Bradley and Cameron big winners in Vale, Vancouver


pair of area cowgirls came away with big chunks of change with some high finishes at two different Northwest Professional Rodeo Association sanctioned events over the past week.

Competing at the NPRA rodeo in Vale, Oregon, from June 30 through July 4, Goldendale’s Taylor Bradley topped the standings in the breakaway roping, finishing faster than any of the 67 other competitors in the event.

She finished her run in a blazing 2.2 seconds which led to a first place purse of $1,272.76. Her time was .3 seconds faster than the second place finisher, Wendell’s Alex Roe, who stopped the timers at 2.5 seconds.

Bradley again finished in the money at another NPRA rodeo, this time down the river in Vancouver in the same event.

She took seventh out of 78 total competitors in the breakaway roping in Vancouver and took home $423 in the process, finishing her run in 3.1 seconds.

However, she wasn’t the only local competitor to crack the leaderboard in the breakaway roping in Vancouver. Centerville’s Lexie Cameron blazed through her run in the event, finishing in a tie for second place with Weiser’s Rylee Potter in 2.5 seconds. She also earned $1,565.10 for the second place finish from the total rodeo purse of $52,113.60 in Vancouver.

It’s the second time Cameron has finished in the money in the breakaway roping. She finished in a tie for fourth during Glenwood’s Ketchum Kalf Rodeo on June 17 and 18, timing out at 3.7 seconds while earning $401.50.

Also at another NPRA rodeo in Toppenish on June 30 and July 1, a pair of Centerville natives left the valley with strong finishes in the breakaway roping.

Cassie Kayser took home a sizeable chunk of chance with her fourth place finish in 2.61 seconds out of 55 total participants in the event while Curtis Kayser ran to a sixth place showing in the same event.

Official results from Toppenish weren’t listed and the sports editor apologizes for not listing other local finishers.

The next two NPRA rodeos are set for July 21 and 22, with one taking place in St. Helens, Oregon, and the other in Sublimity, Oregon.
