Goldendale's Logan Siebert is shown competing in the tie down roping at the Ketchum Kalf Rodeo in Glenwood. Over the weekend in Cottage Grove, Oregon, Siebert finished in the money in the tie down roping for the second time this NPRA rodeo season.

Former Goldendale High School graduate Logan Siebert came away with a chunk of change over the weekend at the Cottage Grove Rodeo in Oregon last Friday and Saturday, finishing in the money again this season in the tie down roping event.

In Cottage Grove, Oregon, about 130 miles south of Portland, Siebert joined Goldendale residents Hank Thompson, Taylor Bradley, and Jim Jack Davenport, along with White Salmon's Aaron Kreps, as local competitors who made the trip across the river to the town of around 10,000 people.

Siebert was the only one of the group to come away in the money, finishing sixth in the tie down roping with a 17.5 second time. The 2014 Goldendale High School graduate pocketed $120.04 from the finish, marking the second time this summer he's finished among the winners in the event at a Northwest Professional Rodeo Association sanctioned even.

At one of the first NPRA rodeos this season, the Alder Creek Pioneer Picnic and Rodeo in Cleveland, Siebert took second in the tie down roping with a 12.7 second finishing time while coming away $576.00 for the runner-up finish.

Along with the tie down roping, Siebert also competed in the team roping event with Stephenville's Clayton Eggers but didn't finish among the top six teams.

Thompson competed in the tie down roping along with Siebert, Bradley in the breakaway roping, and Davenport in the cow milking events. Kreps also was in the team roping with Asotin's John Mendoza, but no other county competitors came away with money finishes.

The next NPRA sanction events are coming up this weekend. A pair of NPRA events, both in Oregon, will run Friday and Saturday. One will take place in St. Helens and the other in Sublimity.

Both Siebert and Bradley will be in St. Helens this weekend competing again. Siebert again will be in the tie down roping and team roping (with Eggers as partner) while Bradley will go in the breakaway. Ellensburg's Lexie Cameron also will run in the breakaway.

Bradley, Cameron, and Siebert also are slated to compete in Sublimity over the weekend as well in the same events.

After Sublimity and St. Helens, there's nine more rodeos before the Klickitat County Fair and Rodeo, which is set for Aug. 25 and 26.
