FIRTH â€” Firth High School graduate Layton Wasia has had quite the year.
He won the state wrestling championship in February after going undefeated, he then followed that up with a solid rodeo season leading District 4 as the all-around cowboy.
His success on the back of bulls during the spring earned Wasia a spot at the National High School Finals Rodeo that begins Sunday in Rock Springs, Wyo.
Wasia will compete in the bull riding event this week and is one of three Bingham County cowboys who will be making the short drive east to Rock Springs.

Before heading to Jackson Hole on Thursday, the Broncos hosted a doubleheader with Madison on Tuesday and the visiting Cats walked away with a pair of wins 19-12 and 8-2 at Blackfoot High School.
