Mitchell Technical College rodeo team finishes in top-eight at first two events
The Mavericks' next rodeo comes on Friday, Oct. 7 in Fort Dodge, Iowa
MITCHELL — The Mitchell Technical College's rodeo season has broke from the gates, with two events already in the books this season.
On Sept. 16 and 17, the Mavericks took eighth place at the 57th Annual Falcon Frontier Days Rodeo at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in their first rodeo of the year. At that event, Wyatt Cahoy finished fourth in steer wrestling and Josh Heckenlaible placed fifth. Garrett Varilek took second place in saddle bronc riding, while Chazz Gabe came in third in bull riding.
A week later, the Mavericks finished in sixth place at the Mid-Plains Community College Stampede in North Platte, Nebraska. Varilek earned first place in both rounds, recording the highest average, in the saddle-bronc riding event. Tucker Even placed first in the saddle bronc riding finals and second in average. Myles Clements took second place in the tie-down roping in the long run and fifth place in average.
The Mavericks next rodeo comes on Friday, Oct. 7 in Fort Dodge, Iowa, at the Iowa Central Community College Triton Stampede.
