The first National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association fall rodeo in the Central Plains Region was held this past weekend, October 7-9. The women of Oklahoma Panhandle State University took second place with a great effort in the goat tying.

Kelly Koeppen won the first go in the goat tying with a 7.8 second time and ended up splitting third and fourth in the average. In the same event, Brandi Guttmorson won the short round with a 7.8 and took first in the average. Chancy Harrington also made the short go in that event.

The men had a good showing in the bareback riding. Taos Muncy split second and third in the first round with a 73 point ride, split fifth and sixth in the second go and split fourth and fifth in the average with teammate Logan Hodson who took second in the short round. Brian Leddy also made the short round in the bareback.

Chance Hays took third in the short round and third in the average of the calf roping. Jason Mansor made the short round in the bull riding, while Weston Ireland and Trell Etbauer both made the short go of the saddle bronc. Andrew Cowan and Taos Muncy also made the short round of the team roping.

Coach Craig Latham said, “I was tickled, but we just didn’t go all the way this weekend. If we can get off the ground this fall, I think we can do something with the women’s team. Even though there are only seven team members, they are all great athletes and competitors.”

The OPSU Rodeo Team will carry on its winning tradition this weekend at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M at Miami.
