowski and Johnny Pavkov placed second in the team roping, moving them from fourth in the regional standings up to second.
Bareback bronc riders Colton Onyett and Brendon Beck placed well in the bareback riding.
Colton placed in third place and moved from second place in the regional standings up and into the lead.
Beck placed fifth overall, which is his best showing yet this year.
On the ladies’ side, sophomore Ashley Farrington was solid and consistent in the breakaway roping, having placed third in the short round and third place overall.
Freshman barrel racer Shawnie Stone-Swedberg placed fifth in the first round on her new horse, Paris.
“We appear to be heading into another very successful season,” Moore said.
The CNCC Rodeo Team will be traveling to Twin Falls, Idaho, this weekend for the College of Southern Idaho rodeo.
Moore also said he wanted CNCC rodeo fans to mark their calendars for the April 1-2 weekend for the Fourth Annual Spartan Showdown Rodeo, to be hosted by CNCC in Rangely.
