Chadron State College cowgirl Brianna Williams of Buffalo, S.D., will be among the 12 finalists in breakaway roping tonight (Saturday) at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper.

Williams will enter the finals in seventh place with a cumulative time of 12.6 seconds.  Each of the 12 of the finalists plus one more contestant who didn’t make the finals, caught all three of their calves during the preliminary go-rounds that began last Sunday. 

The leader entering tonight’s action is Grace Felton of Lassen College in California with three runs totaling 7.6 seconds.  Zoie Bedke of Idaho State is second in 7.9 seconds and Courtney Peters of Black Hills State is third in 8.1 seconds.

Two more Chadron State contestants, Quincy Segelke of Rozet, Wyo., and Phannette Gray of Ridgeview, S.D., caught two of their three calves at the national rodeo.  Segelke finished 15th in the final standings after catching her calves in 3.2 and 2.3 seconds. Her 2.3 time was the fourth fastest in the third go-round. Gray placed 23rd among the 58 breakaway ropers with times of 3.6 and 4.2 seconds. 

Chadron State’s Rowdy Moon of Sargent, Neb., earned 68.5 points on both of the barebacks he rode, but was bucked off his second bronc and wound up 25th among the 34 national qualifiers.
