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.

Golf teams place; Magre, Keratsopoulos 1st medalist in Cameron

The Yoemen and Lady Yoe golf teams took home plenty of hardware from Monday and Tuesday’s golf tournaments from the Cameron Country Club. The ladies set the tone, finishing first as a team on Monday while the Yoemen kept the bar high with a second place finish on Tuesday.

 

LADY YOE

When play had ended on Monday, Cameron had finished tied with Rockdale with a score of 432. The tiebreaker favored Cameron with the fifth golfer having the lower score.

Alexis Magre led not only Cameron, but also the entire field on the day with a 90. The finish was two strokes better than Rockdale’s Annie Hasselbach for the number one spot.

“I was really excited, especially for Alexis,” said golf coach Pete Magre. “That was the first time she had got a medal and she ended up winning the tournament, which I thought was awesome.”

Yoe baseball finishes strong in Marion tournament

After dropping the first three games of pool play in last weekend’s Marion and Navarro tournament, the Yoemen closed on a high note by winning their final two games to finish with a 2-3 mark. Cameron now sits at 3-3 on the season. Below is a capsule from each contest.

 

Game 1: Navarro (L 3-0)
Cameron began tournament play with quite possibly the most talented team in the field with 4A Navarro, which entered the season #15 in TxHighSchoolBaseball.com’s preseason poll. The Yoemen fell behind 2-0 after one frame and could not get the offense going in a 3-0 loss. The Yoemen’s lone hit came in the top of the 4th, when Jason Llanas singled to right field. Navarro added on one run in the fifth before the game was called in the sixth due to the time limit. Anthony Layne and Ty Moore gave up only 1 earned run apiece on their time on the mount.

 

Game 2: Lago Vista (L 6-5)

Yoe’s late comeback falls short in bi-district loss to Marlin

Trialing 45-35 with just three minutes remaining in Tuesday’s bi-district matchup with the Marlin Bulldogs, Cameron was in a do or die situation with the continuation of the season on the line. The next two and a half minutes are what the fans in maroon and grey were looking for, as the Yoemen had stormed all the way back to take a 47-45 lead with just 33.75 seconds remaining on the clock. However, it was the Bulldogs that recovered late with free throws in a 51-48 victory.

 

“That sums up our season right there,” said Yoe head coach Ed Glendening. “You can’t ask our kids to play harder. They gave total effort. We were never out of the game and we were never out of it.”

 

The loss ends the Yoemen’s season at 22-12. The Bulldogs, 16-10, now advance to the area round of the playoffs to take on the Malakoff Tigers.

Yoemen take advantage of early miscues in rout of Connally

In any sport it’s important to take advantage of the other team’s miscues. On Monday, Yoe baseball did that and more in a 8-0 season opening victory over the Connally Cadets.

After starting pitcher Jason Llanas retired the side in the top of the first, Cameron’s first three batters of 2017 reached base via the error. The Yoemen capitalized by pushing across four runs to build all the momentum needed to move to 1-0.

“Our guys have been working hard the last two weeks,” said Yoe head coach John Broussard. “We had a big first inning and capitalized on some errors and stole the momentum right off the bat and we didn’t let off. It was a complete game and it was the first complete game I have seen these guys play. I am excited.”

Remembering two more ex-Yoemen basketball coaches

Everybody knows Cameron is known for being a football town, but every once in awhile, a great coach would lead the Yoemen to some memories on the hardwood court. Like to remember a couple of them now.

The first is Bill Krueger, who started his career here at Yoe High in 1957-58. He came here straight out of Southwest Texas State, where he was a star player for the Bobcats. He had an abundance of great athletes to work with. They had just completed a tremendous 7-3 season, losing only to Killeen (10-1) Brenham (11-1), and a hard fought game in Stephenville (6-0), which I have said before was the coldest game I ever attended.

The team managed only a 9-16 record and were led by Ray Green (SMU football), Gene Hillman (Baylor football), Bobby Elliott, Warren Rinn (Del Mar junior college football) and Arthur (Monk) Marek.
