Special to QCS

Jeff O’Donnell and Jon Luse, Mesalands Community College Rodeo Team members, secured qualifications to the College National Finals Rodeo after competing last weekend at the Navajo Tech College Rodeo.

“We are proud of Jeff and Jon and now have hopes that two other Mesalands students, Michael Bates and Dominic Coche, will finish strong at the regional finals May 2-3 at New Mexico State University to earn their qualifications as well,” said rodeo coach C.J. Aragon.

At the Navajo Tech College rodeo Luse won the first round of the bareback riding and placed second in the average to earn his position to the CNFR.
