Madison Cavness and Colee Charlesworth are off to Rock Springs, Wyoming this week, along with family, friends and horses for the National Finals of high school rodeo. The local girls each qualified for the July 14-20 event with top-four finishes in the Texas Finals last month.

Cavness and her horse will put on two-and-a-half minute performances in the cutting event starting Tuesday morning. Charlesworth competes in the reined cow horse division that begins with qualifying runs on Sunday. Last year, Charlesworth was among the 20 finalists, and finished 14th in the nation.
