Berryhill to Compete at College National Finals Rodeo

Thu, 28 May 2015 17:49:00 CDT

Berryhill to Compete at College National Finals Rodeo For the second consecutive year, Thompson Berryhill, agricultural economics senior at Oklahoma State University, will attend the College National Finals Rodeo June 14-20 to pursue the title of national champion.

The Talala, Oklahoma, native and President's Honor Roll recipient is the Team Roping Header Champion for the Central Plains Region, earning himself another chance at a national championship.

"It felt good to set a goal back in August and accomplish it in May," Berryhill said. "I can't wait to see if I can bring back a national championship for my school, my team and myself."

The 67th annual CNFR will be held in Casper, Wyoming, and will feature more than 400 of the top competitors from across the country.

"Thompson made his goal very clear this year," said Cody Hollingsworth, OSU Rodeo program and facilities coordinator. "To witness him not only qualify for nationals, but win the region was a very exciting moment."

The National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association is made up of 11 regions across the Unites States. The top three competitors in each event qualify to compete at the CNFR. After a week of events, the Championship Round will be held on Saturday, June 20.

"After all the time I have spent, it all comes down to one rodeo," Berryhill said. "I wouldn't have it any other way."

This year's OSU Rodeo Men's Team finished eighth overall in the region with the Women's Team finishing ninth. OSU Rodeo also had four competitors finish in the Top 15 of their event in the region.

"Thompson winning the region is another benchmark for this program," Hollingsworth said. "It brings our program to another level, closer to where we aspire for it to be."
