Yorktown Wildcats take care of business defeating Louise 44-38

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

There was no hyped run entering on the Wildcats Stadium as the Wildcats walked arm-in-arms. It was all business and it was business they took care of defeating the Louise Hornets 44-38 finishing runner up in district.

Milam Eckhardt ran his best game of the season with 14 carries for 98 yards rushing. He said, “I followed my tackle Erin Krause. We worked on it at practice over and over again.”

But the most unique plays were not the rushing or the sweeps. Yorktown made three passes for three touchdowns, something the opponents have not seen all season. In fact it was something that this team has not done since 2013.

Yorktown quarterback Jayden Webb said, “We are not much of a passing team. I have been practicing hard working with Coach Threadgill. Nothing but practice and waiting for that opportunity to shine. When I got that chance I took it.”

1970 coin flip anniversary

On Friday, Nov. 13, 1970, the Cuero football team finished in a three-way tie with Floresville High School and Samuel Clemens High School for the championship of the East Zone of District 14-AAA. The tie was resolved by a coin flip in Nixon between the three schools. Cuero High School won the flip, and subsequently advanced to the state finals for the first time.
 
The 2015 calendar replicates the 1970 calendar, and to communicate that event, former players and coaches are organizing a trip to Nixon Friday, Nov. 13 to visit the location, remember that season and eat lunch. After lunch, they play to return to Cuero, so people can attend the playoff game for the 2015 team.
 
Two of the coaches have committed to attend and several players plan to join. They plan to meet at about 10:30 a.m. in the Bealls parking lot and proceed to Nixon.

Kitty Kats take 18th bi-district title

The Yorktown Kitty Kat volleyball team just made their 18th win as bi-district champions after defeating San Antonio Stacey in three sweeps, 25-9, 25-10, 25-11.

Yorktown coach Deirdre Alexander said, “No matter how many times you have been to the playoffs you always get adrenaline pumping and the experience is always exciting. Just getting that first playoff win under the belt helps the team overcome nerves.”

The Kats performed as expected. Deirdre said, “I was very pleased with our performance. As a team, overall, we played a competitive strong game. We set and hit well. If I had to say there was a weakness I would have to go back to our missed serves.”

One area of concern is defense. The Kats have not seen a lot of challenge in their defensive game since the Bronte Showdown. She said, “I would have liked to see our defense challenged more to help prepare us for the following match up, but there were definitely many positives from the game.”
