Following an opening night where no cowboys lasted eight seconds on their bulls, Saturday night saw two take the lead by scoring in the 80s at the Big Spring Cowboy Reunion and Rodeo.
David Hudson scored an 80.5 to take second, and Seymour’s Colten Beaty took the lead by scoring an 83.5 on Pete Carr Livestock’s bull named Day Money. Beaty is a sophomore attending Vernon College on a rodeo scholarship.
Shane Hadley’s impressive steer wrestling run was another exciting moment on the night. He wrestled the steer to the ground in just 3.7 seconds, making for a hard time to beat in Saturday’s finale.
Tyler Berghuis and Jake Springer, who took first and second place in bareback riding into Friday night, slipped to third and fourth as Evan Jayne scored 81 points and Tray Chambliss III scored 79.5.
