Rodeo has Southern Arizona flair in more ways than one

The entry list for this month’s La Fiesta de los Vaqueros, the Tucson Rodeo, includes 637 cowboys and cowgirls, including more than 50 National Finals Rodeo competitors.

It also includes 18 from Southern Arizona, including four-time world champion barrel racer Sherry Cervi of Marana. Of note, Marana’s Tim Robertson, a steer wrestler, and his wife, Kelly Robertson, a barrel racer, will be joined by their son, Trey Robertson, who will compete in steer wrestling.
