“I don’t even think it’s hit me yet,” Ohrt said. “I really look up to Martha, so to compete against her and Jordan Jo… it was awesome.”

Bookended between slates of bull riders, the WRWC barrel racers, team ropers and breakaway ropers put on a fast-paced show that had AT&T thundering.

Roping from the last position, 18-year-old Ohrt had Martha Angelone’s time of 1.96 seconds in her sights. “Frothy” fired across the line on a sharp calf that left straight and true, allowing the college freshman to set her snare with precision.

“I really wasn’t that nervous—I was just ready to rope,” Ohrt said. “I really though I broke the barrier. When I looked back and saw [it was good], I was like ‘Score!’ This is one of my fastest runs ever.”
