The Panola College Rodeo Team won both the men and the women’s divisions of the Hill College Rodeo this past weekend in Hillsboro.
The men’s team continues to dominate the Southern Region as they remained in first place. Freshman Kolt Dement is running away with the Southern Region Bareback title as he once again won the rodeo. Teammate Riley Rieken also won the team roping with his partner Jace Frerck from SWTXJC.
Other men who scored for Panola were Michael Womack, who finished second in the Saddlebronc; Jacques Trahan finished third in the steer wrestling; Gauge Mcbride finished third in the bareback; and Macon Murphy finished third in the tie down. Also placing this weekend was Kaul Runfola, Thomas Wallace, Kincade Henry and Sam Wigans.
Jayden Gould is red hot for the Fillies and won the breakaway with a smoking 1.5 sec run. This is the second rodeo in a row that Gould has won. She has elevated herself into the second spot for the Southern Region breakaway title and a chance to go to the College National Finals Rodeo. Maison Davis finished second in the barrels, and Abbie Muckleroy finished fifth in the barrels to secure the win for the women’s team.
