UNION — The 2002 Eastern Oregon Livestock Show Rodeo wasn't as kind to bareback rider Bobby Mote as it was in 2001.

Last year's bareback champion had the high score Friday, 77 points on the Flying 5 bucking horse Mowhawk, but it was five points shy of his winning score a year ago.

"I did all I could on him, I guess," the Redmond cowboy said afterward.

The animals didn't help produce any 80-point scores Friday in any of the rough stock events, but not all is lost for the first-day contestants of the three-day rodeo. Mote's score would have gotten him fifth place a year ago.

Only three bull riders completed their rides, and Jeremy Aldous of West Richland, Wash., is in line to win some money. His 79-point ride on Why I Oughta would have been good for third place last year.

The saddle bronc scores were lower, too, but not as high as the others.

Benny Ramos of Fredonia, Ariz., led with a 74-point ride on Cheatin Heart, but that score is likely out of the money.

Not all the timed event scores were slower this year.

Barrel racer Rachael Sproul of Arlee, Mont., had a faster time this year, finishing the course in 17.45 seconds. Sproul was second last year to Amy Dale of Graham, Wash., and Dale was second to Sproul Friday at 17.76.

Kristie Hurn of Underwood, Wash., had the only other sub-18-second time, finishing in 17.98.

In calf roping, last year's third-place winner, Stran Smith of Tell, Texas, had a faster time this year and led the event after the main performance. Smith's time of 9.2 seconds was a half-second faster than his time last year, when he won $1,324 at the Livestock Show.

Charly Crawford of Canby and Matt Funk of Wenatchee, Wash., led the team roping with a time of 6.5 seconds.

The fastest steer wrestling time went to Sam Willis of Redmond, who led at 6.2 seconds.
