Nordheim ISD starting new program

 

Another first for Nordheim Independent School District is underway as steps are being taken for the school to have a baseball and softball high school program. 
 
Tim Scherwin, Nordheim teacher/coach said, “It may take a couple of years. It will give opportunities to kids who may not have an interest in other sports.”
 
Nordheim School superintendent Kevin Wilson said, “When I hired Tim, he had the background and we felt that this was a good time to start up the program.”
 
The softball program is still in its infancy and steps are being taken to ensure to have the support and interest to keep the program ongoing.

Yorktown High in new district

 

Yorktown’s Wildcats and Kitty Kats will see a little shorter travel distance for its district games in the next school year as a result of reclassification.
University Interscholastic League released its biennial reclassification results Monday morning.
The new classification will see Yorktown High School moved to Class 2A Division 2 District 14 which will include Falls City, Kenedy, Louise and Runge.
Because the UIL created a new conference for the larger school districts - 6A, the enrollment cut-offs saw Yorktown moved from 1A to 2A. Conference 2A is now for school districts with enrollments from 105 to 219. The Division 2 schools have enrollments of 105 to 157. Coach Ty Robinson said Yorktown’s enrollment is 139.

Wildcats fall short to Beavers

 

Yorktown Wildcats traveled to Falls City on Jan. 28 and returned with a little less than expected. The Wildcats lost in a close match 52-55.
 
Yorktown coach Scott DeMarco said, “We played decent. We missed some free throws early and it came back on us.”
As it stands, the Wildcats are 2-4. They need to win the rest of their games if they want to secure third seed for the playoffs.
 
“They almost have to be to control our own fate,” DeMarco said.
 
Jan. 31 Yorktown will face Pettus away returning home for the next two games. Feb 4 the Wildcats play Three Rivers and on Feb. 7 they play Kenedy. The Wildcats will end their district games away in Runge on Feb. 11.
