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.



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.  



Yoemen capture 700th all-time victory over McGregor


It’s not always how you start, but it’s how you finish.  That has been a trademark for the Yoemen football program over the past several years.  


The tradition carried over in Friday night’s district opener, as the Yoemen went on a 30-6 run in the final two quarters of play to win 44-20 over the McGregor Bulldogs.  The win was also the Yoemen’s 700th in program history.  Only seven other teams (all classifications) have ever accomplished the feat.


“It’s special for me to be the one that is coaching the 700th win, but this goes out to Yoemen from years back and ones in the future as well,” said Yoe head coach Tommy Brashear.  “This is a great place and I am very honored to be a part of it.”

Caldwell Cross Country Results

The Yoemen and Lady Yoe Cross Country runners were both back in action this back weekend at the Caldwell Invitational.  Cameron’s Jose Osorio once again highlighted the boys with a 19th place finish out of 67 runners. 


“We ran a little better this week,” said Yoe cross country coach Dale Keen.   “Jose Osorio finished 19th in a strong field of runners.  Rico Bolivar didn't perform like he usually does but he was quite sick.  Eric Rojas finished much better this time.”


Rojas finished with a time of 25:02 with Bolivar not far behind at 25:14.   For the JV, Robbie Pfiel was 28th of of 47 runners with a time of 22:58.  Joel Uvalle also ran and finished at the 26:09 mark. 


The girls are still working in the junior varsity division, but did show signs of improvement from week one to week two. 



Lady Yoe show improvement, but drop two more district contests














The start of district 20-3A play has not gone quite the way the Lady Yoe would have liked.  Cameron had lost both of their matches to Rogers and Jarrell and were winless headed into the second week of district action.  


Though it was not necessarily a win, Coach Kamol Nohe and the Lady Yoe (0-3) did take a set off of Lexington (3-0) in Friday’s 3-1 loss. 


Battling heavy adversity after falling in the opening two sets (13-25, 19-25), Cameron dug deep to grind out a 25-22 victory in set number three.  Lexington went on to take set number four (14-25) and the match. 


Savannah Kruse continues to lead the Cameron offensive attack, this time totalling six kills.  Darci Deni had 11 of the Lady Yoe’s 16 assists. 


Marly Spink (4), Daiya Braziel (2) and Kenize Wimmer (2) were other top attackers for Cameron. 


Yoemen aiming to join elite company














Football is the most popular sport in the United States of America.  From the National Football League to college and down to high school football, fans of the game are always eager to watch their favorite team. 


Football, along with may other things, is bigger in Texas.  In Cameron, it’s taken to another level.   


When the Yoemen step on the field this Friday night, they will not only be going for a district opening win, but they will also be vying for the 700th victory in program history.  That is a mark only six other schools from every classification in the state have eclipsed.  


“It just shows what Cameron has been in the past, what Cameron is, and what Cameron will be in the future,” said first-year Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.



Week 5 Football Outlook










McGregor (2-2) Vs. Cameron Yoe (3-1)

This is a big week for the Cameron Yoemen as district 10-3A play begins.  McGregor has somewhat of a deceiving record at 2-2.  The Bulldogs have loses to Mart and Sunnyvale, both of which are ranked inside of the top ten of their respective divisions.... 


Bryan St. Joseph (1-3) Vs. Milano (0-4)

Bremond (4-0) Vs. Thorndale (1-3)

Buckholts (1-1) Vs. Waco Parkview Christian (1-2)

Franklin (4-0) Vs. Troy (2-2)

Jarrell (1-3) Vs. Academy (3-1)

Rogers (1-3) Vs. Rockdale (2-1)

Grandview (4-0) Vs. Sunnyvale (4-0)

Hallettsville (4-0) Vs. Yoakum (2-2)



Yoemen open district with always-solid McGregor

When district realignment came out back in February, it was known that 10-3A was going to be taken up a notch in difficulty with the additions of some traditionally tough teams.  This week, the Yoemen (3-1) will be opening up 10-3A play by hosting one of those teams - the McGregor Bulldogs.  


McGregor comes into this game with a 2-2 record, but that could be somewhat deceiving based on the strength of schedule.  


"McGregor is 2-2, but they have played a pretty good schedule themselves," said Yoe head coach Tommy Brashear.  "They started out with Groesbeck and beat them pretty well, then they lost to Sunnyvale, which is a highly ranked 3A team.  They also lost to Mart who always has a good team and they have a good program over there."



Cross country runners compete at Lexington

After several weeks of preparation, the Yoemen and Lady Yoe cross country teams began their season on Saturday at the Lexington Invitational.


Though it’s early, Cameron did find some success as two boy’s varsity runners finished inside of the top ten while two JV girls placed within the top ten.


“We ran most of our people in JV divisions as we are in such a developing stage that we would have destroyed mentally to run varsity,” said Yoe head cross country coach Dale Keen.  “At some point we will have to but right now we just need to try and have some success.”


All squads will be back on the road this Saturday at Caldwell.
