Three La Vernia athletes, Dillon, Jeffrey, and Brett Goddard, traveled to Amarillo on Feb. 26, where they participated in the Texas Youth Rookie Wrestling State Tournament. The boys were accompanied by their father/coach, Paul Goddard.
Each young man represented the city of La Vernia well. Brett, 8, took first place and was named state champion in the Division 1, 50lb weight class. Dillon, 10, ended up with a fourth-place finish in the Division 3, 65lb weight class. Jeff, 9, wrestled hard and just missed placing in the top four in the Division 2, 58lb weight class.
Congratulations to these La Vernia youths for a great season.
