LA VERNIA -- Although it doesn’t normally compete during the fall season, La Vernia High School recently sent golfers to the Smithson Valley and Brandeis tournaments, and the results were outstanding, as several players finished at or near the top of the leaderboard.

La Vernia Head Coach Kyle Andrews explained that he doesn’t normally take his team to fall tournaments because UIL restricts his athletes to just seven tournaments a year. In addition, Andrews also coaches football, and has several players who also participate in fall sports, so it has just worked out to save the tournaments for the spring. Despite that, the Bear golf team and a pair of Lady Bear golfers have already hit the courses this season, and the awards are starting to add up.

While the Lady Bears don’t currently have enough players to form a five-person team, freshman Shawnee Allen and sophomore K.J. Crisp made a couple of trips north to compete in the Smithson Valley and Brandeis tournaments as individuals.

The girls both played well at the Smithson Valley Fall Invitational, and Allen, who has been golfing since she was 3 years old, grabbed the tournament’s top prize as she shot a 72 to finish atop the leaderboard. Crisp shot in the middle of the pack, according to Andrews, a good showing for both among a field of 80-plus golfers. From there, the girls went on to compete in the Brandeis tournament, where Allen had another great outing. Allen shot a 74 on the day, and went home with a second-place finish.

Allen, Crisp, and Andrews are hopeful that by the time the spring season rolls around, they will have enough Lady Bears on the course to fill out a five-person team. With Allen anchoring the team, it could be a good year for La Vernia golf.

On the boys side, the Bears, the state’s No. 7-ranked team, also participated in the Brandeis tournament. La Vernia did well, finishing in a tie for first place with Fredericksburg out of a field of 17 teams. Unfortunately, the Bears lost the tie-breaker to finish second, but it was a good tournament, nonetheless.

Rusty Story led the Bears as he finished second overall with a score of 76. John Hill also shot a 76, but finished fifth by virtue of the scorecard playoff. Ricky Utt shot an 82, Hayden Chall shot an 87, and Luke Moczygemba shot a 95 on the day.
