CASPER, Wyo. – A tendency to finish strong served Cache Hill well. The University of Providence bareback rider entered the short go of the College National Finals Rodeo in 11th place, just barely making the 12-rider cut, but a final ride of 79 points earned him a 7th place national finish.
Riding in his fourth CNFR of his four-year collegiate career, and his second straight short go, Hill didn’t have a great start to the last rodeo of the year. He rode well, but a poor horse draw on his first two rides put him on the bubble to make the finals.
During the Thursday performance, he sealed his spot in the short go with a ride of 77 points, his best of the rodeo. That put him in 11th place but he wasn’t done making improvements.
When the lights were brightest, Hill was at his best. His ride of 79 was his best CNFR score in the last two years and vaulted him up four spots to finish inside the top-8.
Hill ends his Argo career as the program’s most decorated cowboy, as a four-time national qualifier and two-time top-eight finisher.
