Darin Suit became the first champion of the 2021 Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo. The Ames, Oklahoma, cowboy placed in three rounds and won the average title in steer roping, which took place Monday and Tuesday at Henry C. Hitch Arena in Guymon.

Suit pocketed more than $7,000 for the feat. But he wasn’t the only champion crowned Tuesday. Will McBride of Ogallala, Nebraska, won the legacy steer roping. He roped four steers in a cumulative time of 64.0 seconds.

But McBride also placed in the other competition, actually roping eight steers over two days. In all, he pocketed $3,822 in Guymon.
