In 2009, the administration of Colorado Northwestern Community College took the initial steps to create the first ever CNCC Collegiate Rodeo Team and the wheels haven’t stopped turning since.
In May of 2010, CNCC hired Head Coach Jed Moore to generate the foundation of a team and rehabilitate the Columbine Park facilities. Since then, it has been a whirlwind of rodeo related activity around our town of Rangely, CO. In conjunction with the local Septemberfest celebration, CNCC hosted the first annual Rock N’ Bull event (Barrel racing to be added in 2011), current equine students have helped to form the CNCC Rodeo Club and have held several fundraisers to raise exposure and monies for club activities and rodeo scholarships.
In February of 2011, CNCC administration officially gave the “green light” to Coach Moore to begin recruiting student athletes for the 2011-2012 Rodeo Year. The roster is being filled as students from all over the country climb aboard for the opportunity to be part of a brand new program from the ground up.
CNCC Rodeo is based on the values that have been upheld by cowboys and cowgirls for the last 150 years, honesty, integrity, determination, discipline and hard work.
We will compete in the Rocky Mountain Region of the NIRA, traveling to rodeos throughout Utah and Southern Idaho.
