Regen Dunn tosses shutout

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Several starters from last season’s Lady Gobbler softball team graduated, but the season’s team did anything but come out of the gate slow. A five-run second frame and a shutout performance by Regen Dunn in her debut for Cuero led to a 10-0 five-inning win in the season-opener against St. Joseph on Tuesday, Feb. 16.

“We struggled early,” coach Cody Miller said. “Their pitcher had some good off-speed stuff. We struggled in the first inning, and we started to make an adjustment. We let the ball get in a little deeper, hit the ball hard and used the other side of the field.”

Lady Pirates come up short against Runge

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

Dakota Ratjen and Haley Wilson’s strong defensive presence was all on the court on Feb. 9 as they played their last district game against Runge at home.

Nordheim coach Randy Castillo said, “They never missed a practice and they give what they have.”

Runge took a strong lead in the first half 15-8 and nearly shut down the Lady Pirates in the third quarter 13-3. That did not stop Ratjen in the forth when she made two steals back-to-back and passed to Makenzie Lubyinesky and Elise Schuenemann in the paint for 2-points each. A short time later Ratjen made another steal at half court scoring after a fast break for a lay-up.

Nordheim went into a full court press shaking up Runge’s offense limiting the Lady Jackets to three points but the 16 points the Lady Pirates scored was not enough for the win, 27-34.

Gobblers fall to Apaches

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Gonzales took control from the opening tip Tuesday, Feb. 9, but the Gobbler clawed their way back in the third quarter. The Apaches clamped down in the final quarter and held on for the win between the rival schools, 50-40.
 
After a buzzer-beating overtime win over Yoakum on Friday, Feb. 5 which saw senior guard Cody Bishop sink a game-winning three-pointer, the Gobblers came up short against their other big rival, despite always being in the game.
 
“We pride ourselves in being the team with the most effort,” coach Clint Coles stated after the game. “I think our effort was there. The absolute eagerness to go win a game when it matters has to be there, and it was there Friday, and I’m not 100 percent sure it was there tonight. That’s gotta’ be there.”

Season concludes with one-point overtime defeat

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
It took a little extra time to decide the winner of the final Lady Gobbler basketball game of 2016. Cuero trailed at the half before leading by eight in the fourth quarter. Gonzales chipped their way back to force overtime and handed the Lady Gobblers a one point loss, 59-58.
 
“I would’ve liked to end with a win,” coach Amy Crain said.
 
As with any sport, the scoreboard doesn’t always tell the full story. A one point defeat in overtime reveals it was an incredible game but does not tell what led to that point.
 
Coach Crain started all five of her seniors in the final game of their high school basketball career. Those seniors are Kaelen Sievers, Courtney Clark, Alex Brannan, Camisha Williams and Jocee Bennett.
