Sarah Angelone Breaks the Ice at Rodeo Austin Breakaway Roping to Hold the Lead

Sarah Angelone was the first lady to every back into the box to rope a calf at Rodeo Austin and she set the pace. With a 2.6-second run, she went to the lead and is currently tied at that spot with Makayla Boisjoli.

Although Boisjoli knew this calf from the tie-down roping in Tucson, the calf turned its head as soon as she nodded making her pull up to get out of the barrier.

“I just really try not to panic because when you panic, stuff starts going wrong so I just really tried to get back up to the front and get him roped,” she said.

Angelone got the breakaway roping started just right in Austin.
