Peterson Wins Second in All-Around at 2019 K-State Rodeo Iron Woman

Goodwell, Okla. — This year marked the seventh annual K-State Rodeo Iron Woman. Once again it was great day of tough competition with over 100 contestants and 300 runs in four events.

Many Oklahoma Panhandle State University women rodeo athletes attended the event, including Beau Peterson, Kaylee Smith, Shyanna Cahoy, and Sierra Smith. This was a great opportunity for the women’s team to get ready for the upcoming rodeo February 15, 16, and 17, which will be held in the same arena at the K-State University facility.

The girls have proven to be ready for the rodeos to come with many placing in the top 15 of several events. Beau Peterson won second overall trailing only five points behind the winner.

Peterson won the goat tying with a time of 5.907 seconds and won sixth in the breakaway with a time of 2.35 seconds. Peterson also placed eighth in the team roping partnered with older sister Michaela Peterson.

When asked about her experience and her preparation towards it, Beau Peterson states, “The iron woman was a very fun rodeo and pretty unique too. The amount of entries in all the events was awesome too and made it worth the trip! I enjoyed being able to run in Weber Arena before our college rodeo coming up! To prepare for this rodeo, I just roped and tied like I normally do and got my horses tuned up as well as myself so we were ready for it!”

Also in the all around top 15 was Sierra Smith in 10th place. Smith won fifth in the goat tying with a time of 6.968 seconds. Smith also won eighth in the breakaway with a time of 2.69 seconds. Kaylee Smith performed great in the goat tying placing second with a 6.66 second run and sixth with a time of 7.28 seconds. Shyanna Cahoy placed in two events. Cahoy placed 11th and 15th in the barrels with times of 12.909 and 12.976. Cahoy also placed 15th in the breakaway with a time of 3.3 seconds.

We are extremely proud of our Panhandle State cowgirls and we plan on keeping the winning tradition alive at our upcoming college rodeo!
