Gobblers open season with shutout

Gobblers, Bulldogs face-off Friday

Over a century has come and gone since the inception of the storied high school football rivalry between the Cuero Gobblers and Yoakum Bulldogs. The in-county foes are separated by a mere 15 miles. This year will mark the 107th meeting between the two DeWitt County teams. With Yoakum moving down to the 3A-Divison I level following last season, there may have been speculation that the annual meeting under the Friday night lights could be coming to a close. The thought was soundly put to rest when schedules came out last spring.

Lady Gobblers fall to Industrial Lady Cobras in four sets

Cuero has opened the volleyball season with some tough competition. The Lady Gobblers played in their first tournament of the season Aug. 11-13 in Wimberley before hosting a strong Industrial team and falling in four fierce sets (21-25, 13-25, 26-24, 19-25). More big games await, including the first Lady Gobbler Classic from Aug. 25-27. “The Wimberley Tournament is filled with teams from all over Texas, so you’re going to see fantastic talent,” head volleyball coach Whitney Coles said. “We played some smaller schools. We beat Smithville on the second day in the bronze bracket to put us in the semifinal game and ended up losing to Quinlan Ford in two. We couldn’t get our mojo right, kept shooting our-self in the foot. It wasn’t a rough weekend, but we took some licks for sure.”
