Adjustments were made, and the offense ran like a machine for most of the night.

Lady Gobblers handle Beeville

Midway through district play, the Cuero Lady Gobblers sit at 2-2. They defeated the Beeville Lady Trojans Oct. 4 in straight sets (25-13, 25-11, 25-8), putting together a complete performance before dropping a five-set match to the Pleasanton Eagles last Friday night. “We challenged the girls to really put together a full game,” head coach Whitney Coles stated following the Beeville match. “They haven’t done that yet. We fire on all cylinders in game one and just kind a get relaxed, and you can’t do that. From the very beginning, the atmosphere was fantastic, because it was junior high night. There was a lot of energy, and they fed off of that. They took care of business from the get go, and that’s what I’m most proud of.”
