UNION — Rain dampened the final day of the 95th Eastern Oregon Livestock Show Sunday, but the participants were prepared for the soggy conditions.

"Something you gotta deal with," cowboy Blake Knowles said. "It's not baseball. You don't get a rainout."

Knowles, who is from Heppner, was happy with his 5.4-second steer wrestling performance Sunday. He finished second on the final day of the rodeo and received $1,464.06.

"I'm cold," he said, adding that in this sport "you gotta be prepared for anything."

Knowles was sixth last year (6.9). He shaved off 1.5 seconds Sunday.

"I was real satisfied," he said.

Buster Barton won the event (4.6 seconds) and picked up $1,769.07.

Dan Mortensen of Billings, Mont., turned in an 80 in saddle bronc riding Sunday. Mortensen was the only cowboy to score an 80 mark in this event all weekend. He took home $1,797.01.

Bobby Albertson's 86 score in bull riding earned him first place and $1,797.01.

Colby Olsen won the bareback with an 82. Stran Smith turned in the best time (9.2) in calf roping Friday.

Shane Erickson and Ryan Gallagher had the fastest time (6.2) in team roping.

Barrel racing was affected by the rain Sunday. The horses were unable to dart around the barrels quickly.

Rachael Sproul's time of 17.45 was the best on Friday, and she won the event.
