Valley Stampede

The only home Missouri Valley College rodeo took place over the weekend of September 11-13, 2008. The team has to set up the arena at the Saline County Fairgrounds, provide livestock, compete, and still tear down when all is said and done. The Men's team finished 1st overall this year, and the women's team finished 2nd.

Despite dreary conditions including rain and mud, Rachel Slatton still competed in the barrel racing event on Thursday night pushing her horse into first place in her round.

James Earl Carter, a junior at Missouri Valley College, finished 8th in Bull Riding at the MVC Stampede over the weekend of September 11-13, 2008. Carter also finished 4th in the Men’s All-around, and 1st in Bareback riding.

A sad ending for one rider who missed his steer in the calf roping event.
