Cuero notches 2 wins

Following a 3-3 outing at the Navarro Tournament, the Lady Gobbler softball team hosted their first game of the 2017 season Tuesday, Feb. 21 against El Campo. Cuero scored four runs in their final two at-bats to come away with the win, 6-2. The Lady Gobblers are coming off of their best season in school history in which they advanced to the regional final last year.

“Since I’ve been here, we’ve faced consistent, stiffer competition from the first game through the last game,” Coach Cody Miller noted of the Navarro Tournament. “I think that’s benefited us. At that point, we were still minus our basketball players. We had some young guys out there, some freshmen that really showed me a lot of things. I can’t say it enough. You see them grow on a game to game basis. We played some tough teams, lost two tough games, one run games to two pretty good teams. We got some big wins, as well. We saw a lot of good things, positive things from the weekend.”

Cuero opened the 2017 Gobbler Classic with a 6-2 win over the Edna Cowboys in six innings, behind solid pitching performances from Jared Barta and Jeremiah Diaz. The duo combined to only allow two unearned run while striking out six batters.

“Jared, he’s a strike thrower,” Coach Phil Schwarz stated following the sophomore’s first varsity start. “He gets out there and competes, throws strikes. We know we’re gonna get that from him every time we put him out there.”

Gobblers drop district matchup vs Pleasanton

Despite coming away with a loss, 81- 62 to Pleasanton, the Gobblers never showed signs of letting up.

“That’s one thing I keep saying,” coach Clint Coles said of his team’s effort. “It’s a credit to our kids, because it doesn’t matter the situation, the score, whatever. We go as hard as we can. Our effort is never something you can question.”

Cuero looked to be turning a corner during the last two games against Somerset and Beeville before hosting the Pleasanton Eagles, but inconsistency on both ends proved costly for the Gobblers.

Lady Gobblers open 2017 ranked 7th in State

Coming off the best softball season in school history, the Lady Gobblers are hungry to do even more. Last season’s regional finalist squad lost several key players but will look to reload with incoming young talent and a strong veteran presence.

“I think a lot of it is going to be us not being satisfied with that,” Coach Cody Miller stated from the start on last season’s success. “The fact that we did so well, we use it as more of a motivator to get back to that point, which I think we’re perfectly capable of doing. The experience is gonna go a long way with some of these returners. It’s also going to take them to establish some leadership among some of the younger ones to remind them of the mentality and what it takes to be successful in big games like we played last year.”
