Football March madness

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

March Madness is nearing its end for 2016 with the Final Four in Houston this weekend. Texasfootball.com had their own March Madness bracket with 64 of the top Texas high school footbal players of all time going against each other. Fans voted and a Cuero High School graduate made it much further than initally expected.

Anyone familiar with the NCAA Tournament knows that the teams are seeded 1-16. Robert Strait of Cuero claimed a 14 seed which usually does not bode well for competitiors. Strait became the “Cinderella” of this tournament.

From 1985-1988, Strait played running back for the Cuero Gobblers. Strait totaled 8,411 yards rushing in his career for Cuero, helping the Gobblers to three straight championship game appearances in 1985, 1986 and 1987. Cuero won in 1987, the most recent of their three championships in football.

New additions at Cuero Little League complex

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Kids and parents will soon be heading to the Cuero Little League Complex, as the season is about to begin. New additions to the complex have arrived with more renovations on the way following the season.

During the off-season, a camp was held which benefited players and coaches, alike.

“We had a great spring camp,” past president Jim Hall noted. “We had over 128 kids of various ages each Sunday in February. Wayne Kuecker ran the softball side of the camp. Wayne coaches the junior league, and he helps out everywhere. Will Carbonara, Russell Goebel and Jennings Boothe ran the baseball side. There were so many volunteers. They did an excellent job. Kids benefited from it. Other coaches benefited from it. This is our second year to have the camp, and we intend to continue with it.”

Big opening inning leads Bears over Gobblers

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Garrett Veit notched three shutout innings of relief, but after a rough start which saw La Vernia score eight runs in the first two innings, the Gobblers dropped their district-opener, 8-4. Veit and Jeremiah Diaz, who pitched the seventh, combined to put up four straight zeros on the board for La Vernia to end the game.

“They kept us in the game,” coach Phil Schwarz noted, referring to Veit and Diaz’s performance in relief. “They put zeros on the board.”

Joey Baker took the start on the mound for Cuero, and it was a performance the senior and his teammates will look to quickly rebound from as they continue a tough district campaign. Baker allowed eight runs, all earned, in one and one-third innings of work, before Cole Payne finished the second inning and pitched the third.

Longoria's lift

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

It was not the result Alexis Longoria hoped for when she competed at the Girl’s State Powerlifting.

Yorktown coach Chelsea McClendon said, “As a coach you hate to say it was not fair or that you disagree with the officials. I just didn’t feel like we got a chance to compete.”

Longoria had a personal best of 540 pounds. That lift alone was in the fifth place range. But judges ended her efforts on a lift technicality.

“The judges did not think we were low enough but the stands did and so did the other coaches. I definitely thought we were,” said McClendon. “We are hoping for a different outcome next year.”
