Golfers advance to regionals

There is usually a common theme between siblings. The younger sibling wants to do what the older sibling is doing, and do it better.

Tanner Koricanek and Wyatt Koricanek are brothers. Tanner is the younger brother and started golfing because his older brother, Wyatt, started golfing. During the season, Wyatt was shooting in the 80s. Perhaps, Tanner thought that he should do the same.

Whatever the reason, consciously or subconsciously, Tanner and Wyatt are heading to regionals.

Tanner said, “I started to play just after my brother started.”

Cuero softball coach Cody Miller said, “All year we have depended on a good first inning. After the first inning in this game, we got hit around and it took the wind out of our sails. We just need to refocus.”
 
Audrey Simpson pitched the first four innings before Meagan Packebusch came in after the first batter in the fifth inning. La Vernia was up 9-6.
 
“Audrey is our workhorse on the mound. She came to me saying that she wasn’t feeling right and that her command was off. That was when we went to Meagan,” Miller said.

Wildcats on a two game winning streak

Cy Strieber was not expecting to pitch against Pettus on Tuesday, March 24 but tossed five gritty innings of relief and led the Wildcats to a 13-10 victory, moving the team to 2-6 in district and 4-8 overall.

Tanner Koricanek started on the mound and worked out of a bases loaded jam in the first inning but was unable to complete the second before Reagan Billings took over for an inning.

The Wildcat bats were clicking early with two runs in the first. Milam Eckhardt began the inning with a single, stole second and third, and scored on an error by the Pettus third baseman. Strieber reached on a prior misplayed grounder by the third baseman, stole second, moved to third on the error that scored Eckhardt, and stole home.

Billings moved to the mound with the bases loaded and no outs in the second. Back-to-back wild pitches and an infield single allowed three Pettus runners to score before Billings ultimately struck out the side.

Wildcats take Three Rivers 3-2

The Yorktown Wildcats took advantage of Cy Strieber’s athleticism to score in the first and fifth innings for a 3-2 win over the Three Rivers Bulldogs Tuesday night at home.

Reagan Billings pitched 7 innings for the win. He allowed 9 hits, walked 5, and struck out 11.

Yorktown coach Justin Havard said, “It is always good when you have pitching. Reagan Billings had a heck of a game. Cy Strieber (went 3 for 3, 1 RBI, 2 runs scored) got out of his slump and came in. Milam Eckhardt, behind the plate, was solid.”

The Wildcat defense was solid. Three Rivers hit fly balls to each outfielder. Logan Romans, Matthew Ortiz and Stephen Wagner each made the catch to stop any rallies from developing.

Billings was quick off the mound to pick up three grounders to throw the batters out at first.
