Yoe opens 20-3A play with dramatic win over Jarrell

20-3A has always been regarded as one of the better baseball districts across Central Texas and the entire state. With the deep amount of quality teams, each and every game tends to go down to the wire. We got one of those ball games on Tuesday night at the Yards of Cameron as the Yoemen won in walk-off fashion against the Jarrell Cougars, 2-1.

 

The storyline of the district opener was both pitchers each going the distance. Both Jason Llanas of Cameron (7-3, 1-0) (7 IP, 3 H, 1 R 0 ER, 6 K) and Forrest Bell of Jarrell (7-2, 0-1) (6.1 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 8 B) both had outstanding pitching lines.

 

“I thought Jarrell’s guy did a great job tonight,” said Yoe head baseball coach John Broussard. “He threw three pitches for strikes and he kept us off balance and did a great job. I thought Llanas matched him just as well. They scratched one early and I’m proud of our guys for fighting back and ended up getting the win in the last inning.”

A look back at the Yoe assistants

Always like to remember assistant coaches over the years. Most were just passing through, but you probably know Cameron stayed on their mind throughout their career. You know “Once a Yoemen, Always a Yoemen”.

 

I picked a twelve-year period starting with head coaches Hal Stanislaw (68-71), followed by Ed Cauley (72-76), and Max Graham (77-79). Hal and Ed still reside in Cameron while Max came with Cauley as his top assistant for five years before taking over when Ed took the Lufkin job. After his three good head coaching years, he rejoined Cauley at Lufkin.

 

My last article two weeks ago highlighted Ron Murdock’s great four years leading the Yoe roundball to great results, but he also served Stanislaw as JV coach (2 years) and freshmen (1 year) with better than average success on the gridiron.

There are a lot of positives surrounding the Yoe baseball program at the moment. The Yoemen went a perfect 3-0 in the first annual Tournament of Champions hosted by both Cameron and Rogers. In addition, Cameron entered TxHighSchoolBaseball.com’s top 25 rankings released on Monday. Cameron (6-3) is tied for 24th in 3A ball with Rogers (4-2-1) and Clifton (7-2).

 

Tournament Play

After finishing 2-3 in the Marion tournament the previous week, the Yoemen rebounded with wins over Gatesville, Giddings and Burnet in their own tournament.

 

“I think our guys bounced back big time from last weekend,” said Yoe head baseball coach John Broussard after the wins. “We didn’t particularly play great, and we made a lot of strides. 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.
