Winners at Sul Ross College Rodeo

Dusty Easterday
Andrew Yates

Last week’s College Rodeo at Sul Ross in Alpine, Texas was worth the long trip for members of our Ranger College Rodeo Team. Placing 5th in the team roping average were Dusty Easterday, a header from Jordan Valley, Oregon, and his heeling partner, Andrew Yates from Hazlehurst, Mississippi. Andrew also got his name on the big board by making it back to the short go in tie down calf roping. Jake Rassau, from Saver, Pennsylvania, had his name in lights for the second week in a row for wining 5th place in the average in bull riding. Jake Anderson, a freshman from Shortsville, New York, made his first mark for the Ranger team by making it back to the short go in bull riding.

Women’s events often see as many as 130 to 140 entries per event.
