Lady Bears still the team to beat in 28-3A

LA VERNIA Now about one third of the way through their district schedule, the Lady Bears are proving that they are definitely the volleyball team to beat in District 28-3A. The Lady Bears have been ranked among the state’s best throughout the season, and they have shown no signs of slowing down.

After beginning the district portion of their schedule with a straight-sets win over Somerset, the Lady Bears traveled to Pleasanton last Tuesday for a meeting with the Lady Eagles. The games were fairly tight, but La Vernia picked up the win in three straight games. Seniors Valarie Moehrig and Brittani Dear once again led the team in kills, with junior outside hitter Brooke Haliscak close behind.

The Lady Bears then hosted Poteet last Friday, and picked up a 3-1 win over the Agates. La Vernia blew out Poteet in the first set by the score of 25-6, but then gave up the second set to the Agates 25-23. Head Coach Theresa Reyes refocused her team, and the Lady Bears stormed back to a 25-8 win in the third. With one game left to play, La Vernia maintained the pressure, and picked up a 25-12 win, giving the Lady Bears the victory.

Dear paced the attack with 16 kills on the night, followed by Moehrig and Haliscak with 13 apiece. Sara Hill and Karline Campbell also got in on the scoring.

La Vernia was scheduled to face Hawkins Oct. 2, and the Wolfpack was 0-3 in district play heading into that match. The Lady Bears will then wrap up their first round of district matches this Friday, Oct. 5, at Sam Houston.

La Vernia def. Pleasanton, 25-21, 27-25, 25-18.
