Coffeyville Community College has once again seen strong performances by their rodeo students.  Sophomore Lane Reeves has earned his way to the College National Finals Rodeo as a heeler in the Team Roping competition.  He earned his way by finishing 2nd in the region after competing at ten college rodeos.  Reeves will be one of only three students from Kansas qualifying for the National Finals.

Sawyer Barham, a heeler from Barnsdall, Okla., just missed his birth to the National Finals.  He was running third in the region until this weekend when he was bumped from the short round at Guymon.  Barham finished fifth in the region after winning both rounds and the average at the Fort Hays State University Rodeo with a time of 12.3.

Tyrney Steinhoff of Vinita, Okla. also had a strong season finishing 10th in the region for barrel racing.  She won the Garden City College Rodeo with a time of 27.82.
