Ranger women dominant in Kansas

Twisted Rodeo - 1 hour 6 min ago

ALVA, Okla. – It takes just one word to describe the Northwestern Oklahoma State University women’s team performance this past weekend: Dominating.

The Rangers women posted 455 points to run away with the Garden City (Kan.) Community College rodeo title. Lauren Barnes of Buckeye, Ariz., won the all-around championship with 195 points, parlaying a second-place finish in goat-tying and a fourth-place run in barrel racing to take the crown.

But she was just one of six Northwestern women who were part of the championship round Sunday afternoon. She was joined on the leaderboard by goat-tier Laremi Allred of Kanarraville, Utah, who won the short-round and the two-run average title by two-tenths of a second over Barnes.

“We’re pretty strong and pretty deep, so that’s beneficial for everyone involved,” said Allred, who transferred to Northwestern for the spring semester, making Garden City just her second Central Plains Region rodeo for the Rangers. “I like the school and the rodeo program we have here. We have some pretty good coaches and the opportunity to practice whenever we want.”

The proof was in the performance in the western Kansas community that was in the middle of a winter storm the week of the rodeo. Besides Allred and Barnes atop the goat-tying standings, Shayna Miller of Faith, S.D., finished third. Karley Kile, of Topeka, Kan., also was in the final round.

Barnes, who won the first round in barrel racing with a 13.79-second run, earned more points for the team by placing in the average. She was joined in the short round by Paige Winnett of Elmore City, Okla., who placed in both rounds and finished fifth in the two-run aggregate. Cassy Woodward of Dupree, S.D., placed in the final round.

“My goal this year is to be in the top three in goat tying and make the college finals,” Allred said. “If I can sneak in there in the breakaway (roping), that would be nice, too.”

Northwestern is well represented in the region standings, which the Rangers lead as a team. Miller is atop the goat-tying standings, followed by Barnes in third, Kile in sixth, Allred in eighth and Elli Jo Price in 12th.

For Allred, Garden City came together quite nicely, especially considering she was utilizing her brother’s steer wrestling horse to win the goat tying title. Her primary horse was injured in an vehicle wreck in which the truck and trailer rolled twice while en route from Utah to Alva to begin the semester.

“She’s still not healed yet,” Allred said, noting that the runs in Garden City were the first for the borrowed mount. “She worked pretty good, and I’ll probably keep hauling her.”

The Northwestern men had six cowboys compete in the championship round, led by tie-down roper Wade Perry of Lamont, Okla., who won the first round and finished second in the aggregate. Chase Lako of Hunter, N.D., placed sixth. Steer wrestler Laine Herl of Goodland, Kan., finished second in the first round and fell to third in the average, while Stephen Culling of Fort St. John, British Columbia, was third in the opening round and six in the average.

In team roping, header Dalton Richards of Hawkinsville, Ga., finished third in the average, roping with heeler Ben Whiddon of Southeastern Oklahoma State University, while Northwestern heeler Dustin Searcy of Mooreland, Okla., was the runner-up in the opening round while competing with Hunter Munsell of Western Oklahoma State College.
