Lady Gobblers undefeated district champs

For the first time since the 2009-2010 season, the Cuero Lady Gobbler basketball team are undefeated district champions. They wrapped up district Tuesday, Feb. 7 with a 49-27 win over Pleasanton on senior night.

“It’s just rewarding,” coach Amy Crain said as her team celebrated their district championship. “It’s something that we talked about at the beginning of the year. Especially with the kids coming back and the new kids and coming off of a difficult year last year with injuries, it just was really neat and exhilarating to see the kids’ efforts rewarded. Week by week, day by day, they put the work in. They stayed the course. They did what I asked them to do both offensively and defensively. Even when things didn’t go our way, we just stuck to it and improved each week. To see it end the way it ended, as far as district champions, it’s kind of a dream come true for the kids. As a coach, you want the kids to be as successful as they can. To see them happy excited and thrilled to get that championship just makes it all worth while to me. I just can’t be more happy for the girls. They deserve it.”
