Dawson Loewen also qualified for the steer wrestling finals, running a 4.8 in the long round and a 19.0 in the finals to finish with a 23.8 average, good enough for ninth overall.
The Texans qualified two for the team roping finals, including Spencer Clements who rode with Texas Tech's Brock Corman. The duo placed seventh, running a 6.8 in the long round and an 11.8 in the finals to finish with an 18.3 average. South Plains' Darian Gonzales joined up with Weatherford's Chance Thiessen, with the pair clocking a 6.3 in the long round before missing in the finals, picking up 10 points.
