Lady Yoe can’t finish off Jarrell at home

For a good portion of the 20-3A schedule, the Lady Yoe softball team has been in a majority of their games, but have not found a way to win them. On Tuesday night, it was defensive miscues that reared its ugly head in a 9-8 loss to the Lady Cougars of Jarrell.

 

Cameron nearly overcame errors with offensive production. In total, the ladies drew nine walks and hit two home runs. However, the five errors on defense was just too much to overcome on this night.

 

“A lot of if was inflicted to ourselves,” said Lady Yoe head coach Abe Vargas. “Yes, they put the ball in play, but we hurt ourselves defensively. We got behind and when you try to come back after being down like that, it’s tough. It doesn't matter who we’re playing.”

Offensive woes continue for Lady Yoe in loss to Rockdale

Ever since a convincing 15-0 run-rule win over Hearne on March 10, it has been a struggle for the Lady Yoe to get back in the win column. Since that point, the ladies had dropped three consecutive district contests to Lexington, Franklin, and Rogers, and had only scored a total of 2 runs in those games.

 

Rockdale

Cameron had potentially their top opportunity to turn things around this past Friday on the road at Rockdale. Both the Lady Yoe and Lady Tigers sat at 1-5 in district and were in search of a much needed win.

 

After having the game moved to Rockdale due to poor field conditions in Cameron, the Lady Tigers took advantage of home field advantage in a 6-2 win. Cameron was held scoreless throughout the first six frames and only had two hits in the contest.

Yoe finishes first half of 20-3A at 5-1

The best way to end a winning streak is to begin another one. That is what exactly the Yoemen did this past week by picking up two consecutive wins over Rockdale (7-2) and Academy (8-0) to move to 5-1 in 20-3A play. Cameron has now won 13 out of their last 15 games overall with one tie in the mix.

 

Rockdale

Cameron used a complete effort in all three phases of the game in a 7-2 victory over Milam County rival Rockdale on Friday night from The Yards of Cameron.

 

The win improved Cameron to 4-1 in 20-3A and 13-4-1 overall while Rockdale dropped to 6-7-1 and 0-4.

 

“It's always big to get a district win whenever you can get it,” said Yoemen head coach John Broussard. “I thought our team rebounded well after a good game with Rogers that we fell short on. I thought we came out and had some good at-bats for the most part and generated some runs early.”

Yoe baseball off to hot start

On Monday, the Cameron Yoemen moved up a few more spots to number 18 in TxHighSchoolBaseball.com’s 3A statewide rankings. Cameron, which came into this week’s action at 12-3-1 overall and 3-0 in 20-3A play, had a big time matchup with the Rogers Eagles on Tuesday - another team included in the rankings at number 20.

 

The hot start is the best the Yoemen have had since the 2011 season. That year saw Cameron win their first and only state championship in baseball. With that said, when you see impressive records, you generally have teams that find ways to win games as opposed to losing them.

Hill signs with McLennan Community College

On Monday, the already long list of Yoe High seniors signed to play at the next level grew again as Daniella Hill signed her letter of intent to play softball for McLennan Community College.

 

Hill is the lone senior on this year’s softball team, and according to Lady Yoe head coach Abe Vargas, she has been an ideal player you look for in your program.

 

“Just watching how she plays and her work ethic, it’s good. She works and she wants to get better. She loves the game and enjoys playing. You can tell the passion she has for the game. I think she is going to be able to carry that over at MCC and she will continue to improve on her game and get better. MCC is getting someone that will help their program.”

 

Though Vargas has only coached Hill for two years now, he sees how much she has improved and what she brings to the plate.
