Local team ropers Ty Haney of Rector, and Ethan Murray of Piggott, were in Rock Springs, Wyo., last week, competing in the National High School Finals Rodeo. The local students, who will both be juniors this fall, earned the trip to the NHSFR by way of a good showing at the Kentucky State National High School Rodeo in June, taking third in the team roping.

But, lady luck was not on the side of the local ropers during the prestigious event, and they failed to advance to Saturday's finals.

Murray is a student a Piggott High School, and Haney a student at Rector High.

Both offered their thanks to their family, supporters and sponsors for making the trip possible.
