Hoping for an eighth team championship, Tarleton State University’s rodeo teams are among 400 contestants in Casper, Wyo., this week for the 69th annual College National Finals Rodeo. Tarleton’s men’s and women’s rodeo teams both enter the CNFR as National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Southwest Region champions and are at the summer season finale for the eighth straight year. Experience is on Tarleton’s side as several members of Coach Mark Eakins’ team are repeat CNFR qualifiers. The rodeo runs through Saturday, when the champions will be named.
