Lane Siebert is shown competing in the tie down roping event during the high school event in Goldendale on May 19. Siebert finished among the leaders in the All-Around during last weekend's Tillamook County Rodeo in Oregon.

Goldendale High School cowboy Lane Siebert cracked the men's All-Around list at the Tillamook County Rodeo, a Northwest Professional Rodeo Association sanctioned event, over the weekend in Oregon, finishing in the money in his only event at the rodeo about 75 miles east of Portland.

Lane and his brother Logan, a 2014 GHS graduate, were two of the four Goldendale cowboys in attendance in Tillamook, along with Justin and Neal Slater.

Lane Siebert was up in his only event, the tie down calf roping, Friday evening in Tillamook, where he recorded a 15.4 second time. Although he wouldn't find out until after the Saturday performance that his time placed him third in the event and came with a $399 prize out of the $15,812.75 purse that was paid out to the high finishers in each event.

Siebert came in at No. 14 in the rodeo's All-Around list with 47 points. Terrebonne's Charlie Barker topped the list with 299.5 points and Ellensburg's Jason Minor was the All-Around runner-up with 234 points.

The rodeo in Tillamook was the second time this NPRA Rodeo season that Siebert finished in the money. He also took home $121.20 when he finished sixth in the team roping at the Alder Creek Pioneer Rodeo on June 9 and 10 in Cleveland. He partnered with Yakima's Grady Adams in Cleveland to finish in the money with their 12.3 second time.

Logan Siebert also competed in Tillamook in the tie down roping and team roping but didn't place. Goldendale's Neal and Justin Slater also were there and were together in the team roping and Justin in the novice bronc but neither finished in the money.

Lane Siebert and Adams also were partners in the team roping event throughout the high school rodeo season, finishing third overall season-wide and fourth at the state rodeo in Kennewick in late May. Their high school rodeo season isn't over yet. Both will compete together in the team roping at the Cinch National High School Finals Rodeo from July 15-21 in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

Justin Slater also will attend the National High School Finals Rodeo. He will compete in the saddle bronc riding. A full story of the high school rodeo club going to nationals will be published in the coming weeks.

Next up in the NPRA series is a couple of rodeos taking place in early July.

The Yoncalla Rodeo in Oregon is set for Sunday and Monday while the Vale Fourth of July Rodeo and the 47th annual Vancouver Rodeo will both run from July 4-7. There also is an NPRA sanctioned event in La Pine, Oregon, on July 7 and 8.
