Three Northwestern Colorado High School Rodeo Team members traveled to Cortez Saturday and Sunday for the first Colorado State High School Rodeo Association rodeo of the year. Cody and Tyler Miles of Parachute and C.J. Vondette of Rifle made the trip worthwhile, collecting prize money, awards and points for their efforts.

The Miles boys dominated the Steer Wrestling event, with rookie freshman Tyler taking the win on Saturday and Grand Valley High School junior Cody winning the event on Sunday. The younger Miles would also place sixth in the dogging on Sunday and would bring home the average buckle in that event as well.

Big brother Cody teamed up with Joel Schlegel of Eagle to pick up a sixth-place finish in the Team Roping. Cody would also collect a second place check in the Calf Roping on Sunday.

Vondette, a Rifle High School junior, won the girls’ all-around title. Vondette won Sunday’s pole bending event and cruised to a third-place finish on Saturday. She placed fourth both days in the barrel racing and would also pick up a check for a third-place finish in the breakaway roping on Saturday.

Other area competitors Lyndsay Jewell and C.T. Brown, both of Rifle, also competed in Cortez.

Colorado State High School Rodeo Association competition continues on April 8-9 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Golden then moves to the Colorado State University Equine Complex in Ft. Collins the following weekend.
