On the men’s team, freshman Tate Thomas led the way winning the opening round in steer wrestling and finished 2nd in the finals and as the reserve champion. Thomas also finished 8th in tiedown roping.

Leighton Berry placed in two events as well, placing in both rounds and winning the reserve title in bareback riding and, along with Chantz Webster, placed in the finals and finished 6th in team roping.
