Tickets for Miss Rodeo Nebraska coronation sold out

Tickets to the Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2014 Coronation are gone.

The event - to be held Jan. 4 at the Hampton Inn in Scottsbluff - is a sellout.

Gina Jespersen was named 2014 rodeo queen during the Nebraskaland Days celebration in North Platte in June. She has been the "Lady in Waiting" since that time, preparing for her 2014 reign, which included a trip to the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas to watch the Miss Rodeo America pageant. She also cheered on 1998 Alliance High School graduate Dean Gorsuch, who finished seventh in steer wrestling.

Jespersen says she's thrilled with the opportunities that await her in 2014.

espersen, the daughter of Don and Joni Jespersen, is a 2008 graduate of Hemingford High School and recently earned her degree in elementary education from Black Hills State University.
