Rounding out district

Two evenly matched sets, which were split, looked to be paving the way for a back-and-forth contest between last Friday night between Cuero and Navarro. Despite the close start, Panther fans were able to go home with a four set win (20-25, 27-25, 13-25, 15-25) over the Lady Gobblers.
“I think we lost our energy,” Cuero coach Misty Fletcher said of what changed between the second and third sets. “I think it was a bit of a mental lapse. That’s a seasoned program, and they kind of relied on that. Our mental edge slipped away, and we stepped off the gas a little bit.”
Being one of the top ranked teams in 4A, Cuero knew what they were up against. Even a loss showed signs which should be encouraging.
“You could definitely see where we could be,” Fletcher said. “Our potential is there. We’re right on the edge of kind of getting over that hump and really being a team and going and getting after some people. You can definitely tell that we’re there, and those moments we have to turn into something a little more consistent.”
