An historic first rodeo event hosted by Hastings College drew a crowd of more than 300 Friday night at Adams County Fairgrounds.
The Bobby Gottsch Jr. Memorial Hastings College Rodeo was going strong without a hitch on Friday night, much to the delight of HC rodeo coach Justen Nokes. Fifteen teams representing the Great Plains Conference locked horns at the inaugural event, giving competitors a rare opportunity to square off inside a pro-sized outdoor arena.
“I can’t believe it,” Nokes said between events. “It’s going better than I expected.”
