“This was another very successful Alumni/Recruitment Rodeo,” said NEO Rodeo coach Kolby Ungeheuer. “It is exciting to see so many alumni come back to support the event. More than 100 top high school recruits also competed that day, it was a huge a success for the NEO Rodeo program. I would like to thank our sponsors that make the event possible and the continued support from our NEO administration. It wouldn’t be possible without them.”
