Rangers Rodeo set for February
November 11, 2020
ALVA, Okla. – The Northwestern Oklahoma State University Rodeo has been successfully rescheduled for Feb. 26-28.
"We are happy to announce that we are going to have the Northwestern Rodeo this year," head coach Stockton Graves stated. "It will be in February, so everyone will need to bundle up to stay warm. The team is glad to be getting back to rodeoing. We are excited to get back to work and have a full season."
The Northwestern rodeo team will have a large group of returners led by Bridger Anderson, the 2019 CNFR steer wrestling national champion.
"I am excited that we will have the Ranger Rodeo in Alva again in February," Athletic Director Brad Franz stated. "This event is a huge event for Northwestern Oklahoma State University, Alva and all of the great people of Northwestern Oklahoma. We look forward to the hundreds of contestants that will be here for the event. Coach Stockton Graves has an excellent team, and we are excited for them to compete."
The Northwestern rodeo was on track to have another successful season before the season was cut short due to Covid-19 in the spring. When the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association called off the season, the Rangers had two Rangers qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo, with three more just under the cut line for qualifying.
