The crowd was looking sharp for Man Up Crusade Night as attendees demonstrated their advocacy to stop domestic violence by donning purple. 

Austin Foss of Terrebonne, Ore. took the top score in bareback with an 83, securing his place as the overall runner up.

Steer wrestler Cole Edge, Durant, Okla., currently No. 1 in world standings, did not disappoint, throwing the steer in just 4.7 seconds, which secured the best combined time of 9.4.

Cort Scheer, Elsmere, Neb., offered one of the best saddle bronc rides of the night and possibly the year with an 87.5 on Kool Toddy, considered one of the top horses in pro rodeo. She has won 2nd and 3rd place PRCA Stock of the Year Awards and multiple CRCF and CRC Awards.

Only two cowboys scored valid combined times in tie-down roping, with Dane Kissack scoring an 8.5 for a combined score of 25.9 and Ryle Smith scoring an 9.5 for a combined score of 18.2. Four missed throws, a broken rope and a calf that broke free before the six seconds were up meant no times for most of the other competitors.

Jaws dropped as Ivy Conrado of Hudson, Colo. timed an impressive 17.07 seconds, putting her at the top of the leaderboard.
