The Cuero Record
After earning two key wins the previous week to wrap up the first half of district competition, the Lady Gobbler volleyball team visited the Navarro Lady Panthers on Tuesday, Oct. 6. Cuero won the first set before losing the next three in a highly competitive match (25-21, 14-25, 19-25, 12-25).
“We played our guts out,” coach Whitney Coles said.
Kaelen Sievers and Martina Stavinoha rattled-off a combined 26 kills, while Mia Knetig claimed 29 assists, and Mary Kate Krueger earned a team-high eight digs.
Defensively, Navarro was very disciplined, something which stood out to Cuero’s coach.
Coles said, “Navarro is really good. They’re the best defensive team I’ve ever seen.”
Cuero was in control at the start of the match, playing at top form.
