    Savanna Seng watched the National High School Rodeo Association finals on her computer last year. One thought kept running through her mind as she saw competitor after competitor.

    Seng won’t have that thought this year and she won’t be watching from her computer. Seng, 17, will make her first appearance in the NHSRA finals, which take place Sunday-July 22 in Rock Springs, Wyo.
