Lady Bears rally to defeat Wimberley, fall to Sinton

LA VERNIA -- “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times ... it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”

Charles Dickens scripted those words in his classic A Tale of Two Cities. And while his story was set in Europe during the French Revolution, his words so eloquently describe the La Vernia Lady Bears’ journey to the Region IV volleyball tournament last week. Just three days removed from reveling in the glory of victory over their perpetual nemesis, the Lady Bears experienced the agony of being tossed from the playoffs with a regional semifinal loss.

The Lady Bears started play last week in a regional quarterfinal match with Wimberley. The Lady Texans had bounced La Vernia from postseason play more times than the Lady Bears would care to remember, but it didn’t happen this year. La Vernia went all five games with Wimberley, but emerged as the victor by the score of 25-15, 21-25, 19-25, 25-12, 15-10.

“It was the best of times.”

With the win came a feeling of jubilation. Was the monkey finally off the collective backs of La Vernia? It certainly felt that way, and the pollsters believed it, too, as the Lady Bears shot up to third in the state rankings. It was looking like this was going to be the year the team finally traveled to Strahan Coliseum to play for a state title.

The Lady Bears traveled to San Antonio Nov. 11 to face Sinton in the regional semifinal, but that is when the proverbial “wheels fell off.” The Lady Bears were stunned by Sinton, and fell by the score of 13-25, 25-12, 22-25, 25-17, 9-15.

“It was the worst of times.”

As would be expected, the loss proved devastating. Players, coaches, and fans all felt the defeat, and relief will take time.

“It just wasn’t meant to be,” said one Lady Bear fan who followed the team closely this season. “The girls came out flat and just didn’t look like they were focused.”

It will certainly take time for the players to look past the loss, but when they do, they should embrace the success they enjoyed this season. The Lady Bears racked up 43 impressive wins, and fell just seven times throughout the year. The team won the District 28-3A championship, captured the area championship, and advanced to the regional semifinals, putting the Lady Bears among the top 16 teams in the state.
