Big inning costs Lady Yoe in loss to Rogers

Kenzie Wimmer continued her effort with the long ball, but it was not enough as the Lady Yoe fell to Rogers on Tuesday night, 12-2.  Wimmer hit a solo homer in the bottom of the first inning to put Cameron up 1-0, but Rogers used a big 5-run 4th and a 6-run 7th to pull away from the Lady Yoe.  

Cameron held the 1-0 lead until the third when clean-up batter Shelby Mitchell hit one over the center field fence to tie the game.  

Rogers sent 10 to the plate in the 4th to create separation at 6-1.  Wimmer would homer once again in the bottom of the 4th, but Cameron could not produce any other type of offense in the loss.  

Madison Brunson tossed 4.1 innings, giving up 8 hits, 4 runs and struck out 3 batters.  Alejandra Ibarra also pitched 2.2 innings and gave up 5 hits, 3 earned runs and walked 3.  

With the loss, Cameron drops to 2-4 in 20-3A.  Rogers, the number 13 team in the state, improves to 5-1.

Yoe hires Altair Rice AD as next offensive coordinator

Cameron made a big splash hire on Monday when it was announced that current Altair Rice athletic director and head football coach Gary Zeinert was selected to be Cameron’s next offensive coordinator.  Zeinert has been a head coach for a total of 7 years, including the past 5 at Altair Rice.  Zeinert will be replacing outgoing offensive coordinator Abraham Vargas, which last month took a head job at Runge.  We will have full reaction from both Yoe athletic director Tommy Brashear and Zeinert in next week’s edition of sports.

It was a tournament that featured primarily 5A and 6A schools, but the Lady Yoe golfers managed to hold their own by finishing in eighth out of 16 competing teams in Burnet.

Yoe picks up first 20-3A win

Spring break was not kind to the Yoemen, which went 0-2, including a loss to Lexington on Thursday, 10-5.  

Cameron’s offense had 11 hits but left the bases loaded on three occasions.  The defense was there with no errors, but Lexington pounded out 14 hits and scored in the first five innings to create a 10-3 lead which was too much to overcome.  

Lexington’s top of the order did most of the damage in the contest, and they got the scoring going in the first as a Meuth double, Justice single and Hess single plated one run to give the Eagles the early 1-0 lead.  

Collectively, the top four in the Lexington lineup totalled 10 of the 14 hits. 

Down 4-0 in the 2nd, Bryce Brashear got the Yoemen on the scoreboard by lining a single to the pitcher Hess, scoring Anthony Layne from third base.

Yoe advances to semifinals in Franklin, falls hard to Lions in district

Entering their final tournament of the season, Cameron was in need of a little confidence boost before the long stretch of 20-3A games. The Yoemen had gone winless in their own tournament and had fallen to Jarrell in the district opener.

 

In 2017, Cameron, which was ranked inside the top 25 at the time, managed to go undefeated in the Franklin tournament before having the championship versus number one Lago Vista called off in the fourth inning due to weather.

 

The Yoemen fell just one-short of matching that finish in 2018, advancing to the semifinals of the 32-team bracket before falling to #13 Salado in dramatic fashion, 9-8.

Both soccer team makes playoffs for first time in program history

The playoffs are the goal for every team once they begin district play. The Yoe and Lady Yoe soccer teams are going to get to experience just what that feel like, as both teams have advanced to the postseason for the first time in program history.

 

Despite falling to Gateway Prep on the road Friday, 3-0, the Lady Yoe simply needed Jarrell to lose to Salado, and they did. The Lady Yoe finished 25-4A with a 3-7 record and will advance as the fourth place team. Playoff details have not been released yet, but the bi-district round is not until March 29-31.

 

The boys also did not have much drama in advancing to the postseason. Cameron was off the final game due to Gateway Prep not having a boys team. The Yoemen finished 2-6 in 25-4A and will also be advancing as the fourth seed out of the district. Playoff details are still to be determined.

Softball splits games with Lexington, Franklin

The Lady Yoe arguably had the roughest opening schedule of any team in 20-3A, having to begin play with defending state champ Academy in addition to games with playoff hopefuls Jarrell and Lexington.  

 

Cameron fell to hard to both Academy (16-1) and Jarrell (11-1), but did get in the win column without having to play a game when Hearne had to forfeit due to not having enough players to field a squad.  

 

Lexington

Things did not get better in games played on Monday night as Lexington outhit Cameron 19-2, which produced a lopsided 16-1 final score after 5 innings.  

 

Kylie Hobbs was big for Lexington all night, finishing 3-5 from the plate with 1 double, 2 home runs, and 6 total runs driven in.  

 

The first homer was a 3-run shot in the first before the Lady Eagles added one more to go up 4-0.

Yoe soccer drops pair; Lady yoe clinch playoff spot

Despite falling to both Academy on Friday and Salado on Tuesday, Yoe soccer still has an opportunity to advance into the postseason for the first time in school history.  

After only falling 1-0 on their first meeting, the Yoemen could not keep pace the second go-around in a 5-0 loss to Academy.  The overall shots on goal saw Academy only hold a slight edge at 16-15, but Cameron simply could not convert any shot attempts. 

At the 35-minute mark of the first half, Yoe goalie Chandler Barton saved an on-goal shot to keep the match scoreless, but an ensuing corner kick led to the first goal.  

Cameron had one of their best opportunities to score just minutes later when Henry Martinez got behind defenders, but was just one step too slow as the Bees goaltender collected the ball and ended the threat.  

At the 30-minute mark the same situation presented itself for Diego Martinez, but he also was not able to get off an attempt.

Yoe struggles in Cameron tourney

The Cameron tournament is generally regarded as one of the toughest week two tournaments around the state.  The host team found the competition level to be stout in 2018, going 0-2-1 over three days of play. 

Gateway Prep (4-0) and Clifton (2-0-1) both went undefeated in the tournament.  

 

Caldwell (L 6-4)

The Yoemen fell behind Caldwell in game one 4-0, and could not complete a comeback in a 6-4 loss.  

Cameron will look back at defensive miscues in the defeat, as only two of the six runs were earned through the six innings. 

The Hornets got one of their earned runs in the top of the first when Ethan Blinka drove a double to left fielder Kadrian Hammond.  Three more would be added in the top of the fourth.
