The Student Council voted to form a Rodeo Association in
1949 and over 100 athletes participated in the first intercollegiate
competitions that year. The rodeo continued between 1974 and 1977 as the
Tri-City Intercollegiate Rodeo, which was co-sponsored with Mesa Community
College. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Posse took over sponsorship after 1977.
The last record of events was in 1981.
Cowboys from the Rodeo Association are photographed on the
steps of Matthews Library as publicity for the organization.
