Navarro girls down La Vernia, secure second place district finish
(Geronimo) – The Navarro girls basketball team clinched the No. 2 playoff seed in District 27-4A Tuesday night by notching a 72-62 home win over La Vernia in the game of the regular season.

The Panthers only led by three, 33-30, at halftime, but they outscored the Bears 39-32 in the second half to pull away for the 10-point win.

Senior guard Amber Reneau led Navarro offensively with a game-high 23 points. Hailey Teasley chipped in with 16, and Emily Hinkelmann added 10. Anna Longoria finished with seven points, Haleigh Ortiz five, Allie Benner four, Molly Vrana three, and Micayla Hawes two.

Maddy Schroller led La Vernia with 22 points.

Navarro finishes with a 7-3 record in District 27-4A, and takes an overall mark of 26-9 into the UIL playoffs. The Panthers’ bi-district playoff details had yet to be finalized at press time.

Road loss drops Navarro boys into fourth-place tie
(La Vernia) – The Navarro boys basketball team had a chance to move into a third-place tie in District 27-4A with a road win over La Vernia Tuesday night, but the Bears prevailed 63-56 to take a two-game lead over the Panthers in the standings.

The loss drops Navarro (10-15) to 3-5 in district play, and the Panthers now share fourth place with San Antonio-Veterans Memorial. Each team has two games left on the schedule, and they split their head-to-head meetings earlier this season. Should they finish in a fourth-place tie, they would have to play a tiebreak game for the district’s final playoff seed.

Free throw shooting was a major factor in Tuesday’s outcome. Navarro made just eight foul shots in 23 attempts (35 percent), while La Vernia went 17-31 from the line.

Will Eveld led the Panthers with 21 points on 10-18 shooting from the floor, and also contributed eight rebounds.

Mason McCaig delivered an 18-point, 10-rebound double-double, went 8-14 on field goal attempts, and recorded two blocked shots.

Christian Soto also scored in double figures, totaling 10 points. Kimble Harrison and Rosendo Cuevas rounded out the scoring with three points apiece.

Aiden Mulroney and Corey Rackler led La Vernia with 16 apiece, and Nathan Wiatrek added 15.

Navarro visits Wimberley, who is 8-0 in district and has already clinched the 27-4A championship, on Friday at 6:30 p.m. The Panthers conclude the regular season next Tuesday with a home game against Gonzales. Veterans Memorial’s remaining games are against La Vernia on Friday and Eastside Memorial next Tuesday.
