LA VERNIA -- All four La Vernia High School teams won titles at the District 28-3A cross-country championships held Oct. 27 in Starcke Park in Seguin. The Bears dominated the field, winning three of four individual titles as well. The varsity girls swept gold, silver, and bronze medals.

Madison Trees led the Lady Bears with her first-place finish in a time of 11:53. Olivia Hinojosa won silver in 12 minutes flat, and Bailey Vrana was third with her time of 12:17. The leaders were followed closely by Lady Bear teammates Shaley Trammell, who finished fifth with a time of 12:45); Brianna Kruciak, who was sixth in 13:08; and Isabelle Reynosa, who finished 10th with a time of 13:25.

The varsity boys had a sweep of their own, taking the first four places. Roberto Guzman won gold with his time of 17:08, Nick Padgett was second in 17:20, Dillon Goan grabbed the bronze medal with his time of 17:25, and Colby Huth finished fourth with a time of 17:48. Erik Tuttle was eighth overall in a time of 18:16, and Drake Bruner rounded out the team with his 11th-place finish in a time of 18:51.

The junior varsity teams were equally impressive. La Vernia’s girls dominated the field, finishing first through sixth. Leading the way was Shayler Ring with her time of 13:12, followed by Jessica Perry at 13:43, Allison Freeman at 13:48, Kasandra Arteaga at 13:51, Carly Barnes at 14:05, and Sabrina Wolf in a time of 14:10. Jordan Albert was also a top-10 medalist, finishing eighth with a time of 14:16. Also racing for the team were Annie Lowak (11th, 14:34), Erin Tuttle (12th, 14:44), Brittany Thompson (14th, 14:53), Chelsie Smith (15th, 14:54), Vicki Tefteller (16th, 14:58), Rose Herrera (19th, 15:04), Valerie Petry (22nd, 15:18), Katie Cribb (23rd, 15:37), Alex Heckard (30th, 16:05), J.P.

Jarrett Thompson was fifth in 19:23, Zach Lansford was sixth in 19:28, and Ben Stevenson made the top 10 with his seventh-place finish at 19:47. Shane Eiring was 11th in a time of 20:50, Cody Hertz finished 13th in a time of 21:08, and Keith Parsons was 20th in a time of 22:39.

“It’s very satisfying to see our kids’ hard work pay off,” said Head Coach Richard Hinojosa. “We’re excited about representing La Vernia at the Regional Championships. Our region has always produced some great cross-country teams, and this year is no exception.”

La Vernia competes in Region IV, and there are a number of state-ranked boys teams. Liberty Hill is currently ranked No. 1, Zapata is No. 5, La Vernia falls in at No. 7, Fredericksburg is No. 10, and Lytle grabs the No. 12 position. On the girls’ side, La Vernia stands as the state’s No. 4-ranked team, and Liberty Hill is close behind at No. 5.

A total of 24 teams from Region IV squared Nov. 5 at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio.
