Chuck Schmidt, BHSU sophomore history major from Keldron, won the 2008 Saddle Bronc Championship at the 60th annual College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR) in Casper, Wyo. Each year over 400 cowboys and cowgirls from over 100 universities and colleges across the country compete against the best-of-the-best of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Individual event champions are crowned in saddle bronc, bare back, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, and goat tying.

The BHSU Rodeo Program has seen renewed growth and success the last several years. According to Schmidt, he is happy to bring a national championship back to the University. The last national college championships won by BHSU were in 1982 and 1983.
