It was a Good night at the Big Horn County Fair rodeo held Saturday night in the Big Horn REA Arena.
Casey Good took first place in the calf roping, finishing in a time of 25.35 seconds. With just two entries, the win was worth $60 to Good.
Lacee Good emerged from a crowded field of entries in the women’s breakaway, finishing in 5.17 seconds to capture the $180 first prize. Callie Nelson, who posted a 15.45, took home $120.
A third member of the Good family, Sam Good, joined forces with Casey Nelson to win the team roping (8.29 seconds). The total pot was a large one, $2,296, and nearly half went to the winners, as Good and Nelson split $918. Second went to Clay and Mason Trollinger, whose 11.2 was worth $688. Colter Sole and Colt Billy split $459 for their third-place time of 11.46. Finishing fourth was the pairing of Casey Good and J.T. Collingwood, whose 12.46 was worth $229.
In the women’s barrels, less than a second separated the top five finishers. Jessica Norris claimed the $462 top prize, posting a time of 17.45 seconds. Second and $337 went to Amy Strickland (17.58), third and $237 to Taylor Werbelow (17.65), fourth and $125 to Afton Peterson (17.76) and fifth and $87 to Bailey Matthews (17.88).
