Coach Lahaye's Thoughts
"I was very proud of how well everyone represented Montana Western. It was sad to be my last college rodeo but I couldn't have asked for a better bunch to go with. To have two representatives end up in the top 10 in the country was a great way to end the season."
The Bulldogs will begin the 2021-22 season this September at the Trapper Stampede in Cody, Wyo.
