Northern Lights College
The 2021-22 Northern Lights College Rodeo Team.

The Canadian College Rodeo season began last weekend with the Lakeland Fall Classic in Vermillion, October 16 and 17, and the Northern Lights College Rodeo Team couldn't have asked for a better start to its season. 

Rachel Moat, a dual credit student taking the carpentry program at NLC, finished first and fifth in her two barrel racing runs, and was the fastest rider on average out of 91 cowgirls. Aspen Wollen and Averee Whitewood had great showings as well, averaging inside the top 35. 

Other highlights from the weekend were Aspen Wollen's fifth-place pole bending ride, Moat and Tyler Bondaroff both placing seventh in goat tying, and Ryan Collett placing second in steer wrestling. 

Collett, Bryce Garcia and Wyatte Copeland all finished in the top 10 in tie down roping. 

The week before the Lakeland Fall Classic, Lane Paley and Keaton Collett competed in the Wild Rose Rodeo Association Finals in Rimbey. Paley was the bull riding champion, while Keaton was the breakaway roping champion.

The NLC Rodeo Team will be back in action this weekend, October 23 and 24, at the Olds Fall Rodeo.

Below are the results of the NLC rodeo team members.
