Final round field set for San Angelo

SAN ANGELO, Texas – By Ted Harbin – The field is set for Friday’s final round to decide the champions for this year’s San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo.

The preliminary go-rounds concluded Thursday night with only a handful of competitors sneaking into the top 12 in the standings to secure their spots in the final round. Barrel racer Tiany Schuster of Krum, Texas, made the biggest impact; she posted a 14.17-second run to finish fourth in the second go-round. That was worth $3,088.

That, matched with her first run, gave Schuster a two-run cumulative time of 29.96 seconds; she is one of just two cowgirls to have posted sub-30 second runs and sits second in the average. Schuster trails leader Amberleigh Moore by just six-hundredths of a second.

Two bareback riders earned their way into the short round. Chad Rutherford of Lake Charles, La., rode Pickett Rodeo’s Scarlett Night for 84.5 points to finish seventh in the first round, worth $624. Morgan Wilde of McCammon, Idaho, rode Pickett’s Scarlette Belle for 82 points to finish just out of the money. He is ninth. Because of ties, only 11 bareback riders will compete Friday.

Steer wrestler Will Stovall of Roberts, Mont., posted a 3.5-second run Thursday night to finish in a tie for second place in the second round. He earned $2,496 and also moved into a tie for eighth place in the average to earn his spot in the short round.

Reigning steer wrestling world champion Tyler Waguespack leads his discipline with 7.0 seconds on two runs, while the brother tandem of Tate and Trevor Kirchenschlager lead team roping with an aggregate time of 9.8 seconds.

Saddle bronc rider Joe Lufkin scored 83 points Wednesday night to win the first round and hold the lead heading into the short round. He has earned $3,466 so far.

Oregonian bareback rider Austin Foss has the highest score of the rodeo so far, spurring Powder River Rodeo’s Craig at Midnight to 89 points last weekend. He won the first round and pocketed $4,679. He holds a point and a half lead over Canadian Orin Larsen heading into the championship round.

Cody Quaney has held on to the tie-down roping lead. Quaney also won the second round, worth nearly $4,500. The Kansas man roped and tied two calves in 14.8 seconds to lead the pack into Friday night.

Trey Benton III scored 88.5 points early in the rodeo to lead bull riding. Unlike all other disciplines, bull riding will feature just one go-round. Benton could still win the championship if his score holds out for the top spot through Friday.
