Lady Bears ready for district

Lady Bears ready for district
Kayte Cowsert (4) is focused on the ball during La Vernia’s non-district game with Fredericksburg last week.

They played a total of five games last week, and after all the dust settled, the Lady Bear basketball team was nearly even in the books.

La Vernia started the week with a home game against the Lady Billies of Fredericksburg. The visiting team outscored the Lady Bears during the first two periods of play, and held a 27-18 lead at the break, but La Vernia nearly pulled out a comeback.

The Lady Bears outscored Fredericksburg 19-13 in the third, and pulled to within 3 points. La Vernia went on to outscore the Lady Billies 13-12 in the final stanza, but came up a basket short, and lost by the final score of 52-50.

From there, the Lady Bears went to the Seguin Tournament, where they went 2-2 on the weekend. La Vernia earned a 52-41 win over Burbank, and also defeated Marble Falls 58-51. The Lady Bears dropped games to Boerne and Jay, however, by the final scores of 53-46 and 62-51, respectively.

“I am very pleased with the way things are going, and we are getting better every game,” said Lady Bear Head Coach Mandie West. “We knew going into this season we were going to see more competitive teams, and that the outcome may not always be in our favor. With that being said, we have been ’in’ every game we have played. We have competed until the end.

“I have seen lots of heart from these girls, and I know it will pay off in the long run,” West added. “We have another tough week this week, and I think we are in a great place to start district competition next Tuesday.”

La Vernia was scheduled to travel to Boerne on Dec. 9, and will host New Braunfels Canyon this Friday, Dec. 12. The Lady Bears will face Yoakum on Tuesday, Dec. 16, in their first District 26-4A game of the year.
