Invitational, the first intercollegiate competition that U.T.C. has won. Left to right: team member are: Mr. Russell Black, team advisor, Lester Light, Ray Sorenson, Biad Simpson,. David Sheperd, Billy Harris, Paul Morris, Fred Hunter, Ed Sunderland, (Tim Clawson, absent) UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE AT PROVO MAY 30, 1972 A s i. X.. Utah Technical College won the annual BYU Rodeo of the National IntercollegiateRodeo-Association last Friday, May 12, competing with 14 colleges, including BYU, Utah State, and the University of Utah. It was the first state intercollegiate trophy in industrial leagues that UTC has ever won. Fred Hunter won the calf roping and also ribbon tying. (Ribbon tying is the event in which the contestant ropes the calf and takes a ribbon off the calf's tail, then runs back to the starting point.) Ray Sorenson won the bareback riding, and bull riding. Bull riding is the most dangerous of rodeo sports. Often a rank (mean) bull, when first out of the chute, will jump twice to unseat the cowboy, then twist on his third jump, and throw him into what rodeomen call 'the well' a half-circle made by the bull's twisting body. This writer has known a young man who lost his life during just such a trick when the bull stepped through his groin. Mr. Russell Black, instructor in UTC's Drafting Department and head of our rodeo team, said: "But Ray didn't have any trouble. He made it look real easy." Utah T echnical College chalked up 419 points to win this annual BYU Rodeo of the Rocky Mountain Region in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Their ultimate goal is to go to the National Finals in Boze-man, Montana, in June. Two teams from each region participate, and UTC is ranking third in the Rocky Mountain Region.There are no events for girls in these rodeos. Women's Lib-are you slipping, or are you really queasy about hopping on a bull's back? Fred E-Sunter Stuns Rodeo Fans Tim Clavson Wins H'gher Skii! Rodeo Event Student Director of the Na tional Intercollegiate Rodeo Association in Utah and Idaho is Fred Hunter, graduate this year of Utah Technical College's General Education Department. He is 21, stands aboutfive-foot-nine, and weighs about 150. Fred was born and raised in A merican Fork, and attended high school there. He became involved in rodeo when he was In high school, working with his father's practice stock, and also at Marv Pulham's calf roping school. He participated in the National Finals twice, in calf roping and bulkbgging. Dixie College was' where he took his first collegiate training, and he has been in rodeo since he first attended school there. Fred plans to attend the University of Arizona after graduating from UTC, and will probably major in business management.About his rodeo experience, Fred says, "My parents have always been associated with the rodeo circuit, and I grew up around that kind of atmosphere. Ever since I was old enough to do anything, I was always on a horse." Looks like it's paying off for you, Fredand for UTC. Tim Clawson, a student in his first year at Utah Technical College this year, won the steer wrestling event against UtahState University in Logan last week. Tim is five-ten-and-one-half, 23 years old, and when he hasn't been working as hard as lately, is 160 pounds. He was born in Brooks, Alberta, Canada, and moved here to Provo two years ago after his father went into the ranching business. His father was a saddle bronc rider and bull rider, and worked the Calgary Rodeo for years before ranching. Out of the seven boys in his family, Tim and his second oldest brother Wire the only ones who became interested in rodeo. Hisbrother-in-law is calf-roping champion of Canada, and about 8th in the world in the event. Tim learned much of how to handle steers from his brother-in-law. Tim plans to study in veterinary school in either Pullman, Washington, or Colorado in Denver when he graduates from UTC in general education. His wife, Ginger, is 21, and he met her here in the states, in Huntington Beach, California. She is studying elementary education at BYU. Asked about the differences between Canadian rodeos and American ones, Tim says that Canada is world-known for their saddle broncs, and especially in the western portion of the country, he adds, "Rodeo is quite the thing." With that much background, you should handle the National Finals pretty easily, Tim. Level at Provo The Wolverines swept eight of 11 events in trade skill competition against Utah Technical College of Salt Lake. The event was the annual VIC A (vocational Industrial Clubs of America) competition between the two schools. Utah Tech at Provo won first place in eight of the 11 events, and second place in 10. Salt Lake took two first places in competition, and was awarded the first and second place in cosmetology, where Provo did not compete because it has no such program. Over 50 students of both colleges competed, taking part in actual performance of tradesinvolved.
