BROOKINGS — Tarin Hupp of Huron has qualified to compete at the College National Finals Rodeo, which begins today and continues through Saturday in Casper, Wyo.

Hupp finished third in the goat tying in the Great Plains Region after competing in 10 regional rodeos to earn her spot on the national team for South Dakota State University.

Hupp recently completed her freshman season on the SDSU rodeo team.

The SDSU women’s team finished second in the region and the men’s team won the regional title. 

Four competitors on the women’s team and six from the men’s team qualified for College National Rodeo Finals.

The 65th CNFR is celebrating its 15th year in Casper, Wyo., and is held at the Casper Events Center.

The CNFR is the “Rose Bowl” of college rodeo. It is where the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association crowns individual event champions in saddle bronc riding, bare back riding, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, and goat tying.

National team championships are also awarded to both men’s and women’s teams.

Over 400 cowboys and cowgirls from over 100 universities and colleges compete in Casper each year.

Contestants compete all year in one of the NIRA’s 11 regions for a chance to rope or ride at the CNFR.

The top three students in each event, and top two men’s and women’s teams from the NIRA’s 11 regions will qualify for the CNFR.
