- SAU Rodeo hopes 13 is their lucky number at College National Rodeo Finals
The Southern Arkansas University Rodeo Team has earned their 13th consecutive trip to the College National Rodeo Finals in Casper, Wyoming.
Four Mulerider Rodeo student-athletes will represent SAU at the national event from June 9-15 – Jacie Sullivan, Logan Graham, Michaela Caudle, and Cash Davis. Their performance caps another satisfying year for the team, said Rusty Hayes, rodeo coach.
“I knew we would make it,” Hayes said of this year’s run at the College Finals. “We had a very good fall semester as a team and overcame some challenges this spring to qualify these individuals.”
This will be the third qualifier to the College Finals for both Sullivan and Caudle, and Graham’s second. Sullivan, a senior Psychology major from Morrilton, Arkansas, is the Ozark Region Champion Goat Tier, a title she has won three years in a row. Caudle, a junior Pre-Nursing major from Horatio, Arkansas, is the Ozark Region Reserve Champion Breakaway Roper. Graham, a sophomore Agricultural Business major from Simms, Texas, is the Reserve Champion Header. Davis, a freshman Agriculture Education major from Billingsleys Corner, Arkansas, will be making his first appearance at the CNRF as the Reserve Champion Heeler. (more…)
