Yorktown Wildcats prepare to take on Shiner St. Paul Cardinals

 

In the last four years the Yorktown Wildcats have yet to defeat the Shiner St. Paul Cardinals. But there may be a new revelation. Yorktown has revamped their program “all things new.” Yorktown’s three of four returning starting seniors find themselves playing new positions because of personnel and what they had to do to be successful. At the close of the season last year the Wildcats went through a rigorous exercise program after school and early morning that continued through the summer. The team is anxious to see the fruit of their hard work. 
 
Yorktown will play St. Paul away in Shiner on Aug. 29.

Lady Gobblers win Aug. 12 game against Shiner

 

It was a slow start for the Lady Gobblers volleyball team as they played their first game of the season against Shiner at home Aug. 12. With the Lady Gobblers behind two games it may have been a little coaxing and perhaps a motherly touch from coach Whitney Coles to win the next three games for a Lady Gobbler victory.
 
Coach W. Coles, just back in time after delivering a baby two weeks before said, “[The first two games] they were kind of tired and not playing together. Every level was down.”
 
In the start of the third game Cuero showed some dominance taking the lead 7-3. Shiner called a time out.
