La Vernia Independent School District (ISD) is looking forward to an exciting 2016-17 Athletic Season.
Leading the Bears and Lady Bears will be new Athletic Director Richard Hinojosa and Scott Grubb, who will wear dual hats as assistant athletic director and head football coach. They’re both familiar faces to La Vernia athletes and sports fans.
Hinojosa served previously as the girls athletic director.
Superintendent Josť Moreno had named Grubb as interim head football coach in May, when Boys Athletic Director Brandon Layne left La Vernia for Ferris ISD near Dallas after only a year in Wilson County. Grubb is the former assistant basketball coach.
“We would like to wish the best of luck to all of our La Vernia Bear and Lady Bear Athletic Teams along with all of our new and returning coaches for the upcoming school year,” said District Public Relations Coordinator Kari Ring. “We would also like to take this time to thank the community of La Vernia for their continued support for our school district as well as our athletic department. Please join us in supporting our local athletes in all of their continued efforts to bring pride, leadership, character, and effort not only to our district, but also to our beloved community.
“Go Bears Go!”
