Lady Gobbler Holiday Classic Tournament

Cuero High School’s Lady Gobbler basketball team hosted their first tournament at The Roost Dec. 29-30. Along with Cuero, Somerset, Industrial, Wimberley and Corpus Christi Veteran Memorial also participated. After losing by one point to Industrial, the Lady Gobblers came away with a 57-39 win over Somerset in game two.

“We were excited to do that,” head coach Amy Crain stated of being able to host the event. “We feel like our facilities, new school buildings and locker room are such a blessing. I know our girls have enjoyed them. It’s nice to share it with other schools. They’ve come in here and were wowed. I heard nothing but ‘wow this gym is so nice.’ It makes us feel good, but we were excited to host our first basketball tournament in it.”

Shaking off the rust may have played a part in their opening game against Industrial, with Cuero losing by one point.

Turnovers prove costly for Cuero

Cuero faced a familiar opponent to wrap up the first half of their season. Former district rival Navarro visited The Roost Friday, Dec. 16. The Lady Panthers stormed out to a 12 point halftime lead, before the Lady Gobblers settled in during the closing stages but came up short, 45-39. Cuero is now 11-6 on the season.

“Navarro used to be a district foe,” coach Amy Crain noted. “We knew they were gonna put a lot of pressure on us. We’ve played them before. We know them; they know us.”

Cuero took some time to find their form, falling behind early due to a large amount of turnovers, 20 in total. The Lady Gobblers hit their stride in the final quarter but could not quite overcome the early miscues.

Gobbler football 2016: A look back

Only one team each year can become state champions in each division. Not finishing the year with a win and therefore a state title does not equate to a dismal season, though. Cuero football shows what it means to be a Gobbler each and every season, and this year was no different.

The Gobblers started the season with some remarkable numbers. For starters, they only allowed 14 points during five non-district games. One touchdown was scored by county rival Yoakum in one of the more exciting games of the season, while the other was claimed by the Columbus Cardinals in a convincing Gobbler win. In total, Cuero outscored their non-district opponents, 224 to 14.

District started with some competition, as the Gobblers faced a tough Sweeny Bulldog squad on the road. Cuero trailed at halftime for the first time in 2016 before coming away with the win, 21-18.

Gobbler basketball returns nine players

Nine players return for coach Clint Coles in his fourth season as boy’s varisty basketball coach for Cuero. Last season, Cuero had all new faces. This time around the Gobblers are working with many experienced players, as they prepare for a new district.

“It’ll be a lot different from last year,” Coles noted from the start. “Last year, we didn’t have anybody coming back. We were all brand new varsity guys. This year, we’ll have nine guys who played in varsity games for us last year that’ll be coming back. That experience factor and sense of being on the varsity stage before will definitely help us out.”

Varsity returners for Cuero include Jaden Williams (junior), Johnny Whitehead (junior), Peyton Walk (junior), Isaiah Elizondo (senior), Tyrin Taylor (sophomore), Bralen Taylor (junior), Phillip Taylor (senior), Tyler Edwards (senior) and Jordan Whittington (sophomore).

Gobblers fight to very end

Cuero Gobbler football left it all on the field this season. Battling and fighting to the very end each week was always evident. In week 15, though, Cuero came up against another one of the top teams in 4A, the Geronimo Navarro Panthers. Cuero had defeated Navarro the past three season in the playoffs, but the Panthers came up with the win this time around during a cold December night in San Antonio, 35-21.

Despite the loss, Cuero displayed an impressive season, advancing to consecutive state quarterfinals for the first time since the 2008 and 2009 seasons.
