The Cuero Record

Six Cuero High School athletes are advancing to the UIL 4A state track and field meet May 12-14 in Austin. Senior Kamron Mathis will compete in four events including the long jump, triple jump, 400 meter relay and 800 meter relay.

Mathis broke the school record and regional record in long jump with a jump of 24 feet and 6.25 inches on his final jump at the regional meet in Kingsville. Olympic gold medalist Fred Hansen held the school record which was set back in 1959 at 24 feet and 6 inches.

Cuero athletic director Travis Reeve said, “It is by far the oldest track record in Cuero school history. I never thought I would see it broken.”

The regional record was set by James Lott of Refugio in 1983.

Shanice Nelson, Jordan Whittington, Khouri Walker, Tre Miles and Keyanta Mack also qualified for the state meet.

Nelson will compete in long jump after placing second with a jump of 19 feet and 2 inches.

Lady Gobbler chooses Jaguars

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Courtney Clark’s stellar softball career at Cuero High School has not gone unnoticed. On Monday, April 25, she signed with the University of Houston-Victoria. It was Clark’s first choice and well-deserved recognition for the power-hitting Lady Gobbler.

Staying close to home was important to Clark when deciding where to play.

“It’s really great knowing that I’m still gonna have family and friends come watch me almost every weekend whenever we play at home,” Clark noted. “It’s just great to be able to come home to my parents. Most people don’t see them anymore a lot, because they’ve gone off. It’s great to be close to home still.”

To say she was excited to earn a tryout with the NAIA program would come as a bit of an understatement.

Gobblers handle Apaches

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Weather forced the Gobbler baseball team to move their district contest with the Gonzales Apaches from Tuesday to Wednesday, but their offense and pitching was still on full display. Garrett Veit earned the win on the mound, while Joey Baker took the save in the 8-2 win.

“I like the way we’ve been swinging the bat, hitting balls hard,” coach Phil Schwarz said. “The pitchers battled, and our defense has been strong.”

Veit did not have his best outing of the season, but he was still quite effective. He only allowed one run and three hits in his five innings. Veit struck out nine Apache batters and only walked one.

“Garrett is consistent all-around,” Schwarz noted.

Tennis duo makes their mark

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Football and track reign supreme in Cuero depending on the time of year, but tennis has some athletes of their own. Raylynn Hendrick and Mitchell Green advanced to regionals in mixed doubles last week, the first Gobblers to do so since their coach, Hannah Smith, and Cameron Farris in 2009.

Green and Hendrick placed second in district behind Navarro before advancing to regionals and falling to Boerne. Navarro was defeated by Boerne in the regional semifinals.

Hendrick, a senior, and Green, a junior, had never played in the mixed category before, but they quickly developed into a strong team, getting better with each competition.

“The season for me was one of my best seasons I’ve had throughout my tennis career,” Hendrick noted. “Me and Mitchell played the whole season together, and we did really good. I’m happy with my season.”
