Congratulations to the Best All-Around!

As the rodeo season progresses, Team Resistol endorsees are hard at it, working to qualify for this year’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Team Resistols’ American Success TEAM

Kade Sonnier traded his baseball cleats for spurs at the Globe Life Field this last Saturday night. The previous college baseball star is coming home $100,000 richer after his 90.5-point ride.

Sarah Angelone added her first American Rodeo title win to her belt. She competed against her sister, Martha Angelone, in the final four, taking home the $100,000 with a lightning 2.16-second run.

Hunter Koch also won his first American Rodeo title this past weekend. Alongside Luke Brown, the duo roped first out in the finals with the quickest time of the night– 4.94 seconds.

Derrick Begay, with his partner Colter Todd, roped for second place in the finals to take home $25,000.

Houston, We Have a Winner

Leighton Berry is a back-to-back bareback champ. The Resistol endorsee won RodeoHouston for the second year in a row. With a 91.5-point ride on Calgary Stampede’s Agent Lynx, he walked away as the bareback champ with over $50,000 in his pocket. This win sets the three-time NFR qualifier up for success to qualify for another year.

Macon Murphy, the Louisiana native, won the Wildcard 1 Round at RodeoHouston with a 9.1-second run, against the toughest of the tough. It was the 2022 NFR qualifier’s first time moving to the Championship Shootout and his third time competing at RodeoHouston.

Ty Harris took home the 2024 RodeoHouston title in tie-down roping after having a rope off with his brother, Joel Harris. The brothers shared the same horse and both roped 8.2-second runs for the $50,000 prize. Ty Harris, ultimately, won the tiebreaker for the coveted title with a 9.6-second run.

Dakota Eldridge holds the RodeoHouston title in steer wrestling for the second time– his first being eight years ago. The 10-time NFR qualifier is currently sitting number one in the PRCA | RAM World Standings for steer wrestling after this win.

A Win as Big as the Rio Grande

Spencer Wright, uncle to Wright brothers– Rusty, Ryder, and Stetson, took home a much-needed check at the Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show and Rodeo. After winning on Macza Pro Rodeo’s Call Me Kindra, the Utah cowboy is adding $4,000 to this year’s earnings to sit him in the top 25 of the PRCA | RAM World Standings. It was this 2014 World Champion and four-time NFR qualifier’s first time winning this rodeo.



A Tip of Our Hat to Josh Edwards

Resistol congratulates NFR pickup man, Josh Edwards, on his retirement. After 25 years in the arena, he hangs his hat up as the unsung hero. He was the 2023 NFR Pickup Man of the Year (with honors).
