Former Coyotes win big at Cheyenne Frontier Days


Lane Livingston and Stevi Hillman, both former Weatherford College students, walked out of the rodeo arena champions at the Cheyenne Frontier Days this past weekend.

Hillman, who attended WC as a radiology technology student, made the fastest barrel race run of the rodeo with a 17.33 second win with her horse Sharpie. Her total time for all three runs was 52.44 seconds earning her $22,554 and the position as second best in the world standings.

Livingston, a former WC rodeo team member and current Tarleton State University student, won the tie-down roping title with his horse Young Gun with a three-round total tome of 38.0 seconds. His efforts earned him $16,085, doubling his season earnings and placing him at No. 39 in the world standings

“With only two full months left in the season, a big win in Cheyenne can boost a person in the standings and/or propel them towards making the World National Finals Rodeo,” WC Rodeo Coach Johnny Emmons said.

The Cheyenne Frontier Days, held in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is classified as the world’s largest outdoor rodeo with a 19,000-seat stadium and a 700-foot-long arena. The western celebration started in 1897 and draws in top professionals each year to compete for more than $1 million in cash and prizes.

“It’s the ‘Daddy of ‘Em All,’” Emmons said. “It’s one of the most prestigious rodeos in the world. It’s kind of a bucket list rodeo that all cowboys and cowgirls dream of competing in one day.”
