Graceland’s rodeo team is off and running for the 2022-2023 season. The Stampede have plenty of new faces this year with 5 new freshmen looking to make an impact with our returning bull riders. The freshmen consist of Brady Barringer, Lance Bogner, Kendall Gayon, Carson Hoepker, and Grace Waldenberger. Our returners and leaders are Cauy Taff, Cash Tharp, and Hailey Tuel. They are coached by the second year Weston Pierschbacher. Currently Graceland stands in 8th on the Great Plains Conference standing with 480 points. They will be looking to have a lot of success at their next event at Buena Vista University and hopefully move up the rankings.
