Powell product competes at PRCA Cody Stampede

Posted

Of the many contestants who roped, rode, raced and wrestled at the Cody Stampede, one was from Powell. 

Luke Wozney competed in the bareback riding portion of the annual pro rodeo hosted from July 1-4 at the Cody Stampede Rodeo Grounds. Wozney did not place, as he didn’t complete his ride on the horse Cross Fire. 

While he didn’t go home with any earnings, it was the Powell product’s first Cody Stampede and an overall surreal experience.

“It was cool to be in Cody at that big of a rodeo,” Wozney said. “Representing Powell was a neat experience. It’s not very often you get to represent your hometown that close to town.”

A 28-year-old, Wozney has been a pro rodeo member since 2018. He has won more than $15,000 in earnings in his career and earned $8,821 in the 2019 season. 

Wozney — whose father, Gilbert, works as the pressman assistant at the Tribune — has placed in the top five of several rodeo events in his career. That includes the New Year’s Eve Buck & Ball in Gillette, which he won. 

As Wozney continues his career, he hopes the Cody Stampede is a catalyst that takes him to new heights. 

“I can continue to improve by learning from what happened in Cody and going from there,” he said.

Wozney wasn’t the only competitor from Park County, either: Annaliese Allshouse of Cody posted a time of 18.38 seconds in barrel racing.
