Gobblers end regular season undefeated

Finishing the regular season without a loss is quite an achievement: the last time Cuero did so was 2009. That season, Cuero went on to the semifinals before losing a nail biter to Gilmer, 42-36. In the playoffs, every week is a new season with prior successes not accounting for much. The Gobblers will open postseason play with a bi-district contest against the Raymondville Bearkats, who finished fourth in District 16 with a record of 3-7 (2-3 in district). Cuero and Raymondville last faced in the quarterfinal round of the 1998 playoffs in 3A. The Gobblers defeated the Bearkats, 31-7, before falling to Aledo in the state championship game, 14-7.

Gobblers earn district title, playoffs await

Defense wins championships is the old mantra which still holds true today. Cuero put up 34 points on the board against Wharton in their regular season finale, but more importantly kept the Tiger offense out of the end zone, as the Gobblers prepare for another playoff push. Wharton scored off a Gobbler fumble to open the game, but it was all Cuero from there on out. Cuero won the district title in 15-4A with the 34-7 victory. Not only did this group capture a district championship, but they went 10-0 in the regular season for the first time since 2009, a mark which is a testament to this Gobbler team in a stout district.

Lady Gobblers post two wins, reach postseason

Five Lady Gobbler volleyball players celebrated senior night on Tuesday, Oct. 25 with a dominating win over district-foe Pleasanton (25-12, 25-17, 25-17). The seniors played their final match at The Roost but not the final match of their high school volleyball careers, as they qualified for postseason play. “It’s huge,” head coach Whitney Coles said of her team’s performance. “We felt kinda like we let down a little bit when we went there [Pleasanton]. They’re a really scrappy team. They make some incredible plays on defense. They make you earn every point, and we concentrated on that from the moment we got home after the first time we played them. I think that the girls just had a great mindset going in. They mentally prepared for that and just really wanted the game badly.”
