Charleston County brings home first-ever State Backhoe Rodeo title

  • Saturday, August 9, 2014

Charleston County Public Works operator Matthew Bishop is the South Carolina American Public Works Association (APWA) Backhoe Rodeo champion. Bishop won the title this weekend at the annual APWA South Carolina Chapter event held in Greenville, South Carolina. This marks the first-ever win for Charleston County in the state competition.

Competitors must first win local and regional events to move onto the finals at the state level. The state backhoe rodeo is made up of three timed events that require both accuracy and speed. Bishop finished with a 44-second advantage over second place.

Matthew Bishop has been with Charleston County for five years and is one of 45 equipment operators on staff with Public Works. Bishop finished third in the state backhoe rodeo last year.
