The Cuero Record

Garrett Veit tossed three superb innings to open the game. He struck out seven batters in three innings including six in a row, only allowing one hit with two outs in the third.

Dawston Whitfield scored the first Gobbler run in the first on a sacrifice fly to center by Veit. Whitfield singled to right and advanced to third on an error by the Texan right fielder.

Senior Joey Baker took over on the mound for Veit in the fourth, earning the win in two innings of relief. Baker walked the first batter he faced and allowed a single in the fourth, but neither runner reached scoring position.

Yorktown News-View

It was a tough day on the mound for the Yorktown Wildcats at home as they faced Corpus Christi London last Friday losing 14-0.

Reagan Billing was the starting pitcher allowing one unearned run in the first inning before finishing up after the third batter in the third.

Cy Strieber came in with runners on  first and third base. CC London attempted a squeeze play with the third base runner trying to steal home before catcher Milam Eckhardt picked him off for the second out. The next batter walked before second baseman Justin Lynch picked up a grounder to throw out the batter at first.

Through the third inning Yorktown only had one hit by Dylan Sinast in the second. The momentum nearly made a turn with one out and two runners on base but were left standing with two more strikeouts. CC London had the lead after the fourth inning, 4-0.

Nordheim students help build baseball program

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

Unlike ‘The Bad News Bears’ who were a bunch of disheveled misfits who have virtually no baseball talent and a girl pitching ace, Nordheim has four girls playing and none of the players can be called ‘disheveled misfits.’

“We jumped into the deep end of the pool not knowing anyone could play.” Those were the words from Nordheim superintendent Kevin Wilson who is now Nordheim head baseball coach.

Nordheim has not had a baseball team that can be traced back in over 60 years. Nordheim Independent School District board of trustee Larry Mueller said, “I graduated in 1963. We never had a school baseball team that I can remember.

Nordheim’s baseball team is made up of four girls and eight boys. They are mainly freshman and have three seniors.

Yorktown News-View

Yorktown High School sophomore, Mason Williams, competed with the top 16 power lifters at the State-Division 3 Powerlifting meet in the 114 pound weight class in Abilene on April 2. He finished in the top 10.

Williams, originally from Lake Jackson, lived in Yorktown, briefly, during his junior high school years and has returned this year stronger than ever before.

“When I started athletics in seventh grade I was one of the weakest. I remember benching only the bar. I could barely lift it,” said Williams. “Same thing on squat too. I got tired of being one of those people so I started to work really hard.”

Gobblers score early and often, defeat Luling Eagles

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Dawston Whitfield stepped to the plate for the Gobblers in his first home start and laced a double to left-center field. Whitfield and the Gobblers dispatched the Luling Eagles, 14-2, on April Fools Day behind strong pitching and consistency at the plate. Coach Phil Schwarz is looking for that consistency remain, as the Gobblers get back into district play.

“We need to be consistent offensively, scoring runs,” Schwarz noted.

Cuero put up six runs in the first inning, four in the third and four in the fourth. Continuing to produce quality at-bats and pitching will go a long way for the Gobblers in the second half of the district season.

Whitfield went two for two at the plate with a double, two walks and one run scored. Drew Rimenschneider took care of the base-path duties for Whitfield his other three times reaching.
