Lady Gobblers defeated by No. 4 Lady Texans

 

The Cuero Lady Gobblers may have lost to the Wimberley Texans volleyball team last Friday but it also opened their eyes that they can compete against any high ranked team in the state and perhaps be the one team to beat during playoff round.
 
Wimberley is ranked 4th in the state, according to the Texas Girls Coaches Association volleyball poll. Last year they lost during the regional finals. The year before that, they lost during the regional quarterfinals. Regardless what they have done in the past, Cuero saw first hand that Wimberley can be vulnerable.
 
In the first two games, for most teams, the score was to be expected. The Lady Gobblers fell into that hole of defeat, 16-25 and 12-25, but the Lady Gobblers did not play to their skill set.

Lady Gobblers defeat Wharton in 3 games

By Tim O’Malley
The Cuero Record
 
Coming in the under radar, the Cuero Lady Gobblers are insistent to make their presence known.
 
The Lady Gobblers hosted the Wharton Lady Tigers on Sept. 16 and sent Wharton home after three games (25-7, 25-8, 25-15).
 
Cuero coach Whitney Coles said, “Defensively, we were on it. We only had three defensive errors. We passed extremely well. Offensively, we did very well. And I am so proud of Shanice [Nelson].” Nelson, who is a freshman, was responsible for 7 kills and 3 digs.
 
But the game is more than winning and stats. Before the season began, Coles said that she was training each of the members of the team ‘to put it away.’ After 26 games of play, a morph occurred within the team.

Gobblers win in Smithville

 

“It’s a good day to be a Gobbler.”
 
Not even a rain-soaked field could hold back a determined bunch of Gobblers Friday night in Smithville. A huge second quarter allowed Cuero to take a 38-0 win over the Tigers.
 
It was the Gobblers’ third consecutive win. The team has now posted 8 quarters with no points scored against them. 
The Gobblers’ top scoring back, D’Anthony Hopkins, did not play in this contest.
 
It took one possession for Cuero to size up their opponents and adjust to the wet field. But midway through the opening period, quarterback Jared Vernor launched a 65 yd. drive from the Cuero 35.

Gobblers to host Sandcrabs Friday

 

The Cuero Gobblers (3-0) will face the Calhoun Sandcrabs (1-2) on Sept. 19 in Gobbler Stadium. These two teams, currently 1-1 against one another, have not faced each other since 2011.
 
From 1999-2005 Calhoun did not know what a winning season looked like, that is until coach Richard Whitaker took over in 2005. After a 2-8 losing season and a realignment into a new district the Sandcrabs are 65-14. Last year Calhoun was a state semifinalist in the 4A DII finishing the season 13-2.
 
Calhoun will be top heavy with experience with 33 seniors, 11 juniors and six sophomores. Key contributers for the Sandcrabs may be #79 Jorge Rios, #7 J.C. Garcia, #8 Elijah Velasquez, #10 Taylor Lee, and #24 Skyler Blinka.

Lady Gobblers win game at Smithville

 

When Cuero volleyball coach Whitney Coles said that they will be ready for Smithville she was not kidding. The Lady Gobblers swept the Lady Tigers in three last Friday in Smithville. The scores were 25-16, 25-21, 25-14.
 
“We definitely cut down on the errors we made vs. Navarro but we still had some,” Coles said.
 
Normally the Lady Gobblers have a few up front to effectively make the blocks but in this game it was a barrier that limited the Lady Tigers.
 
“We concentrated a lot on blocking last week because we did not do a very good job of it last Tuesday,” Coles said. “As you can see, they really stepped it up and put up a huge wall.”
