SWTJC rodeo member finishes seventh in the nation
Reeves and CurrieSWTJC rodeo team members Rozlyn Reeves and Logan Currie ended their six-day run at the College National Finals Rodeo on Saturday (June 18) in Casper, Wyo.

Currie finished seventh overall in the team-roping event with a total of 100 points. He teamed up with Reno Gonzales of Hill College.



The average time for Currie was 20.7 with his best time being 5.2 in the first go round of the competition.

Reeves did not fare as well as her college teammate; in the first go round of barrel racing she tipped a barrel and later sprained her ankle in the goat-tying event, which resulted in her not able to finish the event.

While in Casper both Reeves and Currie took time from the busy schedule to spend the day with special needs children in an event named the “Exceptional Rodeo”.

“This shows them that sometimes tipping a barrel or missing a steer is not the worst thing in the world,” said Pam Angermiller, SWTJC Rodeo Coach. “I was very proud of our kids for volunteering and helping put a smile on those kids’ faces.”
