CNCC rodeo hits new heights headed into fall season’s end

The Colorado Northwestern Community College men’s and women’s rodeo teams are not slowing down as they get ready for a break in their season.

Last week’s Rocky Mountain Regional Rodeo saw the CNCC men set a new school record for team points scored in a single rodeo, moving up to a total of 951.

The Spartans’ first place wins included Colton Onyett in bareback
and Colby Demo in bull riding, with Demo followed by Rhett Nielsen in second and McCoy Moody in third. Team ropers JD Slagowski & Johnny Pavkov lassoed second place, while in steer wrestling, Pavkov took third and Nielsen fourth. Brody Adams was fourth in tie down roping.

Among the women, Teasha Moody was fourth in goat tying and Shawnie Swedberg was fourth in barrel racing.

At last weekend’s Idaho State University Bengal Roundup, the CNCC gals were headed by Anna Bahe placing fourth in the first round and second in the short round, enough for a first place average, while Rylie Gardner made it to the top 10 of barrel racing.

In bareback, Onyett won the long go, short go, and average. Pavkov wrestled his way to fourth in the long, second short and second in the average. Of the four CNCC roping teams that made it to the short go, Nielsen and Justin White had the best finish with a second place average.

The teams will wrap up their fall season this weekend in Logan, Utah at the Utah State University Rodeo.
