Better showing for CWC's Rustler men at LCCC rodeo
Oct 18, 2012 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor
Blaine Mathews and Stetson Jorgensen ended the fall rodeo season on a positive note for Central Wyoming College Sunday at the Laramie County Community College rodeo.
Mathews finished first in saddle bronc riding with a two-ride score of 144 points. Sheridan's Taygen Schuelke came in second at 137 points.
CWC rodeo athlete Colton Miller was fifth (78 points). Miller didn't post a score in his second ride.
In steer wrestling, Jorgensen had the fastest two-ride time of 9.2 seconds to win the title.
Teammate Frank Enos finished sixth in the event at 16.3. Enos, and team roping partner Matthew Cover placed fifth with 7.1 seconds.
Enos was fifth in the all-around standings scoring 90 points.
In the team standings in Cheyenne, the Rustlers were third at 460 points.
The rodeo was the fifth and final one of the fall season.
"We are young and had a lot of positive things happen this fall," CWC rodeo coach Drew Schrock said. "The reason why the men's team placed higher at Cheyenne than the other rodeos is because they stayed focused and performed in the short round. As a whole, the whole team did very well."
The University of Wyoming won the title with 690 points. Eastern Wyoming College finished second (663.33 points).
"This team has a lot of support from the school and community, so with this it pumps up the team to hear all of the positive reinforcement," Schrock said. "
The CWC women finished eighth (80 points) in the team standings in Cheyenne.
Northeastern Junior College placed first (375), and Gillette College was second (335).
"This is a tough region," Schrock said. "Not only do you need to be at the top of your game, but like any other rodeo you still need to draw the right stock to win on."
CWC's Chaylie Hulme finished fourth in the breakaway roping after putting together a time of 2.3 seconds. Hulme didn't have a time in her second performance.
Shaylee Hance was fifth for the Lady Rustlers in 14.3 seconds.
"We are taking this week off to get caught up in school, and then we will be back to work, working on our horses and basics to be a stronger team this spring," Schrock said.
