Metting heading to sectional for the third time

Seely Metting is 11 years old, going on 12 in October. She can throw. She can kick, pass and catch. What she can’t do is play football.

Seely said, “I have always wanted to play football but my dad (Brad Metting) will not let me. I was already offered to play and was told that I would be all-time quarterback.”
Seely has competed in the Punt, Pass and Kick competition held in Yorktown for the last three years. Her first year she went to sectionals. Last year she won sectionals to compete at Team Championships.

“It was an awesome experience,” said Seely. “I was on television (the big screen) in the Texas Stadium.”

She placed fifth overall for a total distance of 221’ 6”.

“My best event was in the kick (83’6”) which is my worst event.”

When she is not throwing the football she is involved in “anything a girl can do in sports and I love horses. I do barrel racing.”

Wildcats lose opener against Cardinals

Taking the first loss of the season was not the hopes of the Yorktown Wildcats Friday. They lost to Shiner St. Paul Cardinals at home, 8-26.

Yorktown head coach Ty Robinson said, "We are never happy with a loss but, more disappointing was the number of mistakes. The Cardinals were really good and I hope this is a wake up call. We can learn a lot from this lost."

The Wildcats had first possession of the ball and they looked slow and off-quilter. They soon gave up possession and the Cardinals wasted no time responding. After the first play, the Cardinal quarterback ran a keeper for a 68-yard touchdown. The extra point was good and they took the lead 0-7.

Yorktown had opportunities but many assignments were not followed through leaving the Wildcats short on downs.

Kitty Kats make top bracket at Sinton Tournament

Yorktown volleyball coach Deirdre Alexander came home after the Sinton tournament Aug. 20-22 with a mixed bag of emotions. She said, “I am proud that we did not get stomped. I am proud we were in contention because heading over we knew how large some of the schools were. You are never sure what to expect. But then again, if you are going to be that close to winning you are disappointed when you do not find a way to win. It was a good day except no wins.”

The Kitty Kats won three matches to qualify to play in the championship bracket. They beat 4-A team Rockport-Fulton 25-19, 25-21; defeated 6-A team Corpus Christi Ray 14-25, 25-16, 25-17; and 4-A team Robstown 25-9, 25-14.

“There were 32 teams at Sinton and we made the bracket with the top eight teams,” said Alexander.

The final eight were Tuloso Midway, George West, Kingsville Academy, Calhoun, Cuero, Gregory Portland, Cotulla, and Yorktown.
