COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Four Pine Belt area teens made Mississippi proud this past weekend at the National Junior High Rodeo Finals in New Mexico.

Competing against more than 1500 riders Kash Miller from Mize and Chase Graves from Poplarville took top honors at the rodeo. Blaise Holder from Collins and Stran Smith from Monticello also did well placing in 20th place.

Both Miller and Graves are well accomplished in team roping. Between them they have recently won around $20,000, a dodge pick-up, a scholarship, saddles, and several other prizes.

Miller also competed at the state finals recently where he was named all round cowboy of the year.
