Dement takes bareback lead at CNFR

CASPER, Wyo. — Kolt Dement, a freshman from Rusk, Texas, competing at his first College National Finals Rodeo took the overall lead in bareback riding Wednesday, June 16. Dement, a ranch management major at Panola College, scored 83 points on Vold Rodeo’s Storm Valley to take the lead in the third round.

Dement finished seventh in the first two rounds of bareback riding. His total of 239.5 points puts him 5.5 points ahead of fellow freshman Dean Thompson of Snyder, Texas, who competes for Western Texas College. Thompson placed sixth in the first round and tied for third in the second round. His 74-point effort on Vold Rodeo’s Daddy’s Money Wednesday put him fourth in round three and second overall.

Canadian steer wrestler Pacean DeLeeuw who represents Cisco College in Texas grappled the overall lead in his event with a total time of 18.9 seconds on three steers. The welding major from Athabasca, Alberta, finished fifth in round one with a 5.9-second run and improved to third in round two with a 4.8. While his 8.2 in round three is sitting 10th thus far, he holds the overall lead by 4.8 seconds. Chadron Coffield, a junior animal science major from the University of Wyoming, moved to second overall, although his best round placing after three rounds is a tie for eighth in round three with half of the steer wrestlers left to compete.



Ladd King of Harrisville, Utah, caught the overall lead in tie-down roping on the strength of a 9.8-second run Wednesday night. King, a senior in construction management at Weber State University, finished 21st in the first round and sixth in the second. He has already accomplished a rare feat — winning the tie-down roping championship in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association’s Rocky Mountain Region four times.

King’s total time of 32.6 seconds is just 1.7 seconds faster than Levi Delamarter from Longview, Wash. Delamarter, a junior business major at Montana State University, has a total time of 34.3. He finished third in round two with a 9.1 and was 13th in round one.



Third-round competition at the CNFR continues Thursday at 7 p.m. (MDT) at the Ford Wyoming Center. The performance will also be broadcast live on ESPN3.
