Barrel racer Jami Derflinger ended up with the 15th-fastest average (44.34 seconds), but only the top 12 advanced to the short go, which was won by Texas A&M's Hailey Kinsel in 14.06 seconds.

And bareback rider Tate Schwagler posted scores of 62.5, 74 and 59 in his three attempts, but his average of 195.5 points landed him 17th overall and outside of the top 12.
