Texas cowboy Cole Clemons made a trip to Sisters, Oregon where he would successfully double down in the tie-down roping and team roping. A pay day in each event came the rookie’s way to make him your Resistol Rookie Athlete of the Week.

In Clemons’ main event of tie-down roping, he was a 20.0 in Round 1 to be out of the Go-Round but one thing about the big, outdoor rodeos is most are on an Average just like Sisters Rodeo so he had another shot. He came back in the Saturday night performance to stop the clock at 8.2 seconds to finish third in the Second Go-Round. He cashed in almost $2,000 from the Round 2 success.

On the team roping side of things, it was not on an Average meaning he has only one go. Clemons heeled for Cody Craig and the duo put up a time of 7.0-secnds to finish 11th overall. This was still good enough for a check coming in at around $880.

Clemons is your Resistol Rookie Athlete of the Week after sneaking into the All-Around race at Sisters Rodeo. He cinched his first All-Around win in professional rodeo to kick off his first Summer Run the right way.
