The New Mexico State University rodeo team took more wins during the March 15-16 doubleheader at Central Arizona College in Florence, Ariz.
“I am very excited to see our men continue their dominance of the region,” NMSU rodeo coach Jim Brown said.
Brandi Pfeifer and Tyke Kipp took the All-Around wins the first day, scoring the highest points for their teams.
“The women’s team has really stepped up this semester and have pulled themselves up from a rocky start to a very much attainable team championship,” Brown said.
Among the first place winners were: Trenton Montero in bareback, Tyke Kipp in saddlebronc riding, Pacen Marez and Victor Ugalde in tie-down, Jenna Suazo in breakaway and Colt Capurro in steer wrestling.
Both men’s and women’s teams made the top spot the first day, while the men took first and the women took third the second day.
“With four rodeos to go, there’s a lot that can happen,” Brown said.
The next rodeo is scheduled for March 22 at the University of Arizona in Tucson. For a full list of rodeo events visit the NMSU Rodeo Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/nmsu.rodeo.
