It can certainly be said that La Vernia’s athletic trainer, Leah D. Nickell, is an all-around athlete. When not involved with junior high and high school athletics, Nickell and her husband participate in area team jackpot roping events.

During the first night of the finals of the Guadalupe County team roping held Oct. 10 during the Guadalupe County Fair in Seguin, heeler Nickell and header Robert Wood finished with a time of 8.3 in the No. 11 roping. This set the pace for the finals, with the duo finishing the night in first place.

Nickell explained they were among 12 teams that qualified in August, with the final jackpot competition held during the fair.

When the dust settled, Ronnie Davis and Dusty Jahns’ time of 6.3 took the top prize. Morris Vader and Ronnie Lopez placed second with a time of 7.8 seconds. These runs pushed Nickell and Wood’s time to a third-place finish.

Nickell and her husband, Brian, hope to compete in the World Series of Team Roping in the future.
