The Cuero Record
 
Starke Park in Seguin was the site of the 2015 district meet for Cuero High School and district 26. Senior Jocee Bennett of Cuero placed third in the two mile race and will advance to the regional meet Oct. 26 in Corpus Christi.
 
Cuero cross country coach, Roberto Granados, was pleased with the all-around effort of his team at the district meet.
 
“This year our team was very young and inexperienced, but the runners ran great,” Granados said. “The varsity girls placed fifth with Jocee Bennett qualifying for regionals. It was a great season, and we can’t wait to see how Jocee performs at regionals. Job well done Gobblers.”
 
Bennett finished with a time of 12 minutes and 38 seconds. After the race, Bennett talked about what she enjoys most about cross country and what she felt like she improved most on during the season.

Sinton football preview

Elex Martinez and the Cuero Gobblers will look for an important district victory on Friday night, when they head to Sinton to take on the undefeated pirates. Last season, Cuero lost 41-26 to the Pirates despite a heroic 270 yard rushing performance from D’Anthony Hopkins.
 
Hopkins’ younger brother, Zech, has carried the bulk of the goal-line work for the Gobblers this season, but it may come down to how he and Tyler Edwards play on the defensive side of the ball.

“Don’t let up!”
 
Those were the words of coach Whitney Coles during the decisive fifth set against district foe Wimberley Tuesday, Oct. 13.
 
The Lady Gobblers trailed two sets to one and were down in the fourth set before coming back and earning a critical district victory (20-25, 25-16, 22-25, 25-16, 15-9).
 
Trailing 11-7 in the fourth set, coach Coles called a timeout. Cuero had already battled in three tough sets to start the match and had only won one. Something hit home in that game-changing timeout, as the Lady Gobblers went on an 8-2 run and 18-5 run to close out the set.
 
After the match, coach Coles talked about how this was their first five-set match of this season, but they were 5-0 last season in matches that went five sets.

Wildcats pounce Lions 52-0

The Yorktown Wildcats were loose, fluid and well coached resulting in a pounce of the Kenedy Lions last Friday night at Lion’s Stadium 52-0.

Kenedy started with ball in the opening of the first quarter and had control four minutes into the game. It was a long first half for the Lions as the Wildcat defense limited their offense to 88-yards rushing and forced them to punt three times.

Yorktown Jamel Wade had 3 possessions for 120 yards and 3 touchdowns. His first possession of the ball, on the Wildcat’s first play, was a 27-yard touchdown. In simular fashion, the Wildcats, on their own 15-yard line, handed the ball to Wade once again. Wade threw off, dodged or spun five tacklers for an 85-yard touchdown. His third carry occurred during the second quarter where he ran up the middle for an 8-yard TD.
