Lady Gobblers keep winning streak in Wimberley game

 

The Cuero Lady Gobblers had a near scare but pushed through for a solid district win over Wimberley last Friday night at home.
 
Meagan Packebusch pitched a solid game but had her moment to decide to fold or to persevere at the top of the third when runners were at second and third with no outs. Wimberley bunted toward third to force a throw to first. The runner at third scored and the batter was safe at first. The momentum was in Wimberley’s favor with runners at first and third. The next batter popped up to short stop Chelsea Veit for the first out. Packebusch was back in the zone to strike out the next batter. The third out came with a pop up to first base.

Yorktown Kitty Kat coach Blaschke may face most challenging season

This may be the most challenging year for Yorktown softball coach Michael Blaschke with only one full-time starter and three part-time starters.

Blaschke said, “This is the youngest and most inexperienced team I have ever had. No one on the team has ever pitched before.”

Returning to the roster are seniors Kendalyn Naranjo - centerfield, Raegan Cunningham-pitcher, catcher, third and first base; and sophomores Stephanie Mattox- pitcher, first and third base, and Rebecca Mireles- outfield.

The team consists of two seniors, one junior, two sophomores, and six freshman.

However, Blaschke is encouraged. He said, “This team is fun to coach. They are eager to learn and they are hard workers.  We have two great assistant coaches (Crystal Martinez and Chelsea Hoffman) who are doing a fantastic job of developing these young players.”

Diebel said, “I was looking at McMurry and other schools but I did not think TLU would offer me an academic scholarship. I was really excited because, of all my options, that was the best place for me to go.”
 
Diebel was not looking for any school. 
 
“I was looking for a family atmosphere, something like Cuero, with a great tradition and fans,” Diebel said.
