The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) fall Rodeo season continues as the team recently traveled to Stillwater, Okla., for the Oklahoma State University Rodeo. NEO Riders competed against schools in the Central Plains Region and Freshman Ag Business Major Dawson Turner from Sidney, Ark., claimed the top spot among calf ropers. The women’s team finished first among two year colleges on strong performances from Kassidy McKee, an agriculture major from Lenapah, Okla., who placed third in barrel racing. Addee Carder, a sophomore animal science major from Miami, and Katy Barger, a freshman animal science major from Pawnee, Okla., both had top ten finishes in breakaway roping. Carder placed seventh and Barger placed ninth in the event.
The Rodeo team is on the road this week for the final fall rodeo of the season. They are competing in Alva, Okla., for the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Rodeo. The Rodeo team is also preparing to host the annual NEO Alumni/Recruiting Rodeo on Saturday, November 17. For more information, contact Gentry Hutchison at 918-540-6368.
