Former Gobbler named AD, head football coach for Big Spring Steers

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Former Cuero Gobbler quarterback Clint Finley was named the head football coach and athletic director for the Big Spring Steers on Tuesday, Jan. 26, per a report by the Midland Reporter-Telegram. Clint was approved by the Big Spring ISD board of trustees in a special meeting that afternoon.
 
Clint’s predecessor, Phillip Ritchey, announced his retirement in December 2015 following eight seasons with the school.
 
Clint is no stranger to Big Spring, as his father and former Cuero head football coach, Mickey Finley, was the defensive coordinator at the school from 1986-1987. Mickey coached Cuero to two state finals appearances in the 1990s (1993 and 1998) with Clint leading the Gobbler offense during the 1993 season.

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

The McMullen County Cowgirls basketball team took an early lead and never let go defeating the Nordheim Lady Pirates 26-58.

The Lady Pirates had difficulty passing with the Cowgirl’s full court man-to-man press and boxed out nearly everytime at the basket.

Nordheim showed good presence defensively. Emily Jennings and Jade Williams played good pressure defense as well as Haley Wilson with several steals in the game.

There was not a player on the Cowgirls that could not shoot and the team understood the term boxing out on both offense and defense.

Yorktown Kitty Kats open district with lost to Three Rivers Lady Bulldogs

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

The Yorktown Kitty Kats lost their opening district game against the Three Rivers Lady Bulldogs this past Friday night at home court, 19-49.

The Lady Bulldogs were bigger, more aggressive and experienced.

Three Rivers scored 12 points each in the first three periods and 13 points in the fourth. Yorktown started with 6-points followed with 8-points before the half. The second half was 2-points in the third and 3-points in the fourth.

It was a rough second half for the Kats. During the third period the Lady Bulldogs turned up the heat on defense. Several Yorktown players were nowhere near the size of their opponents or the experience as freshman and took their beating. In their frustration it showed with half a dozen poor thows in play for Three Rivers to pick off and score.
