Moffat County rodeo athletes ranked highly after home meet

Cutter Barnes, Dusty Taylor top state points, Kinlie Brennise 2nd for girls

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

After the dust cleared Sunday, the members of the Moffat County High School rodeo team found themselves in great standing on the all-around point tally, in some cases better than when they started.

Cutter Barnes and Dusty Taylor are tied for first place as the top male high school rodeo athlete in Colorado following the MCHS home event this past weekend at Moffat County Fairgrounds. Likewise, Kinlie Brennise kept her position in second place among the girls with another solid performance.

Trent Vernon and Yampa’s Eric Logan follow behind Barnes and Taylor, tied for third, while Garrett Uptain stands in fifth, Kasen Brennise in eighth, and Jace Logan is just outside the top 10 in 11th.

Moffat County competitors Yancey Weber, Kayla Pinnt and Quinn Pinnt made their mark on the all-around points leader list this weekend with Weber and Kayla each 26th on the boys and girls lists, and Quinn at No. 30.

The team claimed several wins at home, as Kinlie Brennise had a triumph in goat tying, Kayla Pinnt won a round of barrel racing, Uptain topped the saddle bronc, Barnes won steer wrestling and Taylor and Vernon traded off first and second place honors in the two-day rodeo.

Also competing for the team are Samantha Pearce, Ty Pinnt, and Kelten and Dillon Burch, who still have time to record numbers in the all-around before the fall season concludes.

The group’s next event will be in Montrose this Saturday and Sunday.
