Barrel Racers Wrap-Up First Round of Competition

FORT WORTH, Texas --- The first round of Women’s Professional Rodeo Association wrapped up at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Thursday night.

Sherrylynn Johnson recorded the fastest time of 16.95 seconds over 15 performances ago and no other barrel racer could beat it. For her efforts, the Henryetta, Okla., cowgirl netted over $4,700 along with the top spot for the progressive round of competition beginning at Friday’s matinee performance.

In the past, all of the barrel racers competed two times with the 12 fastest total times qualifying for the finals. This year, the rodeo opened up the competition giving more contestants an opportunity to compete. Nearly 240 women competed, receiving one run with the best 50 progressing to a second round of competition. Then the top twelve total times advance to the final round at Will Rogers Coliseum Feb., 7th at 7:30 p.m.

The tie-down roping saw yet another overall lead change. Spence Barney from Carthage, Texas, came in roped his calf in eight seconds flat and left the arena as the new average leader with 17.6 seconds on two runs. He is also tied for fourth place in the second round with Tyson Durfey. With Barney’s performance tonight, he is almost guaranteed his spot for the final round.

Seven-time all around champion Trevor Brazile roped his second calf in 8.2 seconds giving him 17.8 on two runs, currently tied for second place with Houston Hutto. Brazile and his team roping partner Patrick Smith also lead the average in the team roping which means the all-around cowboy is set to return for the final round in both his events.

There are just five performances left until the championship round Sunday evening at 7:30 p.m.

Friday performances of the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo are at 2 and 7:30 p.m.
