LA VERNIA -- The La Vernia High School tennis program has been steadily evolving over the years. The school recently built new tennis facilities for the program, and a new milestone was reached when the Bears and Lady Bears officially hosted their first-ever tennis tournament March 3. Teams came in from Yoakum, Pleasanton, and Seguin, and La Vernia Head Coach Angie Hargreaves called it a “great success.”

Both the varsity and junior varsity programs were in action during the tournament, and both teams found success.

In junior varsity play, Blanca Alvarado led the Lady Bears with her first-place finish in girls singles competition. Teammates Cheyenne Bentley and Brooke Gatley played well in girls doubles, and the duo finished the tournament with a first-place finish in consolation. Also finishing first in consolation was the mixed doubles team of Joey Rincon and Annabell Bonavente.

On the varsity side of things, Adam Poore and Nick Guitron continued their domination over opponents this spring in boys doubles play, and went on to finish first in their own tournament. Sarah Ellis has also stayed at the top of her game, and she celebrated a first-place finish in girls singles play.

In girls doubles action, Ali Beck and Julie Barnes reached the finals, but came up a little short to finish second. Paula Watson and Destiny Roath fell into the consolation bracket in girls doubles, but won from there to capture the consolation championship.

The varsity and junior varsity teams enjoyed the success they found at their own tournament, but were soon forced to shift their focus, as both teams were slated to compete at Judson, Steele, and Clemens.
