Go-To-Girl: Top 5 Ladies in The USTRC Standings
Coleman, from Pollock, Louisiana, established her No. 1 spot in just one day at the March 16 USTRC Louisiana Championships in West Monroe, Louisiana, produced by Watson Team Roping. The 40-year-old 4.5 header took home checks in four divisions: $960 for third in the #12.5 with B.J. Thompson, $1,335 for third in the #10.5 with Ethan Sparks, $1,915 for second in the #9.5 Exclusive with Becky Cannizzaro, and a winning check in the amount of $1,995 for catching four head in 36.64 with Bryan Caldwell in the #10.5 Exclusive for a day total of $6,205, giving her a neat $1,225 lead.
Barry swooped into March’s Top 5 No. 2 spot with time well spent at Xtreme Roping’s March 22 South Texas Championships in Gonzales. The outing earned the 27-year-old 4 header a total of $2,480 to add to the $2,500 she roped for right off the bat in the season at November’s Jingle Bell Classic in Stephenville.
Whiddon, a 4 header, was the early forerunner with $4,950 on the leaderboard. Though she has continued to add to her 2019 earnings with a winning check at the March 1 USTRC Florida Championships by Jx2 Productions, it was for the #10.5 World Series Qualifier, meaning her Cinch standings remain the same for now, and place her a mere $30 behind the No. 2 ranking.
Hailing from Mount Juliet, Tennessee, Davis, 25, began earning her 2019 USTRC winnings back in November, when she and Josh LeMaster took first in the #9 at the NTRL Northeast Regional. Davis, a 4 header, added money again in February at the Muddy River Classic, and most recently, had a heck of a $3,350-win with Josh Killian when they roped 40.36 seconds on four at Jx2 Productions’ USTRC Tennessee Championships on March 15 in Franklin, which has secured her arrival on the leaderboard.
Having previously occupied the No. 2 spot in the Cinch Ladies Standings, Shofner, 21, now sits at No. 4 with $4,265—earnings that were won early in the season at the Sonny Campbell Memorial US National Finals Qualifier.
