Tierney claims inaugural Badlands steer roping title

It figured that the one member of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in the field would claim the inaugural Badlands Circuit Steer Roping Finals in Deadwood, SD – even if he is 58 years old. Paul Tierney of Oral, SD, won round two on his way to a five-head average time of 82.9 seconds on Sept. 4, edging Ora Taton of Rapid City, SD, by less than a second. They were the only competitors to complete qualified runs in every round. Jay Pixley of Sundance, WY, won three rounds and had the rodeo-best run of 11.0 seconds to finish third in the average and assure his first-place finish in the year-end standings. Tierney’s son, Jess, was fourth. Pixley and Paul Tierney have both qualified for the National Circuit Finals Steer Roping next spring in Torrington, WY, the first men to make the field.

The Badlands Circuit Steer Roping Finals were scheduled to coincide with the historic Miles City (MT) to Deadwood (SD) Trail Ride. Competitors, trail riders and committee members all shared a chuck wagon feast on Saturday afternoon.
