LA VERNIA -- While several of the area’s baseball teams have struggled early this season, the La Vernia Bears have been on fire.

The Bears started the season with a 9-game winning streak, while locking up the Navarro and Floresville tournament championships in the process. The team is currently sitting at 12-1 on the year, and should be in great shape when the district season begins next Tuesday, March 19.

In Geronimo, at the Navarro Tournament, the Bears opened their season up with a 13-7 win over the host team. The boys in blue then knocked off Pearsall and Cedar Creek to take home the hardware. From there, the Bears played their first home game of the season against Natalia, and easily secured a 10-0 victory.

La Vernia went over to Floresville for the Tigers’ annual baseball tournament Feb. 28-March 1, and again took home the prize. The Bears knocked off Edison twice, Lytle, Southside, and Holmes, and held a 9-0 record by sundown on March 2.

The Bears traveled to Cuero on March 5, but the Gobblers weren’t very hospitable, and handed La Vernia its first loss of the season. At the end of seven, it was Cuero for the win, 13-7.

On March 7, the Bears traveled to Bulldog Country to compete in the Somerset Tournament. La Vernia started out with Southside, a team they had played in Floresville, and the result was pretty much the same. La Vernia jumped out to a 4-run lead in the second, and then tacked on 6 more in the fourth en route to a 10-0 victory.

Fellow district team Poteet was next up for La Vernia, but the Bears put down the Aggies just as quickly, locking up an 11-0 win in four innings. Austin Preiss picked up the win on the mound, and fanned five batters in the process. Justus Parker led the team at the plate as he tallied two hits, two runs, an RBI, and a stolen base within the shortened outing.

Devine was the last team to face La Vernia, and things were a bit closer, but the Bears still secured the win. La Vernia struck first with 2 runs in the first inning, and Devine came back to tie things in the second. Four runs in the third, and 1 run in each of the fourth and fifth innings secured the win at 8-0. Dylan Tuten was credited with the win off the mound.

La Vernia will continue its non-district schedule this week, but will begin its run toward a district title next Tuesday, March 19, as the Bears host Hawkins in La Vernia.
