Undefeated district start

Post presence and stifling defense is starting to become the mantra for Lady Gobbler basketball. Cuero moved to 3-0 in district after a 38-21 win over the Beeville Lady Trojans on Tuesday, Jan. 17. Seniors Martina Stavinoha and Shania Hatter poured in a combined 29 points.

“We started very fast,” head coach Amy Crain noted. “What stood out to me was we were focused, and we were prepared from the get go. We just consistently did what we needed to do throughout the game.”

Cuero quickly jumped out in front to a 14-7 lead in the opening quarter and held Beeville to three points in the second quarter.

‘Take care of the basketball’

District opened for Cuero against one of the top teams in the region, the Beeville Trojans. Cuero came out firing in the first quarter, holding Beeville to 13 points and only trailed by four. The Trojans’ quick ball movement and team defense proved too much though as the Gobblers lost, 73-32.

“Opening up against Beeville is tough,” head coach Clint Coles explained. “They’re one of the better teams in the region, bringing back almost their whole team. I thought early on we did a really good job defensively of forcing them to play from the outside, clogging up the middle, but we killed ourself offensively, and that made us play too much defense. We ran out of defensive gas in the second half.”

Turnovers and the inability for most of the game to set their offense proved costly for the Gobblers.

‘Keeping our momentum’

Since the start of the 2017, Lady Gobbler basketball has gone 4-0, including two district wins over Poteet and Somerset. Cuero wrapped up non-district play Friday, Jan. 13 with a 55-48 win over Victoria St. Joseph. “It was fast paced, and I think it was a good win for us, just continuing to prepare us and keeping our momentum as we continue with out district race next week,” head coach Amy Crain noted following the win. “St. Joe had a couple things: a well-coached team and very good players that were hard to defend. With their ball movement and their skill handling the ball and driving off the dribble, it really tested us defensively. I thought we did a good job of containing and helping and playing defense as a team, which you have to do against really good players. It was really a great test for us. St. Joe has a great ball club. We continue with the momentum going into district.” Seniors Shania Hatter and Martina Stavinoha posted big games.

Gobblers win home-opener

Gobbler basketball held their first game at The Roost Jan. 3 against the Bloomington Bobcats and captured the win, 58-53. Johnny Whitehead and Jaden Williams led the way, combining for 29 points.

“One of the hallmarks we’ve had the last few years is our effort,” head coach Clint Coles stated. “Last year, we had a tough time turning effort into results. Tonight, we did the stuff that we’ve worked on, and our kids stuck with what we’ve talked about and what we’ve worked on. I was just impressed with their fortitude to continue to fight and not just fight but fight in the correct way and do things that we worked on within our game-plan. That was the best part.”

Cuero has eight returners this season, as opposed to not having a single one last year. The experience was evident in the win over Bloomington.

‘Be more aggressive’

With Katie Crain sidelined due to an ankle injury suffered during the Lady Gobbler Holiday Tournament, Grace Andrews was moved into the starting lineup against Wimberley.

The Lady Gobblers jumped out to 12-2 first quarter lead before Wimberley battled back and kept the game close the rest of the way.

“They came out playing really aggressive defense, and we had talked about wanting to be more aggressive and try to create more turnovers,” head coach Amy Crain said. “We did that, so I was really pleased with that.”

Lady Gobbler Holiday Classic Tournament

Cuero High School’s Lady Gobbler basketball team hosted their first tournament at The Roost Dec. 29-30. Along with Cuero, Somerset, Industrial, Wimberley and Corpus Christi Veteran Memorial also participated. After losing by one point to Industrial, the Lady Gobblers came away with a 57-39 win over Somerset in game two.

“We were excited to do that,” head coach Amy Crain stated of being able to host the event. “We feel like our facilities, new school buildings and locker room are such a blessing. I know our girls have enjoyed them. It’s nice to share it with other schools. They’ve come in here and were wowed. I heard nothing but ‘wow this gym is so nice.’ It makes us feel good, but we were excited to host our first basketball tournament in it.”

Shaking off the rust may have played a part in their opening game against Industrial, with Cuero losing by one point.
