We still have a lot of things to work on, but it’s nice to be rolling in that direction heading into district.”

Yoe bands earns sweepstakes awards at UIL contest

Whenever you hear Yoe High Band and competition in the same sentence, all you have to do is look at the trophy case to see what the expectations are surrounding the program.

 

At last week's UIL concert and sight-reading contest, the longstanding tradition of excellence was upheld as both the junior varsity and varsity level bands captured sweepstakes awards. Both bands received one-division ratings in the concert and sight-reading portions of the contest.

 

“I couldn't be more proud of the kids,” said director of bands Craig George following the contest. “This is why we work so hard the entire course of the year.”

 

The band competed in two different UIL events this year. The first came back in the fall when the band received straight ones from the marching band competition at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. Now, the band has accomplished its ultimate goal.

Yoe soccer looks to close out season on high note

Just two weeks of play remain in 2017 for the Yoe soccer programs. There have been high’s and low’s over the past two months, but both teams look to close out the season on a positive trend.

On Friday, Cameron hosted Smithville in 26-4A action from Yoe Field. In the first match, the Yoemen fell behind early, 4-0, and after the break gave up 4 more goals in an 8-0 loss.

“We’ve got some injuries and it’s late in the year and that is hurting us,” said head coach Kevin Webb. “It seems like the people that are going through those injury problems are some of our most valuable people. We at least are getting some experience with our younger guys. They are getting in there and are playing hard like Yoemen and I could not be more proud of them.”

Cameron has yet to win a 26-4A district match at 0-7, but the experienced gained throughout the final four matches of the season should prove to be beneficial.

Kruse signs with Texas Lutheran University

On Feb. 17, the total number of Yoe High athletes signed to play at the next level went to four as Savannah Kruse officially signed with Texas Lutheran to play volleyball.

Kruse has been one of the main threats for Cameron the past two years and wrapped up her career as a first team all-district selection.

“I voted for her as MVP,” said Lady Yoe volleyball coach Kamol Nohe. ‘She is one of those players that has passion to play. She did everything I asked her to do. I needed her to do certain things that were awkward and maybe different than what she was used to, and she didn’t hesitate. She was ready to perform up to her best.”

Though Nohe has only worked with Kruse for one year, he feels the soon-to-be Lucky will be successful at the next level.
