In Team Roping, Jarod Nooren (Ontario) and his partner Wendell Stanley (Oklahoma) had a 5.3 for 3rd in the Go-round and to jump to 3rd in the Aggregate. Ross Scully (Ontario) and Adam Schlecthy (Ohio) had a decent 6.2 plus 10-second penalty. Dustin Buchanan and Ty Etheridge (Georgia) won with a 5.1

Clint was close to the 8-seconds, and Ian was even the 7.9 - 8.0 second range on both before their hands came out of the rope, in the opinion of many watching the video feed.
