Osorio finishes second, girls JV captures championship at Florence cross country meet

As district quickly approaches, the Yoemen cross country teams continue to show improvement.  Jose Osorio continues to shine for the Yoemen, finishing in second place (19:06.18) in a field of 45 runners.  Additionally, the JV girls teams captured the championship with three runners finishing in the top five.  

 

“Jose Osorio ran a good 2nd,” said Yoemen head coach Dale Keen.  “The girls picked it up good and won JV division.  Frances Sims was 2nd.”

 

Osorio was just seconds behind the overall winner of the event, Andrew Holt (18:44.20) of Lago Vista.  

 

Sims finished in second overall with a time of 15:42.06.  Patience Adcock was right behind her in third at 17:09.15.  Rosa Valles (5th, 17:54.58), Harlie Halpain (9th, 18:47.57), McKenzie Salicas (13th, 23:02.26) and Ana Bowman (14th, 24:32.72) also ran for the girls JV.

Lady Yoe host dig pink game

District play continued for the Lady Yoe last week.  Cameron was on the road at Franklin on Friday to wrap up the first half of 20-3A action before returning home on Tuesday to host Rogers in the big Dink Pink game.

 

Last year, C.H. Yoe High School was recognized by Side-Out as one of top fundraising schools for breast cancer research.  According to the organization, thousands of volleyball players, coaches, and families in all 50 states join together to participate in the program.   

 

Cameron had raised $34,000 from 2010 up to 2014.  The events have gotten bigger every year, and in 2015 the Lady Yoe raised $14,555 for cancer research, good enough for fifth in the country.  

 

The top five winners from last year:

Yoemen not looking past Jarrell

Last week, everyone’s attention was fully on the Cameron vs. Franklin district showdown.  Many statewide publications featured it as one of the the top games in the state, and it lived up to the billing as the Yoemen pulled out a dramatic 42-38 win to improve to 2-0 in 20-3A play.  

 

This week will be somewhat of a different storyline.  Jarrell has only won one ball game so far this year and has struggled out of the gate in 10-3A, failing to win a game in two attempts.   

 

“Hopefully our kids come out and take a step forward and not a step back,” said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  “We don’t feel you stay the same.  You are either getting better or getting worse.  We want to come out this week and work hard like we have the past two weeks and continue to get better.”

Week 7 Football Outlook

Jarrell (1-5/0-2) Vs. Cameron Yoe (5-1/2-0)

The Yoemen are coming off of an emotional 42-38 victory over a top five Franklin team in week six.  Jarrell is on the opposite end of the spectrum, winning just one game this season.  Sometimes you expect a let down in games of this nature, but Cameron does not want to go into the big Battle of the Bell game with a sluggish performance.  There is potential to have an ample amount of success on each side of the ball.  The biggest key at this point is to work on improving the all-around game and staying healthy.

History of Yoe Football (2013)

Preseason 2013 had the defending champion Yoemen ranked number two behind Newton, even though the Yoemen had knocked the Eagles out of the playoffs the previous year (39-22) in the semis.  The Yoemen had a slogan “back to back” and they held true to that all year long.  The season started at Yoe Field with another come from behind victory over Waco Connally (37-34).  Lexington came to Yoe field next, and the Yoemen skunked them (47-0).  Next was a visit across Little River to take on the 3A Rockdale Tigers.  It was a back and forth game for a while, but Jason Kopriva hit WR Colton Shuffield with two trick play long passes to put the game away (51-33).

Yoemen top Franklin in battle of heavyweights

 

 

It was a matchup that everyone had looked forward to before the season ever kicked off.  Both Cameron and Franklin had played for state championships a year ago, and now they were in the same district.  

 

An overflow crowd for both fan bases got their money's worth on Friday night from Hedrick Field as the Yoemen built a 42-22 lead in the second half before holding off a late surge from the Lions to win, 42-38.  

 

Franklin (5-1/1-1), which is known for the powerful slot-t ground attack, ended the night with 336 yards rushing.  However, it was the Yoemen's (5-1/2-0) 360 yards through the air that proved to be the difference in an offensive shootout.  

 

"Overall, I am very proud of the team," said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  "We did what we needed to in order to win the ball game."

District Showdown: Cameron Yoemen Vs. Franklin Lions

Before a season starts, there are games that every fan base has circled.  Whether you are a Yoemen or Lions fan, this is one of the games you would have had marked down.  Cameron has played for and won multiple state championships while Franklin has been deep in the playoffs year in and year out.    

 

Franklin (5-0/1-0) has had a very strong start to their 2016 campaign, going 4-0 in non-district play.  In those four contests, Franklin had victories over Navasota (38-22), Caldwell (52-13), Lorena (34-21) and Waco Connally (48-42).  The Lions opened up 10-3A action with a dominating 42-14 win over the Troy Trojans.

Lady Yoe win first district match

The past few weeks have been tough for the Lady Yoe.  Players have been in and out of the lineup with injuries and that has translated to a 0-4 start in district 20-3A play.  On Friday, the ladies picked up some confidence in a victory over the Hearne Lady Eagles, 3-1.  Cameron traveled to Academy on Tuesday, but fell in straight sets.

 

Hearne

Serving was a big reason why the Lady Yoe picked up their first district win of the year.  The ladies were able to limit mistakes and got over 24 aces in the match.   

 

Darci Denio and Kenzie Wimmer each have six aces each while Gracen Dach (five) and Jazmin Vaculin (five) both served well for Cameron.

 

The match was tied at 1-1 before the ladies easily put the match away with a 25-8 win in set number three followed up by a 25-12 win in set number four.

Cross country continues to show improvement

There were a lot of new faces on the Yoe cross country team to begin the season.  Since that point, Coach Dale Keen and his squads have been able to attend three meets.  There has been improvement week from week, and Cameron had their best finish yet this past weekend at Rogers.

 

“We ran much better in Rogers,” said Keen.  “Jose Osorio was seventh on varsity and should be runner of the week.  Frances Sims was the only girl to run varsity and was 43rd.  I thought she did well to do that in her first varsity race.”

 

Osorio has been the top runner for the Yoemen this year and posted his top performance of the season with a time of 17:39.3.  That was just over a minute behind the leader, Ivan Solis (16:12.9) of McGregor.

 

Rico Bolivar finished in 49th with a time of 20:02.9.  Eric came in 77th with a 23:47.3 mark.
