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.

Yoemen rally to beat Lexington, fall late in heavyweight battle with Rogers

Lexington

The Cameron Yoemen ran their win streak to 10 games in a row in dramatic fashion by scoring eight runs in the final three innings of a 8-4 win over Lexington last Thursday.

 

Things were not looking good early as Lexington jumped on Cameron with 1 in the first and 3 in the second to take a 4-0 lead. That advantage held up until 2 Yoemen runs in the fifth, 2 in the sixth and 4 in the seventh completed the comeback.

 

“We just told them to relax and focus,” said head baseball coach John Broussard on his message to the team on falling behind early. “They had a guy throwing that was keeping us off-balance up there. We told them to be real selective. You might get one pitch and you need to square it up. When we scored the two in the fifth, it kind of energized us and got us motivated.”

8-run 4th propels Lexington over Lady Yoe

For the first three innings of last Wednesday’s spring break contest with Lexington, we had a game that could have went either way. That was before the Lady Eagles broke things wide open in the fourth inning with eight runs in a 11-0 victory over the Lady Yoe.

 

Cameron saw their biggest momentum swing in the bottom of the first when starting pitcher Madison Brunson caught a line drive right back at her. The freshmen alertly doubled off the runner at second base.

 

The only earned runs against Brunson came via the long ball, as Kylie Hobbs hit one out in the first, followed by a Kacie Johnson home run in the third to extend the lead up to 3-0.

 

However, in that same third, Brunson suffered a hand injury and was forced to leave the circle.

 

“She pitched pretty well and then she got hit in the hand and she got hurt and we had to take her out and that made it tough for us,” said Lady Yoe head coach Abe Vargas.

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.
