A Sheridan College bull rider will once again be competing in the college rodeo championship spotlight.

The College National Finals Rodeo starts on Sunday, June 9th at Casper.

Bull rider Wyatt Phelps is the lone representative from Sheridan College that will be competing in the week-long event.

At last year’s CNFR, he went 1 for 4 on his bull rides, but because the bulls dominated the competition, Phelps’ one ride was good enough for him to finish in 4th place overall.

Now that he’s been there and done that, he says this year, he plans to take the same approach as last year.

“It’s kind of business as usual. You kind of make a blueprint of how you want to go about it, and then just stick to that for the most part. Try not to change it up too much. There’s always positives to look at, even when there’s a lot of negative going on and I was lucky last year, that I finished so well, even though I didn’t ride as well as I could have.”

All competitors at the CNFR are guaranteed 3 rides in their respective event.

The top 12, total on 3 come back next week Saturday for the championship short-go.

According to the draw, Phelps will have his first ride on Sunday.

His second ride is scheduled for Tuesday morning, and his third ride is Tuesday evening.

He will then have to wait out the rest of the week, to find out if he’s in the finals.
