By QCS Staff

Mesalands Community College Team Ropers, Colt Vernon and Cody O’Donnel finished the long round in fifth place and then improved their placing by taking fourth place in the short round and fourth place in the average.

Besides a cash prize they added 80 points each to their personal scores and 160 to the team’s points.

Coach Shawn Patrick has hopes for the team as it finishes the season at Stevenville, Texas, this weekend and looks towards next year.

“All of the team has shown some improvement with bareback rider, John Luse, taking the honors of the most-improved member this year,” said Patrick.
