RENO, Nev. --- When Lindsay Sears arrived at the Reno Rodeo Arena, it was on crutches, but that didn’t stop her from winning the barrel racing here aboard her stellar horse Martha.

Sears was riding her back-up horse last week at a rodeo in High River, Alberta. After completing their run, she caught a gate with her leg and fractured her fibula. Sears got on a horse for the first time after the incident on Wednesday. She competed at a rodeo in Williams Lake, British Columbia, before getting on a plane to come here.

She had won both preliminary rounds of competition and had a commanding lead in the over-all standings. She has a brace on her leg and when she is not on the back of a horse, she is using crutches. While she and Martha did not have the fastest time in the final round, she still won the Reno Rodeo Spurs with a total time of 51.1 seconds.

The big money winner here was the reigning world champion bull rider, J.W. Harris from May, Texas. He was one of only two men to cover both bulls. His total score of 185 points earned him $17,214. The other bull rider successful in the finals was Steve Woolsey from Payson, Utah. They each had 94-point efforts. Woolsey was aboard the bull named Hawaiian Ivory from Flying U Rodeo Company. Harris rode Firebird from Big Bend Rodeo.

Dusty Hausauer won his first pair of Reno Rodeo championship spurs. It’s especially rewarding for the Dickinson, N.D., native as he is on his way to his second Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He has won some of the most prestigious rodeos in the nation including the “Daddy of em All” in Cheyenne, Wyo., and the Ellensburg Rodeo in Washington.

“Anytime you can do well at a big rodeo like this, it’s great,” Hausauer said. “Reno’s rodeo is full of tradition and it’s one that you dream of winning.”

B.J. Campbell, from Benton City, Wash., won his third set of Reno Rodeo spurs here. Campbell finished the steer wrestling atop the leader board and also earned the all-around title. He qualified for the finals in the team roping, but didn’t have much luck there. He earned his second all-around title here by virtue of being the high money winner who competed in two events.

The Reno Rodeo is the third of eight of the Gold Tour Rodeo’s n the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Wrangler Million Dollar Tour presented by Justin Boots, Not only will the money won here count towards world standings, it will also help contestants qualify for the tour playoffs.
