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.
