SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College rodeo team traveled to Lamar, Colorado, this weekend to compete in the Antelope Stampede at Lamar Community College. 

Third-year bull rider Coby Johnson won the long round with a 76-point ride and scored a 73 in the short round to place second. Johnson finished second in the average. Fellow bull rider sophomore Wyatt Phelps placed fourth in the long round but he was bucked off in the short round. 

Tie down roper freshman Corbin Fisher won the long round with a time of nine seconds. Fisher drew a hard running calf in the short round and broke out to place in the round.

Sam Larson split ninth and 10th in the tie down roping long round with a time of 11.3 seconds, but the freshman missed his calf in the short round. 

Sophomore barrel racer Maddie Hall placed seventh in the long round with a time of 18.14 seconds, but her horse stumbled in the short round to place 10th in the round and the average. 

Several athletes just missed the short round — two goat tying cowgirls missed the short round by three-tenths and six-tenths of a second. Another cowgirl missed the breakaway finals by five-tenths of a second, and two cowgirls missed the short round in barrel racing by five-one-hundreths and nine-one-hundredths of a second.
