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.

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.
