Brazile ahead in All-Around early at rodeo

Staff Writer

Trevor Brazile, the 2002 National Finals Rodeo All-Around Cowboy champion, made a strong bid for his fourth All-Around title at the West of the Pecos Rodeo, placing first in one event, second in another and taking the lead in the average in those two events after the first two days of slack competition at the 120th anniversary rodeo.

The All-Around title goes to the cowboy winning the most money in more than one event, and Brazile, who has three Pecos rodeo titles in the past eight years, teamed with Wayne Fornier to take first place in the opening go-round of team roping, and also stands first as of now in the average in steer roping, after placing second in the first go on Monday.

Brazile and Fornier lead in the average following a tie for sixth place so far in the second go-round of team roping, through Tuesday morning. Brazile, from Anson, and Fornier, of El Paso had a 5.7 time on their first steer and collected $2,022 for their effort. They stand at 13.3 through two attempts ahead of Kevin Stewart of Glen Rose and Martin Lucero of Stephenville, who are at 14.1 seconds.

Buzzy and Scott Bierschwale are in third place, at 14.3 seconds, and were second in the first go-round, with a 6.6 second effort. It netted the Hill Country cowboys $1,674.

In steer roping, Brazile leads on the average early in the third go-round with a combined 46.5-second time on his three attempts. Roy Angermiller of Uvalde is next with a combined 53.1-second time, while Andrews' Dan Fisher is third, at 54.7 seconds.

Fisher won the first go-round with a 13.3 time and took home $1,901, while Brazile was next, at 13.7 seconds, which was good for $1,574. In the second go-round, Scott Snedecor of Uvalde had the best single time so far, a 12.0 effort, to win first place and the $1,901, while Oklahoma cowboy Chet Herren was next, at 12.9 seconds, and collected $1,574.

Leo Campbell of Amarillo was third in the first go-round with a 15.7 second time and Brice Davis of Abilene placed third in the second go with a 14.2 effort. Both earned $1,246.

J.R. Olson of Sheridan, Wyo., had a 12.7 time to take the lead in the third go, ahead of Shorty Garlen of Pawhuska, Okla., at 15.2 seconds and Larry Duggan of Canyon, at 15.5 seconds.

The third go-round of steer roping, and the second go in the other events, will continue tonight, at the official opening of the West of the Pecos Rodeo, and run through finals. The Top 12 finishers in all events will then come back for the finals on Saturday night at the Buck Jackson Rodeo Arena.

Along with steer roping and team roping, the first go-round of calf roping and steer wrestling also were completed on Monday. In calf roping, Joseph Gernentz of Mission had a 9 flat effort on his first attempt to take first place and $1,612, beating out Scott Baker of Floresville by one-tenth of a second. Baker earned $1,401, while Hobbs cowboy Marty Jones was third, with a 9.4 time, earning him $1,191.

So far in the second go-round, Neal Felton of Mountain Home holds the lead with a 9.4 second time, while Ryan Brockenbush of Lexington, Tx., is next, at 9.8 seconds and Jason Timmerman of New Braunfels is third with a 10 second time. For the average, J.D. Kibbe of Portales, N.M. and Tommy Guy of Abilene are tied for first at 21.3 seconds, and Ross Hinds is third, with a 21.9 second time on two attempts.

In steer wrestling, Mickey Gee of Wichita Falls leads in the average with a combined 9.2 time, after a 5.1 effort in the first go-round and a 4.1 on his second attempt. He leads as well in the second go and finished tied for third with Josh Luke of Pipe Creek in the first go-round. Sam Koenig of Cross Plains took first there and earned $1,200, and Dusty Powell was second at 4.5 seconds and took home $993. Gee and Luke both earned $682 by tying for third.

In the average, Gee has a two second lead over Jarrod Pillans of Streetman, with Hunter Cure of Electra in third place, with a combined 12.3-second time.
