CSI college rodeo to be streamed live Friday and Saturday
“I’m just excited to be able to rodeo at home”
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) —The College of Southern Idaho is back to hosting rodeo’s this weekend after COVID-19 forced last year’s March event to be canceled.
“Last year, our rodeo was canceled on Thursday, the day before the rodeo and that was a tough pill to swallow for sure, so we’re just really happy we’re being able to compete and travel and host a rodeo,” " said CSI Head Rodeo Coach Steve Birnie. “It’s pretty exciting.”
CSI will host the Rocky Mountain Region Rodeo on Friday at 5 p.m. and the CSI Intercollegiate Rodeo on Saturday at 10 a.m.
“It’ll be nice because we’ve traveled a lot and they’re not very short trips, and I’m just excited to be able to rodeo at home,” said Logan Anseth CSI freshman tie-down roper.
This year will be a little different for fans. The public will not be allowed to watch the event either day, but both rodeos will be streamed online.
“It will also give our sponsors a shout-out because we have some great sponsors that have supported us through this whole past year of turmoil and chaos,” Birnie said.
The men are ranked first in the Rocky Mountain region and the women now sit in third.
“I just think that there is a lot of good athletes and they’re from everywhere from Canada to Texas to all over,” Anseth said.
Our expectations every week are to win,” Birnie said. “We want to win every event our kids are entered in and that’s all of them.”
