108th NWSS Rodeo comes to close

The 108th National Western Stock Show came to a close on Sunday with a near capacity crowd cheering on the rodeo contestants in the Denver Coliseum.

When it was all said and done, Cort Scheer from Elsmere, Neb., was the high money winner with $12,111 in saddle bronc riding. Scheer, won the first round, placed in round two, tied for first in the U.S. Bank Pro Rodeo Finals and earned the title with 254 points on three rides.

The three-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier tied in the final round with a teenager whose name is already familiar on the circuit. Scheer and Rusty Wright, the current National High School Rodeo Association saddle bronc champion each had 86-point efforts and won $1,450.

Both of them got on horses from the Calgary Stampede bucking string, Scheer road Until Kamloops. Wright got on Urgent Delivery. While the 86 earned Scheer the title, it moved Wright from 10th to 6th where he earned an additional $1,006.

The new team roping duo of Trevor Brazile, from Decatur, Texas and Travis Graves, from Jay, Okla., had the fastest time on three runs to win their first major title together. They each earned $7,558 for their total time of 16.3 seconds. Brazile is in the record books for having the most world titles and from the looks of things, he has no intention of slowing down.

There were three other former world champions that earned titles here. Mary Walker and her great horse Latte wowed the crowds on three separate occasions. The 2012 world champion earned the women's barrel race with a total time of 46.34 seconds on three runs.
