The Snow College Rodeo team has broken out of the chute and is holding on tight. With the team preparing to host the annual Snow College Rodeo in Salina, the team is working daily to be the best.
“Many people think of rodeo as an individual sport, but in college rodeo it is a team sport,” said Snow rodeo coach Kendra Sagers. “All of our team members work hard together, help each other in and out of the arena, and are the loudest cheering section at the rodeos.”
Snow competed well in pre-conference rodeos during Fall semester and is sure to continue as tough competitors this rodeo season.
“I am very excited about the success of our athletes,” Sagers said. “As a young team they have all really pulled together and worked hard to be successful. I am so proud of all of our team members and am glad that they are having the successes they have worked so hard for and that they are getting the recognition they deserve.”
The Snow College Rodeo team will host a collegiate rodeo at the Blackhawk Arena in Salina, Utah on March 18 and 19.
“We will have amazing cowboys and cowgirls, and also amazing contractors that we are excited to work with,” said Sagers. “Last year we were voted the Number 2 rodeo in the region by the participants, and this year we are working to be number one. This will be a great rodeo!”
Snow College students get in free with their activity card. The Rodeo team invites all students to support the rodeo this year.
