The returning West Coast Region champion Feather River College rodeo team proved once again it had the skills to make the small-town college stand out above the rest. In the first rodeo of the season, hosted by FRC, the Feather River men’s and women’s teams won first place.
The rodeo took place last Friday and Saturday at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds. Lassen College, University of Nevada Las Vegas, Cal Poly, Fresno State, West Hills College and Cal Poly Pamona all shot for the win, but couldn’t outride the local team.
“I think the rodeo went pretty good,” said FRC’s head rodeo coach, Jesse Segura. “And we haven’t even reached our potential yet. We have a lot of freshmen this year who are just learning how to do this.”
