By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Cold wind blasted Cuero Softball Field on Tuesday night, Feb. 24, when the Lady Gobblers hosted the Flatonia Lady Bulldogs. Regen Dunn picked up right where she had left off in the Navarro Tournament, posting a no-hitter and 13 strikeouts, as Cuero defeated Flatonia, 11-1, in their final game before the start of district.

Flatonia jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the top half of the first, but it would be the only time they were in front. Dunn walked the first batter of the game, and she came in to score after two wild pitches and a groundout. From there, Dunn was in control.

Pirates lose to Cowboys 36-68

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

Discombobulated – a transitive verb meaning to upset, confuse, or frustrate. That is what may have happened to the Nordheim Pirates when they faced the McMullen County (Tilden) Cowboys at home court on Tuesday, Feb. 16.

It started right off as the Pirates trailed 2-17. In the last three minutes of the first period, Nordheim made a run picking up another 13 points ending the period 15-22. It seemed that they got their rhythm but it was short-lived. In the second period the Pirates scored 5-points against the Cowboy’s 15. Nordheim never saw it coming. The Cowboys came from the top of the circle, then the short corners and the wings. Tilden was in control and Nordheim had more turnovers than they did shooting ending the half 20-37.

Bailey Parrett improved his total lift by 65 pounds placing him 15th in the region.

Following are the results of the meet.
