Quartet of Wildcats Finish in Top Four

CWU student rides horse in rodeo

Two Central Washington University barrel racers placed in the top four and another two tie-down ropers were among the best in their respective events as Sunday’s short round closed the three-day college rodeo hosted by Central Washington University at the Ellensburg Rodeo arena.

Fresh off Friday’s 17.81-second time to win the go-round, CWU’s Taylor Turner was a model of consistency during Saturday and Sunday’s two-round average. Saturday’s pattern was 18.15 seconds, with Sunday’s better by a blink of an eye at 18.11. Both times were fourth in each round, with her 36.36 average on two also fourth.

“That’s probably the best run I’ve ever made on that horse,” Turner said of Friday’s 17.81. “Everything came together, it was just an awesome run. I wasn’t really sure what to expect,” she continued. “I was the first person to run the entire weekend.”
