Kastin Heinold will soon make the transition from little Cuero High School to one of the largest universities in the country at Texas A&M. From Hurricane Harvey at the start of her sophomore year to the coronavirus pandemic, which ultimately cut her senior year short, there have been a bevy of unforgettable moments for the salutatorian of the class of 2020.
With little thought, Heinold quickly recalled her favorite parts of high school: friends and softball.
“Softball was always really awesome,” she explained, as her joy for the sport she loves was even obvious over the phone.
Even still, it was also the most stressful time of the year, as classes were also becoming more difficult during the season.
“You had softball on top of that,” Heinold said. “It was a lot of fun being a part of the team.”
It was no question that her sophomore season in 2018 was the most memorable, as the Lady Gobblers reached the regional finals for the second time in the last three years. Those are the only two seasons in Cuero High School history that the softball team has made it that far.
