LA VERNIA -- Velma Ramirez of La Vernia undeniably has made a name for herself on the rodeo circuit. She travels across the country pursuing her dream of winning another shiny buckle or saddle.

On Dec. 31, Velma traveled to Glen Rose to compete in the Brother-N-Laws Production “New Year’s Extravaganza” roping event. There were 1,945 teams competing from Oklahoma, New Mexico, Mississippi, and Texas.

Velma served as the heeler and her partner, Brendan Hopkins, the header. The duo won second place in the team roping with an average time of 26.01 seconds. Velma received $2,500 and a trophy saddle.

“It feels really good,” Velma said. “I’m glad I drew a good partner and everything worked out.”

She also won an extra $500 for having the fastest individual time in the event, finishing the run in 6.14 seconds.

“This was one of her biggest wins,” said Velma’s father, Ariel Ramirez. “It was a two-day event and there were a lot of teams. She really stood out.”

Velma, a 2010 La Vernia High School graduate, is a freshman at Southwest Texas Junior College in Uvalde. Velma attends college on a full rodeo scholarship and participates in intercollegiate rodeo. She is undecided on a major, but is considering a career in physical therapy.

She plans to return to Glen Rose this month to participate in another rodeo competition.
