The Northeast Community College Athlete of the Week is Jason Alder, it was announced by the Northeast Athletic Department on Monday.
Alder helped the Hawks rodeo team kick-off their inaugural season over the weekend in River Falls, Wis. The O'Neill, Neb., native took second-place in the bull riding with a score of 77.
Overall, the Hawks finished in sixth-place out of 10 teams.
"All in all, it was a good experience for our program," head coach Fenton Nelsen said. "We all learned what we need to improve on to better our team standings for the next rodeo at North Platte this weekend."
Both teams will travel to Mid-Plains Community College for the second Great Plains Region rodeo of the season, beginning on Thursday and wrapping up on Saturday evening in North Platte, Neb.
