Goodwell, OK – Oklahoma Panhandle State University’s rodeo team continued its winning tradition this weekend at the Central Plains Region National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association’s competition in Miami, Oklahoma at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. Taos Muncy’s performance in the calf roping and bareback competitions added team points and helped place the men’s team second overall. Those points also won Muncy the All-Around Cowboy spot.

In the first round of the calf roping, Muncy split first and second, and went on to win fourth in the average of the event. In the bareback, Muncy again won first in the long go, placed fourth in the short round, and won first in the average. OPSU cowboy Brian Leddy also made the short round of the bareback.

The men’s team was well-represented in the short round of the saddle bronc riding. Weston Ireland took second in the first round, and won the average in that event. Trell Etbauer made the short go, and split fourth, fifth, and sixth in the average. Jordan Furnish also made the short round of the saddle bronc. Ryan Leeds made the short go of the bull riding.

Team ropers Levi Swafford and Eli Eastman placed second in the long go, sixth in the short go, and took 5th in the average. Steer wrestler Tyrel Turner turned in a five flat in the first go of that event, but it was only quick enough for seventh in the round. He turned in a 13.9 in the short round, and ended up ninth in the average.

On the women’s side, Chancy Etbauer took fourth in the short go of the breakaway roping, and placed fifth in the average. Chancy also made the short go of the goat tying.

With one fall rodeo remaining, the team plans to be ready for the upcoming spring season. The team will be in Alva, OK at the Northwestern Oklahoma State University rodeo October 27-29.
