Following a 3-3 outing at the Navarro Tournament, the Lady Gobbler softball team hosted their first game of the 2017 season Tuesday, Feb. 21 against El Campo. Cuero scored four runs in their final two at-bats to come away with the win, 6-2. The Lady Gobblers are coming off of their best season in school history in which they advanced to the regional final last year.
“Since I’ve been here, we’ve faced consistent, stiffer competition from the first game through the last game,” Coach Cody Miller noted of the Navarro Tournament. “I think that’s benefited us. At that point, we were still minus our basketball players. We had some young guys out there, some freshmen that really showed me a lot of things. I can’t say it enough. You see them grow on a game to game basis. We played some tough teams, lost two tough games, one run games to two pretty good teams. We got some big wins, as well. We saw a lot of good things, positive things from the weekend.”
