The NCHS Rodeo Team had two members bring home a coveted Event Jacket this weekend. Colby Thurston was 2nd both days in the Cutting, winning the average and earning the Cutting Event Jacket. Denton Shaw and his partner, Justene Hirsig from Cheyenne, placed 4th in the Team Roping on Sat. and 3rd on Sun. to win the average and the Team Roping Event Jacket. Colby also placed 2nd in the Tie Down on Sunday and Brady Thurston placed 4th in the Steer Wrestling on Sun. Megan Proctor roped aggressive on Sat with a 4 sec Breakaway run but brokeout for a 10 sec penalty. Stevie Mellot had a nice 19.387 sec. Barrel run on Sunday.
While that did not place in the top of the very tough competition, she is working her way up as that run was a full 1 + sec. faster than her Saturday time.
The team is headed to Casper this next weekend as they make the push to the end of the season.
