Volleyball season concludes

Everything was left on the court during Cuero’s bi-district volleyball match against the Devine Arabians last week. Though the season ended in the hands of defeat (21-25, 23-25, 19-25), the Lady Gobblers took much more than a loss from that night in Floresville.
“They did everything that we asked them to do, everything that we worked on this week they did,” Cuero coach Whitney Coles said.”
Serve-receive passing hurt Cuero in the first set and allowed Devine to jump out to a five point lead in the opening set.
“That was just nerves,” Coles said. “We’re pretty young back there. It showed a little bit, but they settled down. It was just about finding your rhythm, so I’m proud of them. They played really well.”
Cuero went on a 6-1 run after trailing by five in the first set to tie it, before the set ultimately went to Devine. Cuero gave Devine a run in each set before falling in straight sets to the District 29 champions.
After the match, coach Coles talked to her team about how much their four seniors (Grace Andrews, Summer Gamez, Maraya Guzman, Ainsley Reeve) have given throughout their time in the Lady Gobbler volleyball program. She also knows they have a great group of young players ready to take over.
“I’m so thankful that we have such a talented younger class that saw those four seniors and how hard they worked and how bad they wanted it, the fun that they had day in and day out and how they put themselves out there for those girls to learn from,” Coles said. “I’m just thankful those four were the particular seniors for this group of freshmen.”
