McClain and Stapleton qualify for National Finals

Goodwell, Okla-The Broncbuster women's rodeo team finished fourth and the men fifth at the 2018 Oklahoma Panhandle State Rodeo over the weekend.

Ean Price led the men's team by taking fourth place in the long go of steer wrestling, fourth in the short go and finishing in a tie for second, third and fourth in the average.

Luke Sullivan was fifth in the long go for bull riding before being bucked off in the short go. He was sixth in the average.

Tucker McClain and Gunnar Stapleton were fourth in the long go of team roping but missed out on the short go. They finished seventh in the average. However, the tandem qualified for the National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyoming in June becoming the first tandem to do so since the late 1970's.

For the season, the men's team finished fourth in the standings while the women were ninth.
