LA VERNIA -- The Lady Bears’ district track and field championship streak remains intact after holding off a strong and experienced Sam Houston squad. This made 13 consecutive years that La Vernia has won the district title.

“Our kids simply gave everything thing they had,” said Head Coach Richard Hinojosa. “It was as perfect an example of a truly selfless team effort as I’ve ever seen. We preach ‘TEAM, TEAM, TEAM’ and that’s exactly what they were competing for. This was as gratifying a victory as any we’ve ever had. I’m so proud of both our varsity and JV kids.”

After graduating an exceptional class of seniors last year, this year’s squad merely stepped up and did a great job of continuing the tradition of excellence. The Lady Bears finished as team runner-up at their first two meets of the season (Medina Valley, Floresville), then went on a winning streak that extended through district (La Vernia, Alamo Heights, Navarro, District 28-3A).

“We had a good combination of leadership and youth,” Hinojosa said. “I hate seeing our seniors go. They will definitely be missed, but we’re excited about the kids we have returning next year.”

The top two varsity finishers in each event now advance to the Regional Championship at Texas A&M-Kingsville on Friday and Saturday, April 26-27.

Once again, Region IV has produced some outstanding performances. Returning state champions from Region IV include Brookshire Royal’s Diana Moreno (3,200 and 1,600 meters), Cuero’s Abigail Shepard (300-meter hurdles), and West Oso’s Akeyla Mitchell (200-meter dash). In addition, there are several returning state silver medalists, including Sam Houston’s Toshonna Williams (400-meter dash), West Oso’s Akeyla Mitchell (100-meter dash), and Lyford’s Danielle Hass (800-meter run).

“We’re going to go and do what we’ve done all year, give it our best effort,” Hinojosa added. “That’s what they’ve always done.”
