Lone Star’s Joey Williams won it at all the Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) - becoming the fourth consecutive Lone Star pro team member to win the “Daddy of ‘Em All.”
Williams finished 4th in the qualifying rounds with a 4.4-second run. Thanks to the nearly $20,000 prize, the No. 1 finish in Wyoming vaulted her near the top of the PRCA standings.
"Winning Cheyenne with my kids there with me will be a memory we can look back on as a family," Williams said. "That is so special to me."
Jordan Jo Hollabaugh, 2021 world champion Sawyer Gilbert, and Tiffany Schieck also came home with gold buckles with victories in Cheyenne.
Hollabaugh won the very first breakaway championship in the 123rd Frontier Days Rodeo in 2019, clinching the title with a run of 4.18 seconds. She also earned $17,515 that weekend.
“It was the most exciting thing I’ve ever accomplished in my life,” Hollabaugh said. “The most exciting thing I’ve ever gotten to be a part of, and it was overwhelming. I don’t know if there will ever be a more exciting victory in my career.”
The 2020 rodeo in Cheyenne was canceled due to COVID.
In 2021, Gilbert won the championship round of 2021 CFD with a 4.4-second run, earning $17,525. The performance vaulted her into the top 10, and she didn’t look back from there on her way to the National Finals Breakaway Roping championship that December.
“There’s a prestige that comes with winning Cheyenne,” Gilbert said. “It’s one of those rodeos you win and have a bunch of people you don’t know texting you congratulations.”
In 2022, Tiffany Schieck, shared the CFD title with Macy Young, who were named co-champions after both stopped the clock at 4.0 seconds.
“It is awesome,” Schieck said, holding back tears.
