CHS freshman earns 4 medals at district

 

Cuero’s Shanice Nelson had a rare district meet for any freshman running varsity winning four medals out of five events. But it had a very shaky start during the triple jump that nearly cost her the gold medal.
 
Nelson said, “I was frustrated and I quit in my mind. Usually coach LeVar Brown is there and he was not.”
 
Nelson scratched on her first two attempts. She gathered her belongings and walked off the area.
 
She said, “I talked to coach Brown and he said that I could do this. I just have to focus without him there.”
 
Brown said, “She is just a freshman and she does not care about age. She is such a competitor. She just wants to win. I told her, ‘Do what you have to to get into the finals. Qualify.’”

Kenedy Lions overbear Yorktown Wildcats 13-0

Nathan London made the start on the bump for the Wildcats, pitching three and one-thirds of an inning, allowing eight runs. London is only a freshman and pounded the strike zone well during many points of his outing.

Kenedy was held to two runs in the first inning, on a sacrifice bunt and a passed ball before costly errors and walks thwarted the Wildcats.

Three more runs were plated by the Lions in the second. A double steal, RBI groundout, and RBI double made the score 5-0 in the second.

Golfers advance to regionals

There is usually a common theme between siblings. The younger sibling wants to do what the older sibling is doing, and do it better.

Tanner Koricanek and Wyatt Koricanek are brothers. Tanner is the younger brother and started golfing because his older brother, Wyatt, started golfing. During the season, Wyatt was shooting in the 80s. Perhaps, Tanner thought that he should do the same.

Whatever the reason, consciously or subconsciously, Tanner and Wyatt are heading to regionals.

Tanner said, “I started to play just after my brother started.”

The Lady Gobblers came from behind a six run deficit at the bottom of the second inning but soon saw the gap widening over the next four innings for a loss against La Vernia 9-15.
 
Cuero softball coach Cody Miller said, “All year we have depended on a good first inning. After the first inning in this game, we got hit around and it took the wind out of our sails. We just need to refocus.”
 
Audrey Simpson pitched the first four innings before Meagan Packebusch came in after the first batter in the fifth inning. La Vernia was up 9-6.
 
“Audrey is our workhorse on the mound. She came to me saying that she wasn’t feeling right and that her command was off. That was when we went to Meagan,” Miller said.
