The Cuero Record
Kaelen Sievers led the way for the Lady Gobblers in their home opener on Tuesday, Aug. 18 against the Santa Gertrudis Academy Lions. Cuero won in straight sets: 25-13, 25-15 and 25-21.
Sievers tallied 10 kills, one block, four digs and five aces in the first home game of her senior season.
Sievers noted, “I was connecting with my setters,” in regards to her team-high 10 kills.
The Lady Gobblers came out firing from the outset of the match and were in control from the start. Fifteen aces were scored by Cuero, including five by Martina Stavinoha.
It was a total team effort with many new players stepping up, as well.
“We saw some great things from young girls, the back row and big hitters,” said head coach Whitney Coles. “We are gearing up for a tough district.”
