Ramya Stevens, of Los Alamos, will be competing in the 11th season of “American Ninja Warrior,” a show in which contestants attempt obstacle courses of increasing difficulty.

She will travel to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, for a regional competition Friday. Top finishers will then move on to nationals in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

The season will be broadcast on TV this summer.

Stevens, a 2018 LAHS graduate, was a gymnast for 14 years. She started at Los Alamos School of Gymnastics at age 3, and finished her career at Zia Gymnastics in Santa Fe.

Stevens has been training at the Los Alamos Family Y and at the Ninja Force Obstacle Gym in Albuquerque. Her career goal is to be a pastry chef, which led to the nickname of “Pastry Ninja” for the competition. She combined these two interests by selling homemade French bread as a fundraiser for expenses in Oklahoma City.
