West represents SWTJC at College National Finals Rodeo in Wyoming

Southwest Texas Junior College will be represented at this year’s College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyoming by Mertzon native Tyler West.

West has advanced to compete for the national title in steer wrestling, where he racked up a total of 637 points, which helped him finish in fourth place overall in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) Southern region.

“It’s a tremendous accomplishment and an honor to make it to the college national finals,” said Joey Almand, SWTJC Rodeo Coach. “Tyler has worked hard to get to where he is, and I am extremely proud of this young man.”

Rodeo contestants will compete for jackpot go-round money and scholarship dollars at the College National Rodeo Finals. These will be awarded to the top performers in each event.

The College National Finals Rodeo is scheduled for June 9-15. For more information on the College National Rodeo Finals, visit www.cnfr.com.
