I just wanted to take a moment to recognize the hard work and dedication that these two young men have shown. They spent the last 4 years in our program and are a wonderful example of what a good Pirate can be! We relied heavily on Kody and Robey this year and designed most of our offense to run behind them. They also anchored our defensive line as well on important short-yardage plays.
The girls traveled to Poth Friday night, January 15th, into a packed house with a gym full of State Titles. Friday was the first time in the seven years I have coached for Lytle that we have played basketball in their gym. From the beginning emotions and energy were on display. The first quarter ended and it was 17-17, in the second quarter our defense took over and put us up 31-22 at the half. However, in the third and fourth the score bounced back and forth. We forced some outside shots that turned into some points for Poth in transition. With 11 seconds left in the game I used my last timeout.
Yesterday, Mr. Mumme was delighted and moved to tears to find your 80+ messages of encouragement on the banner we hung on his gate. In addition to the banner surprise, a few of our seniors sent him a Senior Sweatshirt and a t-shirt that reads, "I will teach you here or there, I will teach you ANYWHERE! #stillteaching." The timing was good. Mr. Mumme had just experienced one of the roughest weeks of treatment so far, and he still welcomes all the positive thoughts and prayers you are willing to send his way.
Last night, January 12th, the boys took on a Karnes City team that was tough and relentless all night long. The Pirates ended up winning but had to earn every basket. With 18 lead changes in the game, it was a defensive battle from the tip off. With both teams battling on both sides of the ball, Karnes City took a 19-18 lead into the half. The Pirates had to turn up the full court press in the fourth quarter which lead to 10 steals and 8 points by the Pirates to help win the game down the stretch. Jordan Balderaz led the Pirates with 16 points and 12 rebounds to finish off the night. Matt Sanchez who hadn't played since the holiday break due to an injury, hit two key three pointers in the fourth quarter to extend the lead and finished with 12 points off the bench. Senior Carson Aldridge had three key steals in the fourth quarter that ignited the 10-2 run in the final minutes for the win. Go Pirates!
