Lady Bears take down Yoakum and Gonzales

Lady Bears take down Yoakum and Gonzales
LVHS 2015 Volleyball The Lady Bears celebrate a point during their straight-games win over Gonzales in district play.

With the district season winding to a close, the Lady Bear volleyball team knows that every match is critical. La Vernia had that in mind last week, as the team downed Yoakum and Gonzales to improve to 5-3 in District 26-4A play.

The Lady Bears traveled to Yoakum on Oct. 6, and the team returned home with a win in four games. The first game of the match proved to be the toughest, and Yoakum held on for a 26-24 win over the Lady Bears. La Vernia rallied in the second game, though, and easily tied things up with a 25-11 victory. The Lady Bears went on to win the third game by the score of 25-16 to take a 2-1 lead, and then closed things out with a 25-21 victory in the fourth game.

Last Friday, the team was at home against Gonzales, and the Lady Bears made quick work of the Lady Apaches.

Led by the hitting of Mackinley Zimmerle and Hayli Verrips, La Vernia breezed past the visiting team 25-9 in the first game, and 25-7 in the second. Gonzales put up a better fight in the third game, but the Lady Bears remained in control of the match throughout, and ended things with a 25-17 win in the third game.

Zimmerle and Verrips each tallied 7 kills in the match, and Kennedy Adams was close behind with 5. Morgan Burns had 16 assists and Audrey Mayes added another 12. Madison Saulter led the team in service aces with 4, while Mayes and Kayla Homeyer each tacked on another 2. Christa Reyes and Sara Wiatrek each had 6 digs, and Adams and Madyson Gregory led the team in blocks with 4.5 and 3.5, respectively.

The Lady Bears were scheduled to play at Navarro on Oct. 13, and will be back at home this Friday, Oct. 16, to face Cuero. The team will host Wimberley on Tuesday, Oct. 20, and will close out the district season at home on Tuesday, Oct. 27, against Canyon Lake.
