SAN ANTONIO -- The La Vernia Lady Bear cross-country team will be making its third consecutive trip to the UIL State Cross Country Championships, and sixth overall appearance, while the Bears’ team narrowly missed advancing. The Lady Bears finished second in the team standings, while the Bears finished in a tie for third, but lost the tiebreaker. The top three teams and top 10 individuals advance.

Senior Bailee Vrana will make her fourth appearance at state, while fellow seniors Dillon Goan, Shaley Trammell, and Jessica Perry, and junior Olivia Hinojosa make their third appearance. For sophomores Dakota Guerrero and Elizabeth Moczygemba, this year’s trip marks the second time they will run at state, and juniors Andrew Cribb and Mayra Alvarado will make their first state appearance.

Hinojosa now ties Aimee Jonas, a 2007 graduate, for the school record for state championship appearances at five. Both have three state showings in cross country, and two in spring track. La Vernia High School had the most individual qualifiers of any Class 3A teams with two girls and two boys qualifying on their own.

“Each one of our athletes had outstanding performances,” said Head Coach Richard Hinojosa. “Every single one of them knocked off a tremendous amount of time from the last race on the same course six weeks ago. We are peaking at the right time.”

The boys actually tied with Progreso for the final qualifying spot, but were edged by virtue of the tie-breaker.

“The kids have put in a lot of hard work, commitment, and sacrifice. I’m extremely proud of them,” Hinojosa said. “There will be no slouches at state. Every athlete there is out to win, but I know our kids will do great. We never take qualifying to state for granted, and we are humbled to be going back.”

The state championships will be held in Round Rock at Old Settlers Park this Saturday, Nov. 9. The girls’ race starts at 10:40 a.m., and the boys start at 11:10 a.m.

Girls finishing order: Bailee Vrana-4th, 11:46.4; Olivia Hinojosa-6th, 11:46.5; Dakota Guerrero-12th, 12:03.3; Shaley Trammell-35th, 12:39.6; Mayra Alvarado-59th, 12:59.4; Jessica Perry-60th, 13:00.00; Elizabeth Moczygemba-117th, 13:47.4.

Boys finishing order: Dillon Goan-3rd, 15:55.4; Andrew Cribb-7th, 15:58.1; Gage Brandt-29th, 16:44.6; Tate Gregory-49th, 17:06.4; Zach Lansford-76th, 17:35.8; Bobby Gonzalez-81st, 17:41.2; Brett Cheverton-112th, 18:18.0.
