Yoe soccer closes out 2017

This past week, both the Lady Yoe and Yoemen soccer programs played their final two matches of the year.  Cameron hosted Gonzales on Friday and Taylor on Tuesday in the two final games in 26-4A district action. 

 

Yoemen

On Friday, the Yoemen battled every moment of the game, but district champ Gonzales flexed their muscles down stretch in a 13-0 loss. 

 

“They are going to be our district champion and I have a feeling they are going to be playing for a while,” said Yoemen head coach Kevin Webb.  “They have about 9 or 10 seniors that have stuck together over four years, and now they are reaping the benefits of that.  That is something I want our program to have.  With our large freshmen class it is something to talk about and shoot for.”

 

Monday was the final game for three Yoe seniors in a 4-0 loss to Taylor.  “They are three totally different types of kids,” said Webb.

Lady Yoe dominate Hearne to pick up first 20-3A win

Hearne

Sometimes a confidence boost is just what a team needs to begin a winning streak.  On Friday from the Mark Humble Softball Complex, Cameron did just about everything right in a 15-0 thrashing of Hearne in a 4-inning run rule.  

 

“We were disciplined at the plate, got some hits and did what we needed to do to get the win,” said head coach Abe Vargas.   “I told the ladies we needed to get some work out of this game.  We went four innings and that was good for our pitchers. 

 

Cameron used two pitchers in the game, with Maddy Humble going the first three, giving up no hits, walking none and striking out three.  Madison Brunson relieved Humble in the fourth and gave up no hits and struck out one.  Together, the combo gave up no hits, walked none and struck out four in the perfect game bid. 

 

More importantly, Cameron (1-2) picked up their first district win while keeping Hearne (0-3) winless in 20-3A play.

Yoe clip Franklin to improve to 2-0 in 20-3A

Winning is the name of the game, and since February 25 that is all the Yoemen have been doing. On Tuesday from The Yards of Cameron, the win streak was extended to nine, and more importantly to two in 20-3A, with a 5-4 win over Franklin. 

 

If you had just seen the first three innings of the game, it appeared as if we were headed towards an offensive shootout, with both teams scoring all of their runs in the early going. However, both pitching staffs settled in from that point on and never allowed a run the cross home plate.   

 

“I felt like we wasted away a few opportunities with our small ball,” said Yoe coach John Broussard.  “But, our guys stayed in the game and we played good defense and our pitcher threw strikes and gave us a chance to win today.  That is what it’s all about.”

Yoe lifters compete at regionals

The past two weeks, Cameron had lifters from both the boys and girls side compete at the regional level. On March 4, two Lady Yoe lifters traveled to Academy for the regional meet.  Selene Vargas was 10th in the 114-class with 605 pounds and Daejanay Bell was 6th in the 259-class with 800 total pounds. On March 9, the four Yoemen traveled over to west for the region II division III meet.  Garrett Roeder was 11th in the 198-class with 1,115 pounds lifted, Nico Vargas was 10th in the 220-class with 1,245 pounds, Doratis Lewis came in 6th in the 275-class with 1,340 pounds, and Adrian Lewis was 6th in the super heavyweight division with 1,360 pounds. Neither squad had a lifter move on to state, but a total six different lifters made it regionals.

Kostroun signs preferred walk-on with Incarnate Word

This past week, Noah Kostroun added to the already long list of Yoe seniors committed to play at the next level.  Kostroun signed as a preferred walk-on to play football for Incarnate Word University.

“What Incarnate Word like about him was his athleticism,” said athletic director and head football coach Tommy Brashear.  “He has good size and a good build to him.  They liked that he was a deep snapper.  He did that for us the last two years and was very solid for us.  I don’t remember him having any bad snaps on specials teams.  That is huge because sometimes you take it for granted.”

In addition to his role as deep snapper, Kostroun was a mainstay for the Yoemen at defensive line the past two seasons.  In his junior season, Kostroun totaled 56 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks.  This past year, the senior had 54 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 7 sacks. 

Wherever IWU decides to use Kostroun, Brashear feels he is going to add value.

Yoe golf places 5th in Brenham

Last Thursday, the Yoe golfers competed in quite possibly their toughest tournament of the regular season on the road at Brenham.  Cameron was up against a majority of teams from larger classifications, but held their own with a fifth place finish and a team total of 366 on the day. 

In total there were four 3A schools and one private school, with the rest being 4A or larger competition.  The Yoemen were just 15 strokes behind 3rd place Rockdale (351).  Bellville tied Brenham at the top of the standings at 334.

Nikolas Keratsopoulos won his second tournament in a row with a 75.  The finish was two strokes better than Bruceville-Eddy’s Preston McGinty.  Keratsopoulos and McGinty ended in a three-way tie for second at state last year. 

Freshmen Kobe Young has shown strong improvement throughout the year and ended Thursday with an 89, which was good enough for a tie at the 21st spot.  Young shot a 92 last week in the Cameron tournament.

Yoemen perfect in Franklin; jump 4 spots in rankings

After jumping into the state’s top 25 rankings two weeks ago, the Yoemen proved their staying power by going a perfect 3-0-1 in the Franklin tournament this past weekend.  The Yoemen navigated their way through a field of 30 teams all the way to the championship game against number one Lago Vista.  Cameron led that contest 4-3 in the bottom of the fourth before heavy showers forced the game to be called.

Cameron picked up wins over Fairfield, College Station JV and Brazos Christian and advanced on a tiebreaker against Navasota to the championship game.  On Monday, the Yoemen were rewarded by an advancement in the rankings, moving from number 24 up to number 20.  Other local teams ranked in TxHighSchoolBaseball.com’s 3A rankings include Lago Vista (1), West (6), Troy (8), Groesbeck (14), Georgetown Gateway Prep (19), Clifton (21) and Rogers (22). 

Below is a recap from each of the games in Franklin.

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.”

Riesel (L 17-3)

In the opening game of the tournament, Cameron gave up multiple runs in the first four innings, including nine in the fourth in a 17-3 loss to Riesel.

Cameron scored one run in the second and two runs in the third. Kenzie Wimmer and Karla Martinez each had an RBI. Molly Oges and Alexis Vargas had the two hits for Cameron.
