Big opening inning leads Bears over Gobblers

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Garrett Veit notched three shutout innings of relief, but after a rough start which saw La Vernia score eight runs in the first two innings, the Gobblers dropped their district-opener, 8-4. Veit and Jeremiah Diaz, who pitched the seventh, combined to put up four straight zeros on the board for La Vernia to end the game.

“They kept us in the game,” coach Phil Schwarz noted, referring to Veit and Diaz’s performance in relief. “They put zeros on the board.”

Joey Baker took the start on the mound for Cuero, and it was a performance the senior and his teammates will look to quickly rebound from as they continue a tough district campaign. Baker allowed eight runs, all earned, in one and one-third innings of work, before Cole Payne finished the second inning and pitched the third.

Longoria's lift

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

It was not the result Alexis Longoria hoped for when she competed at the Girl’s State Powerlifting.

Yorktown coach Chelsea McClendon said, “As a coach you hate to say it was not fair or that you disagree with the officials. I just didn’t feel like we got a chance to compete.”

Longoria had a personal best of 540 pounds. That lift alone was in the fifth place range. But judges ended her efforts on a lift technicality.

“The judges did not think we were low enough but the stands did and so did the other coaches. I definitely thought we were,” said McClendon. “We are hoping for a different outcome next year.”

Gobblers take down Rockport

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

With wind swirling through Gobbler Ballpark, Cuero battled Rockport in their final home non-district game before the start of district. Colton Blackwell went 2 for 3 at the plate with an RBI and one run, leading the Gobblers to a 5-3 victory over the Pirates, while Cole Payne dealt another strong performance on the mound.

Blackwell drove in Garrett Veit in the first frame, and it looked like the Gobbler bats would be clicking early. Rockport put up four straight shutout innings and took a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the sixth, when Cuero broke through.

“We’re trying to open our offense,” coach Phil Schwarz said. “We’re struggling at the plate but found a way.”
