Yeretsky returns home with three gold medals

Andrew Yeretsky may be wheel chair bound but that does not limit his competitiveness nor his skills in maneuvering his motorized wheel chair.

Andrew was born with quadriplegic cerebral palsy from premature birth. His parents, Mike and Myra Yeretsky moved their family of six from Houston to Yorktown in 2005. Since then the family has settled in and Andrews classmates have accepted him as one of their own with true Wildcat pride.

Andrew is 11 years old attending fifth grade at Yorktown Elementary School. He attends mainstream classroom academics since Pre-K but receives services from DeWitt-Lavaca Coop.

Last Friday Andrew was heading to Yoakum to compete in the DeWitt-Lavaca Special Education Cooperative Special Olympics. The YES teachers and students gave Andrew a big send-off with cheers of encouragement to bring back some hardware. The Yorktown chief of police Paul Campos gave a police escort through Main Street.

CHS Gobblers secure 3rd seed, head to playoffs

 

No one likes losing but the Cuero Gobblers had some relief when LaVernia beat Navarro leaving the Wimberley game somewhat meaningless.
 
The Gobblers lost to Wimberley 8-4, the last district game at home on May 1. Despite the loss it did not change Cuero’s position of third seed in district and moving on to the bi-district playoffs.
 
The Gobblers (14-9-1) will play against the Taylor Ducks (20-4) for bi-district championship on May 8 and 9 in La Grange. The game on Friday will start at 7 p.m. The game on Saturday, first pitch is at 1 p.m. If game three is necessary it will start 30 minutes after game two. Cuero will be home team on games one and three.

Wildcats moving in the right direction

The win column does not tell the whole story, and this is the case with the Yorktown Wildcats baseball team, as they are continuing to move in the right direction.

Two seasons ago, the Wildcats did not win a single game, this year they won three district match-ups and were competitive in many other district games. They also swept a doubleheader in non-district play against Falls City.

Coach Justin Havard summed it up quite well when saying, “It can only get better.”

The guys are quickly learning more and more about the game and their and passion is also becoming more prevalent.

After a slow start to the district campaign, the Wildcats won three of their final four in the first half before having a difficult go in the second half but continue to show signs of improvement.

Jennings, Williams heading to state track meet

Nordheim’s Emily Jennings and Jade Williams performed with a surprise ending during the Region IV-1A track meet held on May 1-2 at Pflugerville.

During the area track meet held at McMullen County, it was Williams who won the shot put at a distance of 32’-10”. Jennings came in at second, 16” inches shy of Williams’ throw. At regionals the two ladies found some power to gain their personal best and to see one off to state.

Williams threw her personal best at 33’-7.5” earning her fifth place.

Jennings, on the other hand, sailed her shot put 36’ even improving her personal best by 4’-6”. Her throw earned her second place qualifying her to go to state.

Daija Williams will return to state for another opportunity to win gold in the 100m dash. Last year she won silver with a time of 12.74.

Kats end season with heads high

The season is not how the Kitty Kats wanted to end and their last game was no where to being a close score but one could not tell as they played through to the end with the hope of a win.

At the top of the third inning Yorktown was down 12-0 against Falls City while playing their last game of the season at home on April 21.

Yorktown senior Kendalyn Naranjo said, “We wanted to end the season good.”

Kitty Kat senior Raegan Cunningham said, “We wanted this game more than any other game. We just kept fighting.”

Naranjo was the lead off batter at the bottom of the third. She hit for a single. Shelby Franke hit a ground ball to the pitcher. Naranjo took advantage of her speed to take third while Falls City threw out Franke at first. Stephanie Mattox hit a grounder to third. Mattox outran the throw to first and Naranjo scored the first run for the Kitty Kats.
