Gobblers handle Apaches

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Weather forced the Gobbler baseball team to move their district contest with the Gonzales Apaches from Tuesday to Wednesday, but their offense and pitching was still on full display. Garrett Veit earned the win on the mound, while Joey Baker took the save in the 8-2 win.

“I like the way we’ve been swinging the bat, hitting balls hard,” coach Phil Schwarz said. “The pitchers battled, and our defense has been strong.”

Veit did not have his best outing of the season, but he was still quite effective. He only allowed one run and three hits in his five innings. Veit struck out nine Apache batters and only walked one.

“Garrett is consistent all-around,” Schwarz noted.

Tennis duo makes their mark

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Football and track reign supreme in Cuero depending on the time of year, but tennis has some athletes of their own. Raylynn Hendrick and Mitchell Green advanced to regionals in mixed doubles last week, the first Gobblers to do so since their coach, Hannah Smith, and Cameron Farris in 2009.

Green and Hendrick placed second in district behind Navarro before advancing to regionals and falling to Boerne. Navarro was defeated by Boerne in the regional semifinals.

Hendrick, a senior, and Green, a junior, had never played in the mixed category before, but they quickly developed into a strong team, getting better with each competition.

“The season for me was one of my best seasons I’ve had throughout my tennis career,” Hendrick noted. “Me and Mitchell played the whole season together, and we did really good. I’m happy with my season.”

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

It was a do or die for the Yorktown Kitty Kats last Friday night playing their last district game against Runge at home.

Yorktown was 2-7 while Runge was 3-6 in district. If Yorktown lost to Runge their season was over. That was not the case as they defeated Runge 16-10. The two teams will play again to determine fourth place and who goes into play-off round.

The Kitty Kats played heads up ball letting Runge know they came to win. During the first inning Runge had a runner at first. The runner attempted to steal second only to be picked off by Yorktown catcher Alexis Longoria when she threw the ball to first. First baseman Stephanie Mattox threw the ball to second to tag out the runner. Third baseman Laycee Guerrero stopped a ground ball for the second out at first and Kassi Billings picked up a grounder for the throw out at first.

Veit, Baker throw shutout

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Coming off a 6-0 loss on the road against La Vernia, the Gobbler were poised to come through with a big win over visiting Canyon Lake. After two scoreless innings opened the game, Cuero broke through with three runs in the third and went on to win, 8-0, in a rain-shortened contest.

Garrett Veit took the start on the mound and earned the winning with three shutout innings, only allowing one hit.

Veit helped his own cause by driving in the first two runs of the game. Jeremiah Diaz opened the third with a single. Dawston Whitfield kept the inning going with a two-out walk, before Veit drove in Diaz and Drew Rimenschneider on a deep single to right center. Rimenschneider was courtesy running for Whitfield. Veit then stole second base and scored the third run of the inning on an error by the second baseman.
