Panola College rodeo made a short trip this weekend to Pittsburg, Texas for the 3rd Southern Region rodeo. Canadian native bareback rider, Bailey Plaisier, increased his position in the standings with a 71 point ride. The score was strong enough to win 5th place at NETCC, and move Plaisier to number 9 in the Regional standings.
Laramie Johnson started the year with a victory and has not let up since. A time of 2.3 seconds in the breakaway event was fast enough for second place at the rodeo, but more importantly moves her to the number one spot in the Southern Region.
R.D. Carter, and partner Zach Moore, had a fast run in the team roping with a time of 6.9 seconds. The time was fast enough to win the 8th spot at the rodeo and give them points towards regional standings.
Bull rider, Gannon Ivy, has his eyes on the number one spot this season and a chance at a national title. He is now sitting in the number 3 position in the overall standings.
