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.”

Grant Diebel commits to TLU

 

Grant Diebel will have the opportunity to play football, as cornerback, at Texas Lutheran University after signing on with them on March 6 at the Cuero High School library.
 
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.

Yorktown Wildcat baseball promising

The Yorktown Wildcats baseball season is just underway, and even though it has been a trying start, there are reasons to have confidence about this season and the future of Wildcat baseball.

Six players from last year’s team return to the field with experience and better understanding of the game. Along with their increased knowledge of baseball comes enhanced leadership, which is especially important with a young team that includes freshmen.

Coach Justin Havard said how surprised he was with how the freshmen have stepped up to the plate and accepted the challenge of catching onto the game faster than in recent years.
Specific strenghths include increased pitching depth and several strong hitters. The pitching rotation now has five guys, an increase of three from last season. This includes Reagan Billings, Cy Strieber, Tanner Koricanek, Nathan London, and Jayden Webb.

Road ends for the Nordheim Pirates

The Nordheim Pirates took it to the limit meeting the Rocksprings Angoras in round 1 (Bi-district) on Feb. 24 in Charlotte.

The Pirates knew what had to be done.

Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “We will have size on them and should be able to out-rebound them. [We need] to slow down senior Ben Enriquez and junior Tony Sanchez (two top scorers) and we will be fine.

The first quarter the Pirates were behind 9-10. Rocksprings tried to take it to a bigger lead only to find Nordheim close of their trail ending the half 27-32.

After the break Nordheim came out in normal Pirate fashion, outscoring their opponent 18-14 making it a 1-point game.

Nordheim continued to make plays during the fourth quarter but Rocksprings answered back each time.

With four seconds remaining Nordheim was ahead 62-59.
