La Vernia golfers advance after strong district showing
Kassidee Thomas, Shawnee Allen, and Kimberlyn Crisp represent La Vernia well at the district golf tournament. All three ladies finished in the top 10, and Allen and Crisp will advance to the regional tournament to be held in Corpus Christi.
PLEASANTON -- After finishing second in the team standings at the District 28-3A golf tournament held March 24-25 in Pleasanton, the La Vernia Bears are now preparing for the regional tournament. In addition, a pair of Lady Bear golfers will also be making the trip.
In the boys competition, Rusty Story led La Vernia after shooting a 74 and 83 for a two-day total of 157. His score was third-best overall. John Hill was close behind with a total of 163. He was fourth in the individual standings.
Landon Richter shot a 174 and finished sixth overall, but was not listed as part of the Bears’ five-man team. He did qualify for the regional tournament as an individual, however. Ricky Utt finished seventh with a two-day total of 175, Hayden Chall shot a 178 to finish 10th, and Luke Moczygemba rounded out the team with a two-day total of 182 and an overall finish of 13th. The Bears finished second behind Pleasanton, and fared well among a field of nearly 40 golfers.
On the girls’ side of things, La Vernia didn’t have enough players to fill out a five-person team, but still sent a trio of Lady Bears to the competition.
Freshman Shawnee Allen led the way for La Vernia and finished first overall to claim the district championship. Allen shot a 77 and 73 for a two-day total of 150 -- 33 strokes ahead of the second-place finisher. Kimberlyn Crisp shot a 99 and 109 for a total of 208. Her score was good enough to grab sixth place. Kassidee Thomas also represented La Vernia and earned an eighth-place finish with a score of 227.
Allen and Crisp will both advance to the regional tournament.
The Class 3A Region IV tournament will be held Monday and Tuesday, April 14-15, in Corpus Christi. The boys will play the Gabe Lozano Sr. Course, while the girls will play Oso Beach Course.
