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.

Pirates return to the playoffs

The Nordheim Pirates finished the season in second place sharing the seat with Austwell-Tivoli.

Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “It is the most games we have won since I have been here. It is the first winning season since I don’t know when.”

According to MaxPreps, the Pirates have not had a winning season recorded since 2005. This is the first time they have gone to the playoffs since 2006-07 when they had an overall record of 9-15. This year the Nordheim Pirates ended the regular season 15-9.

“I think this group worked really hard from start to finish. It has been a crazy year so far. We have yet to play our best game but we still found a way to win a lot of games,” coach Williams said.

Earlier today, Austwell-Tivoli and Nordheim had a coin toss to decide second and third seed. Nordheim won the toss and will play their first round of playoff against the winner of Friday’s District 31 game, Dhanis vs. Rockspring.

Gobblers finish season on top, head to playoffs

 

The Cuero Gobblers took a hard loss to Navarro last Friday night at the Panther’s gymnasium.
 
It was a close match in the beginning as the half ended 33-35. The Gobblers, not a stranger to close games in the half, usually come out in the second half and play their game. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Navarro ran away in the scoring hitting 26 points in each quarter and the final win, 63-87.
 
Cuero Gobbler coach Clint Coles said, “We did not play well and they played great. We just got beat.”
 
Cuero (18-8, 9-3) is in a three way tie until La Vernia (15-14, 9-2) and Wimberley (19-8, 9-2) play their last district game.
