The Nordheim cross country team went to the Kenedy Cross Country meet on Oct. 3 and returned with much expected results and then some.

There were 30 boys to compete in the varsity class. Eli Julian finished first in the three mile with a time of 16:24.

Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “Eli is running fast. That was his fastest three mile he has ever ran. He is looking good for another return trip to state.”

Braden Villarreal placed 11th, 19:30; Daniel Villarreal placed 12th, 19:36; William Anderson placed 13th, 19:38.

Two big wins for Lady Gobblers

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero’s Lady Gobblers were back to full strength for the first time since near the start of the season, and it paid dividends. Cuero defeated the Yoakum Lady Bulldogs on Tuesday, Sept. 29 in straight sets (25-11, 25-15, 25-12) for a pivotal first district victory.
 
“That was big for us,” coach Whitney Coles said. “Yoakum came up and they played hard.”
 
The Lady Gobblers took control in the match from the start and remained in control for the duration. They understood the importance of picking up the win.
 
Tory Littles said, “All three of our hitters were rolling.”
 
Littles is only a sophomore, but as a starter and second year on varsity is already a leader on the team. Littles claimed a team-high five digs along with four kills, four blocks and one ace.

Wildcats take fifth straight win

All that could be heard in the visitor’s locker room, after the game was, “Whatever Bruni was ranked, we are ranked higher” and “We are the champions” after the Yorktown Wildcats defeated the Bruni Badgers 14-12 last Friday night in Three Rivers.

It was a matter of who will break first. Both teams played tough defense but the Wildcats played harder. Highlight play was when Bruni was on their own 25-yard line. The Wildcat defense stepped up the intensity of their game sacking the Badger quarterback. The following play Jamel Wade picked off the QB’s wide sweep, cutting the legs from beneath him. The following play forced the Badgers to punt. K.J. Shultz blocked the punt picked up by Ryan Zuniga. He was tackled inside the Bruni 2-yard line and the end of the first quarter. The Wildcats had their opportunity to score. They made three attempts up the middle for no gain and lost the ball in turnovers.

Gobblers make strides in final non-district game

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
In their final tune-up before the start of district competition, the Cuero Gobblers battled with the undefeated Giddings Buffaloes, scoring on their first possession but coming up short, 45-26. The Gobblers moved the ball more on the offensive side, but defensive miscues were once again costly.
 
“I thought we made good strides this week,” head coach Travis Reeve said. “We still made some mistakes that kept us from winning the game.”
 
Senior quarterback Elex Martinez continued to run the ball well for the Gobblers, totaling 135 yards and two touchdowns, while freshman wide-receiver Jordan Whittington claimed his top receiving effort of his young varsity career. Whittington snagged four catches for 66 yards including a long of 39.

Kitty Kats sweep Runge in three

Nearing the second round of district play, the Yorktown Kitty Kats are playing harder with serving and making difficult plays to prepare for the playoffs. The Runge Lady Jackets felt the brunt as the Kitty Kats won in three straight sweeps.

In the first game Shelby Franke served seven straight serves before Runge could get a handle on it. Five more serves came across before Franke served it out of bounds. Kaylee Dueser and Emily Gwosdz finished out the game with Runge having difficulty in serve and receive. Kitty Kats won 25-7.

Game two Runge had a little time to adjust and take advantage of Yorktown’s serving out of bounds. The game was close up to 8-5. The harder serves from Yorktown returned to extend and end the game 25-14.

Wildcats get retribution

If momentum has any effect on a game it certainly was the case for the Yorktown Wildcats during non-district play against Woodsboro last Friday night in Eagles Stadium.

The first 20 seconds on the clock were monumental for the Wildcats. On kick-off return Woodsboro attempted the on side kick where Ysidro Garza picked up and ran for a 55-yard touch down. Milam Eckhardt scored on the 2-point conversion for an 8-0 lead. Just after kick-off, Woodsboro wanted to swing the momentum back their way by throwing a pass long into the red zone. Jamel Wade intercepted the pass to start the Wildcats on their own 42-yard line. Lightening flashed and the game was put on delay for 30 minutes.

With the momentum nearly gone, the Wildcat defense shut down the Eagles running.

Kitty Kats on a winning streak

The Yorktown Kitty Kats have a six game winning streak after defeating Kenedy in three and Woodsboro in four this past week.

During the Kenedy game Shelby Franke worked on her jump serve while others worked on serving hard when given the opportunity while ahead by several points. The practice was much to their favor 25-19, 25-9, 25-10.

However, that was not the case when they played Woodsboro. The Lady Eagles gave them some competition with true grit battles. Yorktown did make some mistakes that cost them opportunities while serving and some serve and receive.

The Lady Eagles were on to Emily Gwosdz and Shelby Franke’s front line of attack. They were able to defend, set and score. Kaylee Duesser took advantage of the court tipping the ball and setting up for Halle Martin to take in a few kills. It was not long before the Lady Eagles had to guess who was to get the ball and when losing the match in four games.
