Yoder, Wyoming native Haiden Thompson who competes for Gillette College has a total time of 13 and 5 in the goat tying and that puts her in 16th in the average.

In the women's team standings, LCCC is 8th, UW is 10th and Gillette College is 23rd.

On the men's side, Ira Dickinson of Rock Springs who competes for Tarleton State gave the Ford Center crowd something to think about with an 84.5 on Tuesday night in the saddle bronc. Dickinson is currently 1st in the aggregate with 234 on 3. James Perrin of Casper College made it 3 for 3 in the saddle bronc with a 73.5 on Tuesday so he is 2nd in the average with 216.
