Public invited to help send Olson off to national rodeo

Annika Olson

People are invited to come show support and give a send off to Annika Olson of Red Bud as she heads to the National High School Finals Rodeo (NHSFR) next week.

She advanced to nationals following her recent performance at the Illinois High School Rodeo State Finals, where she took first place in the barrels, second in poles, seventh in goat-tying, and was the reserve champion all around. She is currently ranked as the number 6 cowgirl in the State of Illinois.
