PRCA Standings Shuffle: 11 Move Up In Top 15

The 2019 season is starting to heat up as the summer run approaches. The total prize money paid out is already $3 million ahead of where it was at this point in 2018. As of May 12, PRCA cowboys had won $16,013,458. As of May 13, 2018, the total was $13,014,210.

May 6-12 offered a bit of downtime, as PRCA athletes hit eight competitions across the U.S. and Canada worth a collective $313,743, which gave 11 cowboys a boost within the Top 15. 

Cowboys know it’s easier to maintain a position at the top than it is to play catch-up when trying to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Every dollar counts, and making the Top 15 in the PRCA | RAM World Standings early establishes a solid base and builds a cowboy’s confidence as the season picks up pace.

Nobody knows this better than saddle bronc rider Jake Watson. The Canadian cowboy moved from 10th to seventh this week thanks to winning the Kananaskis Pro Rodeo with an 85-point ride on Kesler Championship Rodeo’s Sugar N Spice in Coleman, Alberta. He also won the Stavely (Alberta) Indoor Pro Rodeo with an 84-point ride.

Cowboys will have 13 PRCA competitions to choose from this week, including the Redding (Calif.) Rodeo, which is part of the ProRodeo Tour. With the season still young and plenty of prize money on the table, big jumps are sure to happen again. 

The following cowboys also moved up within the Top 15 last week.

Two Spots

• Stephen Culling moved from 12th to 10th in steer wrestling. 
Chet Herren moved from 14th to 12th in steer roping. 

One Spot

Junior Nogueira moved from ninth to eighth in team roping heeling. 
Kaleb Driggers moved from 10th to ninth in team roping heading.
Boudreaux Campbell moved from 10th to ninth in bull riding.  
• Taylor Broussard moved from 11th to 10th in bareback riding.
Ryan Jarrett moved from 13th to 12th in tie-down roping.
Wyatt Denny moved from 14th to 13th in bareback riding. 
Dakota Eldridge moved from 14th to 13th in steer wrestling. 
• Trey Kimzey moved from 14th to 13th in bull riding. 

Cowboys on the bubble for a spot in the Top 15 can find themselves a few dollars short of qualifying for the Wrangler NFR. The following cowboys climbed the standings to No. 16.

• Team roping heeler Chase Boekhaus moved from 17th and is $374 away from breaking into the Top 15. 
• Tie-down roper Adam Gray moved from 18th and is $1,652 away from breaking into the Top 15.
• Bull rider Cole Melancon moved from 17th and is $138 away from breaking into the Top 15. 

Fans can catch the Redding action on, then check back with next week to see who the new leaders are in the PRCA | RAM World Standings.
