Northeast Texas Community College Rodeo was back in the saddle last weekend to start off the 2021 semester with a Rodeo hosted by Texas A&M University Commerce. The event was held at the Hopkins County Civic Center in Sulphur Springs, Texas.
Garrett Fields was a bright spot for the Eagles with earning a seventh place finish in Steerwrestling.
