La Vernia runners wrap up season at state
The La Vernia Lady Bear cross-country team celebrates a strong finish at the state meet last Saturday in Round Rock. As a team, the Lady Bears finished sixth overall.
ROUND ROCK -- The La Vernia cross-country girls finished up their season with a sixth-place team finish at the UIL State Cross Country Championships this past weekend. The Lady Bears, making their third straight trip, competed well against a strong field, while the Bear individual qualifiers had a great day as well.
“We gave it our best,” said Head Coach Richard Hinojosa. “This group of kids set their sights high from the get-go. That’s definitely one of the reasons they got to state in the first place.”
In the girls varsity division, senior Bailee Vrana led the way for La Vernia with her 14th-place finish in a time of 12:10.55. Olivia Hinojosa was 18th at 12:13.14, and Dakota Guerrero finished 30th with a time of 12:23.30. Jessica Perry was 57th in a time of 12:46.76, Shaley Trammell finished 70th in a time of 12:57.33, Mayra Alvarado was 73rd in 13:00.29, and Elizabeth Moczygemba rounded out the team at 101st in a time of 14:11.86.
Dillon Goan finished 11th in the varsity boys race with a time of 16:47.76, and teammate Andrew Cribb was 26th with a time of 17:08.34. Goan and Cribb had qualified based on their individual performances at the region meet.
“I’m extremely proud of our ladies and gentlemen,” Hinojosa added. “They represented our community wonderfully.”
