The state high school rodeo finals were in Prineville this past weekend, and a number of local athletes performed well.

PMG PHOTO: LON AUSTIN - Nate Clark of Spray was one of the handful of Central Oregon athletes to place at the OHSRA State Finals in Prineville. Clark qualified for nationals in steer wrestling and also finished ninth in tie-down roping.

The Oregon High School Rodeo Association State Finals were held Wednesday through Saturday, June 8-11, at the Crook County Fairgrounds.

As expected, it was a competitive state finals, with several events not decided until Saturday's short go-round. Not surprisingly, bareback riding had the stiffest competition, with five riders vying for four spots in the High School National Finals.

PMG PHOTO: LON AUSTIN - Wyatt Wood of Prineville came up just short of his season goal, finishing second in the state in bareback riding at the OHSRA State Finals.Prineville's Wyatt Wood, who has signed to compete collegiately at Cal Poly, won Thursday's first go-round with a score of 75. Veneta's Mason Stuller, who won the at nationals two years ago, was second with a score of 74. Friday Wood made his ride first, before rushing to Ward Rhoden Stadium for graduation, then had to wait to see how he fared. This time the places were reversed, with Stuller taking first with a score of 76 and Wood finishing second with a score of 69. That left Wood leading by a single point heading into Saturday's short go-round.

Stuller earned a score of 82 on his ride Saturday, then had to wait briefly to see how Wood's ride went. Wood did everything he could, but his horse did not buck well and he had to settle for a score of 75, good enough for fourth place. That left Wood just short of the state title as Stuller took the win. Clint Rutherford and Tyrell Holmes tied for third place, taking the two final berths to nationals, while Garrett Blackwell, who was third heading into the short go-round failed to make a qualified ride and wound up fifth.

"It's a little heartbreaking," Wood said of finishing second. "I had a goal set in mind to be a state champion, but there was nothing I could have done different. I just rode that horse for what it was and did everything I could. At the end of the day, it wasn't up to my decision. But I feel really good heading into nationals. I feel really prepared for it."

Wood was far from the only Central Oregon competitor to have a solid state finals, nor was he the only one to qualify for nationals.

Fossil's Clint Rutherford qualified for the national finals in both bareback and saddle bronc riding, while Spray's Nathan Clark and Carter Boise both qualified for nationals in steer wrestling. Clark was also ninth in tie-down roping, while Boise finished 10th.

Powell Butte's Justin England and Callen Whitaker did not make it to nationals, but did qualify for the Silver State International Rodeo with seventh and eighth place finishes, respectively in saddle bronc riding.

Meanwhile, Paulina's Lucas Teskey teamed with header Elsie Jonas of Battle Ground, Washington, and improved from 10th to sixth place in team roping. Prineville's Ross McKinney also qualified for Silver State, taking eighth place in bull riding, while Mitchell's Coy Mathiasen finished eighth in steer wrestling.

The final Central Oregon cowboy to finish in the top 10 of an event in the final standings was La Pine's Landen Roggenkamp, who finished seventh in steer wrestling.

PMG PHOTO: LON AUSTIN - Mecarte Cook of Culver came back after a tough Thursday to win in the short go-round of goat tying at the OHSRA State Finals in Prineville. Cook finished in seventh place in the final standings for the event.In girls events, Culver's Mecarte Cook failed to score on Thursday in goat tying, but came back to take the short go round in the event with a time of 8.47 seconds as she finished in seventh place in the event.

"I'm pretty happy," said Mecarte, who plans to attend Blue Mountain Community College next year and continue her rodeo career. "The goal was to move up, but I already flagged out my first run. So then, my goal was to just do the best I can. Everybody who made it to nationals deserved every bit of it. They worked hard."

Powell Butte's Laney Moore wound up seventh in reined cow horse and 10th in girls cutting. Other Central Oregon cowgirls to finish in the top 10 in the final standings included Redmond's Brooke Blevins, who finished third in breakaway roping and sixth in goat tying, and Adriene Steffen of Sisters, who took fifth in pole bending and reined cow horse along with a ninth place finish in goat tying.

Bend's Zoey Miller finished ninth in barrel racing and 10th in both pole bending and goat tying.

Several other Central Oregon athletes competed in the state finals, but did not qualify for the short go-round. In Thursday's first go-round of team roping, Blevins combined with Terrebonne's Cutter Wollard to take ninth in the round. Culver's Sage Smith took 10th in the second go round of goat tying, while Powell Butte's Ryann Mitchell finished eighth in the second go-round of pole bending and Redmond's Cassidy Clark took fifth in the first go round of barrel racing. Powell Butte's Molly and Mattie Gaynor, Culver's Kaycee Kasch and Bailey Knirk of Sisters, Connor Talbott of Madras and Parker Buchanan of Powell Butte also competed in the state finals, but did not place in any of the three go-rounds.

The High School National Finals Rodeo will be held July 17-23 in Gillette, Wyoming, while the Silver State International Rodeo will be held June 30-July 7 in Winnemucca, Nevada.
