Photo by Jack Upton James Wilson Sports Editor For the first year since Feather River College's rodeo program was conceived, the women's team performed better than the men's. FRC competed at its final rodeo of the regular season April 25 - 26 in Las Vegas. After the dust settled and all was said and done, the women came out first and the men second. Cal Poly overtook the men's team at the final rodeo to take the top spot in the West Coast Region. "We had a decent rodeo in Vegas," explained FRC coach Jesse Segura, "but Cal Poly had a really great rodeo." The women's team ended with 3,165.16 points, almost 300 more than Cal Poly. The men's team finished almost 300 points behind Cal Poly. The Nol 1 standing bounced back and fourth,between FRC and Cal Poly all season, and ultimately ended with teams from both schools in first. The women's team was led by Courtney Wood, who took first in women's all-around. " Wood also placed first in goat tying, anti the next three placements were all from FRC. Bailey Bidwell took second in goat tying, Kaley Wilson third and Kayla Norcutt fourth. In breakaway roping, Kara Kojutek took first and Quincy Hundsdorfer placed second.

Longtime rodeo sponsor Linda Leonhardt died last summer, and Segura believes she was looking over the team this season. "One of (Leonhardt's) goals was for the women's team to win the regionals," said Segura. "I can't help but think she was smiling down on us." The men's team did well over the season, barely missing first place. Telden McLain placed first in saddle bronc riding, paired with Grant Denny, who placed first in bareback riding. Brandon Mackenzie took third in steer wrestling and Quincy Crum and Curry Cash placed third in team roping. FRC has more members going to the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyoming, in June than any other team in the West Coast Region. FRC will take 11, six men and five women, to compete in the final rodeo of the season.
