Harrison earns trip to College National Finals

Brandi Harrison of Pecos will be representing West Texas A&M College Rodeo Team at the 2002 College National Finals Rodeo June 11-15 in Casper, Wyoming. She will be competing in the breakaway roping.

Harrison is a member of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA).

The NIRA is the governing body of College Rodeo in the United States. There are eleven regions that comprise the NIRA represented by over 135 member colleges and universities and many other colleges and universities represented by independent members. There are over 3,500 student member rodeo athletes from the United States and beyond competing in over one hundred rodeos every year working toward the road to the College National Finals by way of the Conference Finals Rodeo.

Last year, 2001 was the inaugural year for the Conference Finals Rodeo held in Hobbs, N.M. This event, begun by NIRA last year is the final step for college athletes across the United States to advance to the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper. The CNFR is dubbed as the "Rose Bowl" of college rodeo where the nation's best college cowboys and cowgirls from the 11 different regions center into the CNFR arena in an effort to win national titles in saddle bronc, bareback, bull riding, steer wrestling, calf roping, team roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, and goat tying.

The all-around cowboy and cowgirl and the National Mens and Womens Teams are also determined at the national event in Wyoming. Student athletes will also be competing for over $200,000 in scholarships from the US Smokeless Tobacco Co. Scholarship Awards Program.
