Texas Tech Women’s Rodeo Team Takes National Championship

ttu.edu

A Texas Tech team has won their first national championship.

The Texas Tech University women’s rodeo team took their first national championship late Saturday evening, at the 64th annual College National Finals Rodeo.

The Red Raiders finished with 423.3 points, beating Central Wyoming College and Sam Houston State University at the event in Casper, Wyoming. Texas A&M finished 20th.

Texas Tech’s men’s rodeo team won the national championship in 1955, and several other men and women have taken individual national championships, but Saturday night marked the first national championship for the entire women’s team.

The team consisted of members Bailey Guthrie, Haley Nelson, Jessica Frost, and Taylor Langdon.

The women’s team took the Southwest region championship with two regular-season events left, and entered the CNFR ranked seventh in the nation.

Separately, Nelson won reserve national champion in barrel racing, and Langdon finished fifth. Guthrie finished 10th in goat tying.

“I feel very happy for each of the girls, their families, and Texas Tech University friends and alumni,” said Chris Guay, rodeo coach and animal and food science instructor. “History was made for them as they came together as a team and had a remarkable year.”
