STEPHENVILLE — Tarleton State University steer roper Walt Arnold posted a third-go 4.8 Thursday to stay on track for a spot in Saturday’s championship finals of the College National Finals in Casper, Wyo.
His Thursday effort is fifth in the go-round. Combined with twin 4.2 times on his first two steers, he finishes the preliminary round with a three-head 13.2.
Today’s performance will feature three Tarleton competitors — breakaway roper Sarah Angelone, saddle bronc rider Brody Wells and tie-down roper Brayden Roe — each vying for a spot in the finals.
Angelone, the two-time defending National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Southwest Region champion, carries a 4.4 two-head total; Wells, also a regional champ, boasts a two-ride tally of 153 on scores of 80 and 73; and numbers don’t add up Roe’s 21.8 combined time came on runs of 10.7 and 11.1.
Both remaining performances will be televised on ESPN3. Full results can be found on CNFR.com
