LA VERNIA -- The La Vernia Lady Bear basketball team continued to show improvement with a hard-fought 57-50 victory Dec. 6 over the visiting Hondo Lady Owls.
After an opening basket by Hondo, the Lady Bears never relinquished the lead the remainder of the contest, and Head Coach Ron Glazener Jr. was very pleased with the play of the Lady Bears.
“We played very well for the most part tonight,” Glazener said. “We still are having too many turnovers and missing too many free throws. Nevertheless, we are also improving in so many other areas.
“We could have hung our heads after the losses we suffered earlier in the season,” he added, “but our staff kept emphasizing that great teams will expose the things we need to improve upon. We now have a little momentum heading into our district schedule, and our team chemistry is great.”
Glazener went on to add that the members of his team are beginning to trust in one another, and that they are sharing a belief that they can continue to improve game by game. He said that he and his staff are “really proud of their efforts.”
The Lady Bears’ season record improved to 5-7 with the win over Hondo.
La Vernia was able to enjoy a short break from competition, but was scheduled to be back on the floor Dec. 13 to take on the Lady Eagles of Pleasanton in Pleasanton.
