Unblemished: Patriots finish district perfect for fourth consecutive season

The 2018 season has already been full of honors, accolades and milestones for the Mission Veterans Patriots. On Tuesday night in Mission, they had one final task to put a bow on the regular season — perfection.

With a 25-6, 25-4, 25-14 sweep of Roma, Vets completed its fourth straight undefeated district season. That’s four straight clean district campaigns for Makenzie Gerlach and Jackie Howell, who have played on varsity all four years of high school.

“It doesn’t really set in until it actually happened,” Howell said. “Now that it’s our last district game and you realized ‘Wow, we didn’t know what it was like to lose a district game.’ People have gotten close before, but to go undefeated all the way through it’s an honor.”
