Lady Gobblers go down in history

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Even magical seasons must come to a close at some point, but the Lady Gobbler softball team made history in the process. The Needville Ladyjays took a 1-0 series lead into San Marcos Saturday afternoon and came out ahead in game two, 19-4 in five innings, to capture the regional title and advance to the state semifinals. Cuero had a ton of firsts along the way and have created high expectations in a sport not called football.

Four Lady Gobblers played their final softball game in Cuero green and went out in style at the plate. Courtney Clark, Chelsea Fuchs, Ashley Liendo and Emma Stanfield all notched hits. Liendo crushed a home run to straight away center in her final at-bat.

Baker continuing baseball career

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Joey Baker has finished his days of high school baseball, but his playing days are far from over. Baker signed to play with Our Lady of the Lake University, an NAIA program in San Antonio.

A three-year starter for the Gobblers, Baker is looking forward to what lies ahead.

“It means a lot,” Baker said. “I feel real good reaching this goal and moving on to the next chapter of my life.”

Over the past three seasons, there have been aspirations of playing college ball for Baker, but before a strong showing at a tryout in mid-May, he had not signed with a team for the upcoming fall.

“I had a tryout with them [OLLU] last week,” Baker said. “It went real well, and they called me Tuesday [May 24] to let me know the news.”

Baker spent the majority of his time in Cuero playing the outfield, mainly center the past two season with some time on the mound. OLLU will bring in Baker, a southpaw, as a pitcher.

Needville takes 1-0 series lead

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Only one earned run crossed the plate for the Needville Ladyjays in the opener of the best-of-three regional final in Weimar. That run on a single to right-center field gave Needville a walk-off 2-1 win over Cuero in eight innings.

Cuero continued to hit the ball hard, and Regen Dunn displayed yet another quality performance in the circle.

“It was great work,” coach Cody Miller said of Dunn’s performance. “I thought she did everything she could’ve done to get us that win.”

Needville went up 1-0 in the bottom of the second on a throwing error by shortshop Courtney Clark, but the Lady Gobblers quickly bounced back.

“I thought we shook it off pretty fast,” Miller said, referring to the error. “We continued to battle, and that’s all I ask for.”

A league of our own

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Graduation is this Friday night for Cuero High School, but four Lady Gobbler softball seniors will still have some unfinished business to tend to, after they receive their diplomas. Cuero defeated Rockport-Fulton last weekend to advance to the regional final for the first time in school history.

Game one saw a pitcher’s duel and strong defense take a scoreless game into the sixth inning, before the Lady Gobblers broke through for three runs.

Brooke Opiela reached on a wild pitch to start the inning. Regen Dunn reached and advanced Opiela on a single, before Raevin Ruiz put both runners in scoring position on a sacrifice bunt, bringing senior Courtney Clark to the plate. Clark delivered with a bas-hit, scoring Opiela for the would-be game-winning run. Emma Stanfield followed with a fielder’s choice which scored Dunn, and Clark touched home on Maegan Pakebusch’s groundout.
