Basketball Playoffs


Playoffs start for Bears

After a great regular season, in which it finished as the District 26-4A co-champion, the La Vernia Bear basketball team was set to enter the playoffs this past Tuesday.

The Bears closed out the regular season on Feb. 17 with a 54-28 win over Gonzales. Jonathan Garcia and Zach Jarzombek led the way with 16 points and 15 points, respectively. Noah Wells scored 9 points, Cody Martinez dropped in 5, and Joseph Robles scored 4 points. Bradley Johnson and Justus Parker rounded things out with 3 points and 2 points, respectively.

When it was all said and done, La Vernia had put together a district record of 10-2, and tied Wimberley for the title. The teams went to a coin toss to decide postseason seeding, and the Bears won the flip.

In the first round of the playoffs, the No. 1-seeded Bears were paired with Salado, a No. 4-seeded team playing out of District 25-4A. The Eagles had an overall record of 19-12 going into the game, and were 4-6 in district play.

The teams were scheduled to play Feb. 24, though results were unknown as of press time. The winner of the game between La Vernia and Salado will advance to the area championship against either Wharton or Stafford, while the loser sees its season come to an end.

Lady Bears eliminated in postseason play

Unfortunately for the Lady Bear basketball team, their 2014-15 season came to an end last week, as they fell to Liberty Hill in the bi-district round of the playoffs.

During the first half of play, the Lady Bears did their best to keep pace, but remained several points behind. Liberty Hill scored 16 in the first period, while La Vernia dropped in 10 points. The Lady Bears upped their points production to 12 in the second stanza, but allowed 15 to Liberty Hill, and trailed 31-22 at the break.

Things went from bad to worse in the second half, as Liberty Hill outscored La Vernia 42-17, en route to a 73-39 win in regulation.

Brooke Martinez nearly had another double-double, and scored 12 points for the Lady Bears, while pulling down nine rebounds. Autumn Light scored 8 points, and Ciara Jenschke was good for another 7. Jordan Luensmann and Kayte Cowsert each scored 6 points. Cowsert and Peyton Ford each had two assists, and Jenschke and Luensmann had one apiece.

Cowsert led the team in rebounds with 10. Light pulled down five boards, Jenschke snagged three, and Lynsey Terrill came up with two. Luensmann and Elise Arredondo each had a rebound, as well.

Light led the team in steals with three, followed by Luensmann with two. Terrill, Jenschke, Martinez, and Sara Wiatrek each had one steal.

The Lady Bears end their season with an overall record of 15-17, after making a 7-5 run through district to finish in third place.
