Angie Meadors and Kollin VonAhn are dating.
She’s a seven-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier, and he’s the 2009 world champion heeler. Oh, and this past weekend, they both laid claim to their respective titles at the San Antonio Stock Show Rodeo. VonAhn won $19,323, and Meadors collected about $1,000 less.
Not a bad haul for the end of February. Meadors moved up to fifth in the world standings — it was her first paycheck of the 2012 season — while VonAhn is the top-ranked heeler. Those paydays can go a long ways in helping them back to Las Vegas in December.
But one of the cool prizes they received, Meadors said, were $5,000 fuel cards. Since the two often travel the ProRodeo trail together, they have, essentially, $10,000 to use to get down the road.
That’s the kind of perk one can win on.
