For the past 10 years, Rod Paschke has been the head coach at Dawson Community College and is currently serving his second year as the Big Sky Faculty Director.
When she was a student at Dawson Community College, Britany Fleck needed a horse to break for a class she was taking. A filly named Dasher Dude filled the bill.
Little did Fleck know that filly would help break her on to rodeo's biggest stage.
Riding Dasher Dude - also known as Rootie - Fleck became the first North Dakota woman to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo in barrel racing. The 10-day event begins Thursday.
The Dawson Community College Rodeo team will finish their season with the college national finals rodeo June 12-18 in Casper, Wyoming. In each event, the top three individuals from the region advance to the finals. Although DCC had several individuals in the top ten, only Jodi Gilson placed in the top three to advance on to the finals. Jody is a sophomore competing in the the barrel racing from Quesnel, BC, Canada. Congratulations to the DCC team for a great year and good luck to Jody.
The DCC Rodeo Team competes in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association's Big Sky Region. The Big Sky Region is made up of thirteen colleges and universities from Montana and Wyoming.
