Kernick wins trailer at Ultimate Calf Roping tourney

August 14, 2013

Trevor Kernick, a Coahoma eighth grader, is pictured with his saddle and trailer — both prizes claimed by finishing in first place at the Ultimate Calf Roping Tournament in Glen Rose, Texas over the weekend.

GLEN ROSE, Texas — Following in his father's footsteps, Trevor Kernick — son of Rhonda and Howard College Rodeo Coach Greg Kernick — is making his presence known on the junior rodeo circuit.

Most recently, Kernick competed in the Ultimate Calf Roping finals in Glen Rose, where he showcased his roping skills, first by winning a single-elimination tournament. Kernick, who is heading into the eighth grade at Coahoma I.S.D., claimed a Circle Y trophy saddle and advanced to the Tournament of Champions.

Out to prove he was the best of the best, Kernick placed first in the big one. He also won a big prize for his hard work — the Ultimate Calf Roping championship trailer.

Kernick handled the roping, but he cites the support from his family as well as his sponsors for helping him along the way, including BEX Sunglasses, Tractor Supply of Big Spring, Big Dog Rig Movers, Sharp Image Energy, Erath Iron and Metal and B&W Hitches.

Next up for the young buckaroo will be an appearance at a Texas Junior High Rodeo Association event in September. He also plans to play football and basketball.

“Trevor is quick to thank his family and sponsors that have helped him pursue his goal,” Greg Kernick said. “He's been roping since he was old enough to carry one and he's been entered in different events since he was about eight.”
