PRCA For The Record: Omak

Steer wrestler Pat Nogle’s ProRodeo résumé didn’t end with his 1976 and 1979 trips to the National Finals Rodeo. Eight years after his final NFR, he set two records at the Omak (Wash.) Stampede that have remained untouched for 32 years.

In 1987, Nogle made a 3.1-second run which helped him also set the two-head average record of 7.2 seconds. 

Throughout the duration of his ProRodeo career, Nogle won the Omak Stampede five times: 1978, 1981-82, 1987 and 1996.

As of 2019, the Oregon cowboy held three records within the Columbia Circuit:
• Most year-end steer wrestling titles: Eight (1976, 1978-80, 1984, 1986, 1990 and 1992) 
• Most consecutive titles: Three (1978-80)
• Longest span between first and last titles: 17 years (1976-1992)

Nogle was accustomed to stiff competition, starting when he faced some of the best steer wrestlers of his time in college rodeo. 

During his freshman year on the Walla Walla (Wash.) Community College team, Nogle finished sixth in the nation behind ProRodeo Hall of Famer Tom Ferguson, six-time NFR qualifier Larry Ferguson, 10-time NFR qualifier Dave Brock, 1974 NFR qualifier Lynn Perry and six-time NFR qualifier Bob Christopherson. 

Cowboys will have their shot at breaking Nogle's records, and the rest, at the Omak Stampede, Aug. 8-11.
