Cook-out to Celebrate OPSU Rodeo

Submitted by OPSU Rodeo Team on 08/18/2014

Goodwell, Okla. — There’s no question why OPSU Rodeo is known for its winning tradition with five team National Championships, over 20 individual National Championships and countless regional team and individual championships. A cook-out honoring the OPSU Rodeo Teams and this year’s achievements will be held on the OPSU campus on Thursday, August 21 at 5 p.m.

This free event will be held in the OPSU Bell Tower Plaza and the public is invited to attend. Hamburgers, chips and cookies will be provided and rodeo team members and coaches will be on hand to sign autographs and meet with the public.

The Men’s Rodeo Team placed third overall at the College National Finals Rodeo held June 15-21 in Casper, Wyo. Orin Larsen clinched the National Champion Bareback Riding title for the second consecutive year. Fellow team member, Joe Frost, walked away the National Champion Bull Rider.

Following the cook-out, an evening of fun will continue as the OPSU Aggie Football Team takes the field for an intra-squad scrimmage. The scrimmage is set to start at 7 p.m. at Carl Wooten Field.
