Tie-down roper Jerome Schneeberger didn’t win a single go-round during Super Series V at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
In fact, he didn’t even place until Tuesday’s final run of the series. But the 11-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier roped consistently, posting runs of 11.3 seconds, 11.0 and 11.1. That was good enough for second place in the three-head average, which is worth $2,250.
Add that to the $500 he earned for his third-place finish Tuesday, and that’s how Schneeberger advanced into RodeoHouston’s semifinals, which begin Wednesday. He will be joined by Tuf Cooper, who won Super Series V with $7,000, Shane Hanchey and Nate Baldwin.
