Martha Angelone Crowned Texas Circuit Finals Year-End Champion

Martha Angelone is the reigning NFR Open Champion and will be heading back to the Open to defend her title after being crowned the Texas Circuit Finals Year-End Champion.

“I wasn’t nervous coming into tonight, but I wanted to go back there. It was such a special rodeo to me this year and I wanted to make sure I got back there. I messed up on my first calf and got the barrier... tonight I told myself I have to rope like me.”

Angelone beat out JJ Hampton by around $400 to win the title.

“I knew JJ has been roping good and she made a bad-ass run the other day and I knew I just had to go try to win something.”

Madison Outhier was named the average champion at the finals, going 11.1 on four head.
