Gobblers drop district matchup vs Pleasanton

Despite coming away with a loss, 81- 62 to Pleasanton, the Gobblers never showed signs of letting up.

“That’s one thing I keep saying,” coach Clint Coles said of his team’s effort. “It’s a credit to our kids, because it doesn’t matter the situation, the score, whatever. We go as hard as we can. Our effort is never something you can question.”

Cuero looked to be turning a corner during the last two games against Somerset and Beeville before hosting the Pleasanton Eagles, but inconsistency on both ends proved costly for the Gobblers.

Lady Gobblers open 2017 ranked 7th in State

Coming off the best softball season in school history, the Lady Gobblers are hungry to do even more. Last season’s regional finalist squad lost several key players but will look to reload with incoming young talent and a strong veteran presence.

“I think a lot of it is going to be us not being satisfied with that,” Coach Cody Miller stated from the start on last season’s success. “The fact that we did so well, we use it as more of a motivator to get back to that point, which I think we’re perfectly capable of doing. The experience is gonna go a long way with some of these returners. It’s also going to take them to establish some leadership among some of the younger ones to remind them of the mentality and what it takes to be successful in big games like we played last year.”

Veteran presence returns for Gobbler baseball

Gobbler baseball is less than two weeks away, and experience abounds for this season’s team. Nine players return from Coach Phil Swhwarz’s 2016 squad, including both starting pitchers.

“It’s always good to have some experience coming back, some guys that know what to expect,” Schwarz noted. “We got our top two pitchers back which is always good. We’ve been going now for a week, and we’re just looking forward to getting into some scrimmages and then into the season.”

Senior Garrett Veit and junior Cole Payne will mark the veteran presence on the mound for Cuero.

Lady Gobblers now 6-0 in district

Lady Gobbler basketball is surging at the right time. They faced a tough Somerset squad Friday, Jan. 27 but still came away with the win, 41-35. Cuero is now 6-0 in district with two games to play.

Somerset threw a box and one defense at the Lady Gobblers. It was the first time they had seen that this season.

“I think we adjusted to what they were trying to do to us,” Coach Amy Crain said. “We had not had a team run a box and one against us. It’s a great strategy. They maned up on Martina. That was the one, and then they ran a box, trying to shut down Martina. We adjusted to it and attacked the middle of that box, having Shania and her height to do that.”

Effort never lacking for Cuero in home loss

Coming off a highly competitive game on the road against Poteet, Cuero returned home to face one of the top teams in the district, Somerset. The Gobblers were defeated, 71-46, but played possibly their best all-around game of the season, showing improvement on both ends of the court.

After the game, Coach Clint Coles made sure to recognize the constant effort his team showed throughout the game.

“I think that’s one of the things that our kids take a lot of pride in,” Coles stated. “We hear a lot from opposing coaches, referees, our Coaches, regardless of what’s going on our effort can’t ever be questioned. Maybe our ability to score or some other things like that but never our effort. Our effort is always through the roof, and that’s one of the things I’m most proud about our kids. They give it all they got.”
