Lady Gobblers go down in history

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Even magical seasons must come to a close at some point, but the Lady Gobbler softball team made history in the process. The Needville Ladyjays took a 1-0 series lead into San Marcos Saturday afternoon and came out ahead in game two, 19-4 in five innings, to capture the regional title and advance to the state semifinals. Cuero had a ton of firsts along the way and have created high expectations in a sport not called football.

Four Lady Gobblers played their final softball game in Cuero green and went out in style at the plate. Courtney Clark, Chelsea Fuchs, Ashley Liendo and Emma Stanfield all notched hits. Liendo crushed a home run to straight away center in her final at-bat.
