“Intensity is something we do, not what we say,” said assistant coach Lane Shands after the Wildcats final scrimmage against Runge on Thursday at home.
 
The two teams paired up evenly at the beginning of the scrimmage but after some attempt to get the Wildcats fired up, the offensive line started to show some strength and speed as they provided openings for their backs to score.
 
The defense started solemnly. Early in the scrimmage one of the linebackers made a great tackle stopping the Runge rush. The field was quiet and Coach Ty Robinson came out saying, “What is wrong with you guys! You just stopped their rush. You should be excited.”

Kitty Kats remain undefeated

 

By Tim O’Malley

The Yorktown Kitty Kats continue to run undefeated as they beat Nixon-Smiley in three and Shiner St. Paul in four.
 
The Kitty Kats had a change in schedule because of conflict of schedule so they played Shiner St. Paul on the 21st rather than the 23rd at home.
 
The first match may have taken Yorktown by surprise when they lost 18-25. The Kitty Kats won the next three but not without a fight; 26-24, 25-22, 25-23.

Cuero Record
 
It was not how the Lady Gobblers wanted it to come to an end but the Edna Cowgirls won in five.

Cuero won the first match 25-19. In the second match Edna dominated 25-15. Cuero dug in and won the third match 25-18. It looked like the Lady Gobblers found their groove but managed to give the match to Edna 25-14. With the game tied they both opted for the tie-breaker. Edna won 15-9.
 
Coach Rebecca Riojas-Fryer said, “We just need to finish games. They have so much potential. We can’t allow a couple of mistakes to bring us down.”
