BOZEMAN — Montana State’s Hailey Garrison clocked in at 14.19 seconds in her third attempt in the barrel racing competition Thursday at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyoming.
Her time was the second-fastest mark of all third attempts so far. Garrison now has a combined time of 43.13 seconds, putting her in second place.
After Thursday’s action, Garrison also remains tied for fifth place in the goat tying.
Teammate Tayla Moeykens is in eighth place in the barrels after her three attempts.
Molly Salmond is up to sixth place in the breakaway roping following her third attempt, which was clocked at 2.9 seconds. Her combined time is now 8.4 seconds. Jacee Currin did not record a time in her third attempt in the event and is outside the top 12.
Caleb Berquist dropped further in the tie down roping standings following the action on Thursday evening. He began the day in ninth place but was passed by two others, sending him to 11th place. He is in danger of falling out of the top 12 qualifiers for Saturday’s short go.
