The La Vernia Lady Bears had been caught off guard when they traveled to Navarro Oct. 7, dropping to the Lady Panthers in a close 3-2 match. This would prove to be their only loss in district play, however, after winning their Oct. 25 home rematch against Navarro in three sets, 25-20, 25-19, and 25-8, tying the two teams for first place in the district with a record of 8-1.
Chloe Patton led the Lady Bears Oct. 25 with 15 kills, followed by Hayli Verrips with nine, and Kennedy Adams with five. Adams led with three aces for the night, with two more being contributed by Kady Sczech. Adams also led in blocks with four, alongside Verrips’ two. Christa Reyes had 19 digs for the night, followed by 15 from Kayla Homeyer and 12 from Sczech. This win put them at No. 6 in the state in 4A in the Oct. 31 Texas Girls Coaches Association State Volleyball Poll.
The Lady Bears also won their Oct. 28 warm-up game with Giddings in three sets, 25-17, 25-12, and 25-18.
The Lady Bears won the flip for top seed with their Navarro co-champions, taking on Boerne for their Nov. 1 Bi-District playoff match at the Blossom Athletic Center in San Antonio.
