Brody Cress

Saddle bronc rider Brody Cress, a 2014 Cheyenne East graduate, was tossed from Power River Rodeo’s Show Me Again just 2.4 seconds into his ride during the eighth go-round of the National Finals Rodeo on Thursday night in Las Vegas.

Despite the no-score, the 22-year-old remains 12th in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s world standings with more than $121,587 in earnings this season. Rusty Wright and Chase Brooks both scored 90 points to split the round win in saddle bronc.

Other winners Thursday included: Shane O’Connell (bareback riding); Tyler Waguespack (steer wrestling); Bubba Buckaloo and Chase Tryan (team roping); Ryan Jarrett (tie-down roping); Taci Bettis (barrel racing) and Chase Dougherty and Joe Frost (bull riding).
