Connors State College rodeo tryouts were held March 12, 2014. Twenty six prospects strutted their stuff in their respective competitions in hopes to make the 2014-2015 CSC Rodeo Team.
Rodeo coaches Jake Walker and Jake Lawson will look at an additional 15-20 prospects before school starts next fall. They will also review videos sent in by students who live out of state. “There are always new prospects we hear about here and there that we will make contact with. We want to express interest in anyone who we think will excel on our team” said Lawson. “Though every student may not make the team, we have a good pool of prospects already to choose from. Our upcoming year looks promising” added Walker.
Created by a mixture of freshmen and sophomores, there are 42 members on the current rodeo team. There will be many spots on the team opened up by graduating sophomores and waiting to be claimed by incoming freshmen.
