College National Finals Rodeo..1st Performance Results

 

Colorado Native represents Texas College at College National Finals Rodeo well

 

            CASPER, Wyo. (June 16, 2015) –  After three years of competing in the breakaway roping for Western Texas College (Snyder), Tamara Tunink from Fowler, Colo., finally qualified for her first College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR).

            She came into the Casper Events Center with renewed confidence after being reserve champion in the Southwest Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. That confidence has served her well as she took the early lead in her signature event with a total time of 9.1 seconds on three head. Her fastest of three runs here was in the first round last Sunday where she stopped the clock in 2.6 seconds. That tied her for eighth place.

            She came back during slack competition with a 3.1. Then on Tuesday night, she had a 3.4. Last year, a total time of 9.1 qualified for the finals here in fourth place, so Tunink is looking good for a championship round qualification this year.

            “She is the kind of student athlete that you want,” her coach Greg Rhodes said. “She works as hard in the classroom as she does in the arena. She’s on-time, dedicated and willing to do anything. She throws a perfect loop and I’m pleased to see her confident and doing well here.”

            Tunink is majoring in ag business and plans to transfer to Texas Tech University next fall to complete her education. She has one year of eligibility left and will be hoping for a second CNFR qualification next year.

            Clark Adcock from the University of Tennessee – Martin is having a great CNFR. Adcock who just received his Bachelor’s degree is leading the overall standings in the tie-down roping with a total time of 33.6 seconds. He was also successful in two rounds of team roping. He has his third team roping run on Friday and is in great shape to make the finals in two events. Adcock also leads the men’s all-around standings with 175 points so far.

            Competition continues here on Wednesday with the second performance beginning at 7 p.m.
