(Neb.)- Four CSC Contestants Headed To CNFR
CHADRON, Neb. -- Three Chadron State College cowboys and one cowgirl will be competing at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper June 9 through 15.
Two of the cowboys won the Central Rocky Mountain Region championships during the 2018-19 season. They are bareback rider Kyle Bloomquist of Raymond, Minn., and steer wrestler Kalane Anders of Bayard
The third CSC cowboy qualifying for nationals is bull rider Miles Englebert of Burdock, S.D. He finished third in the region
Chadron State's Quincy Segelke of Snyder, Colo., also will be among the breakaway ropers at the CNFR as a reward for serving as the region's student director during the past year.
Bloomquist rode all 20 barebacks that he drew during the past season and finished with 1,245 points to win the regional title by 60 points. He was first in the event at four of the 10 rodeos. He also was second twice, third once, fourth twice and fifth once.
Anders also qualified for nationals in steer wrestling last year when he finished second in the region. He was lagging behind in this year's standings until April arrived. That's when he won first at both the Colorado State and Casper College rodeos to take the regional lead. He finished the year with 555 points, 165 more than the runner-up.
Englebert finished with 400 points, 50 more than his main challenger for third place in the regional standings. He earned all of his points by winning the bull riding at two rodeos and placing second at another.
Even though she'll be competing as something of a wildcard, Segelke is definitely capable of placing at the college finals
In the fall of 2017 while she was attending Gillette College, she had a pair of 2.5-second runs to win the breakaway roping at the Chadron State rodeo and also placed among the top six in both the barrel race and goat tying to earn the all-around cowgirl title.
During the 2017-18 season, she went on to finish second in the region in breakaway roping, just 10 points out of first, and was among the 12 finalists in the event at the CNFR in Casper last June.
This year, Segelke was sixth in the region's breakaway standings and also finished among the top 10 in goat tying.
