Shock waves: Cuero golfers disappointed, but understanding

By Robert Proctor

District golf for Cuero High School was scheduled for last week, March 30-31, but like most events around the world, it was canceled due to the outbreak of COVID-19. As of now, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) is planning to resume activities May 4, but uncertainty looms each day.

In her first year as Cuero’s head golf coach, Amy Crain could never imagine the cancellation or even suspension of a season. Her thoughts, though, are with her athletes, who may have lost their season.

“I was disappointed for the athletes, parents and coaches knowing that opportunities to compete, coach and watch were no longer going to be there for an uncertain period of time,” she said.

Sophie Seidel, who’s in her last year of high school, couldn’t believe the decision was made to at least postpone their season, but it also makes sense to her.

“It made me realize how much this pandemic has escalated,” Seidel stated. “I was shocked but understanding with this safety precaution taken.”

Junior Clayre Pullin had a similar reaction as Seidel. Her thoughts were with her teammates.

“My reaction to the suspension was a shock at first and a little upset for all the sports that go on in the spring,” Pullin said. “I was upset that I wasn’t going to be able to watch my friends play their last game on the field or see them run for the last time on track. I was very upset for them.”
