    BHSU Rodeo: Jackets compete at CNFR, Johnston third in All-Around

    CASPER, Wyo. - Members of the Black Hills State University rodeo teams competed at the College National Finals Rodeo last week. Carlee Johnston finished third in the All-Around competition, while Alyssa Lockhart was 10th in breakaway roping.

    "Our team was very talented and worked hard all year, however, I am most impressed with the attitude and character of this team and how they went about being successful," said coach Glen Lammers. "All four of the Yellow Jacket women were recognized as Academic All-Americans for maintaining above a 3.5 GPA. They accomplished a lot in the arena, academically, and in our community. We had a great year in college rodeo and we were very competitive at the finals."

    Johnston entered the CNFR first in the Great Plains Region and second nationally in the All-Around. She took third nationally with 65.0 points, competing in three events. Her best finish in goat tying came in the first go when she was fifth with 6.2. In breakaway roping, Johnston's best finish was 17th in the third go with 3.6. She finished fifth in the third go in barrel racing with 14.42. Mia Manzanares of McNeese State won the All-Around competition.

    Lockhart took 10th in breakaway roping, making it to the final round. Her best result came in the second go when she was 15th with 2.9. She also competed in barrel racing, where her best finish came in the second go where she was ninth with 14.49.

    KeAnna Ward and Emilee Pauley each competed in goat tying. Ward's best finish came in the second go when she was 13th with 6.4. Pauley was eighth in the third go with 6.4.

    On the men's side, Chandler Comfort competed in team roping, while Tucker Chytka competed in steer wrestling. Comfort's best finish was in the third go when he was 24th with 21.9. Chytka was 16th in the second go with 5.0.

    It was also announced during the CNFR that Chytka was elected as the 2019-20 NIRA National Student President.
