FPC will host a rodeo Oct. 12-14 at the Ochiltree Rodeo Arena in Perryton. The rodeo team will compete in the team roping for both men and women. Team members will also compete in calf roping, steer wrestling, bareback, saddle bronc and bull riding for the men. And barrels, breakaway and goat tying for the women. The rodeo will be free to get in.

The rodeo will kick off Thursday at 4 p.m with barrel racing, then Thursday and Friday at 6 p.m. will be bareback, tiedown roping, breakaway roping, saddle bronc, steer wrestling, goat tying, team roping, bull riding and barrel racing. On Friday at 9 a.m. will be barrel racing, team roping, tiedown roping and steer wrestling. Then Saturday at 9 a.m. will be barrel racing, team roping, breakaway roping, goat tying and steer wrestling.

Coach Kaylee Moyer said that the beginning of the season was a bit rough due to having some athletes getting injured. Even with few setbacks, three freshmen qualified for the top 10 short round (final round) in four events at their first rodeo of the season. The women’s team currently sits fifth out of the 17 competing colleges and universities in the Southwest Region.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better performance from each athlete as they executed their skills to the best of their abilities on the stock they drew,” she said.

Moyer said she is excited to see what is to come at the remaining eight college rodeos.

Sophomore Dana Sheets said that she hasn’t had any outstanding moments yet this season but, “I always go to a rodeo with the mindset to perform my best and perform better than the last rodeo.”

Freshman Sadie Waldron said catching her calf at her first college rodeo is the most outstanding moment for her so far and hopes to make the short-go (final round) in the breakaway roping at the upcoming rodeo in Perryton.
