  • 9-22-2023 7th Grade Football vs Pearsall

    Yesterday, September 21, 2023, the 7th Grade football team hosted the Pearsall Mavericks. The Mavericks started the game with an 11-minute drive for a touchdown. In Junior High games, that means that we first touched the ball with 3 minutes left in the half. It took us 12 seconds to score our first touchdown as Burl Jopling ran back the kickoff behind some great blocking. The rest of the game was a back-and-forth struggle. The intensity on the field was unique for a 7th grade contest. The game ended in a tie. Both schools respected each other. This was evident from the conversations I heard as they were shaking hands after the game. We are off this week. We’ll be hosting the Poteet Aggies on October 5, 2023.

  • 9-22-2023 8th Grade Football vs Pearsall

    A few mishaps by our secondary put us in a tough spot, but outstanding defensive play by Michael Scotello kept the game close. AJ Cantu and Angel De La Rosa shined like the North Star and put on a running display that would even make Walter Payton proud.

  • 9-15-2023 8th Grade Football Recap

    After a straight butt kicking on September 7, 2023, the boys went to work during practice with a totally different mindset. They dedicated themselves to unselfish football and a team-first philosophy. On Thursday, September 14, 2023, our line blocked better than ever, and because of that, they allowed our backfield to showcase their talents, led by AJ Cantu, Angel De La Rosa, and Matthew Wimer.

  • 9-15-2023 Junior High Cross Country FEAST Invitational and Bandera Invitational Recap

    The Lytle Junior High Cross Country teams attended the Feast Invitational Meet on September 2, 2023, and the Bandera Invitational meet on September 9, 2023. The teams have shown excellent progression day in and day out. Whether it's learning the importance of getting out fast, pacing, placing, throwing on surges, attacking hills, or capitalizing on an opponent that has broken form. These kids have learned every aspect of this sport we call Cross Country. I highly encourage you to attend a Meet in the near future. You will not be disappointed.

  • 9-15-2023 7th Grade Football at Natalia

    Yesterday, September 14, 2023, the Junior High Pirates travelled to Natalia for 7th Grade edition of the “The Legacy Bowl”. Get accustomed to hearing this, “It was the Burl Joplin show”. If any of you remember seeing Clayton Joplin play at Walter Joyce Field, you know what I’m talking about. The young man does amazing things on a football field. However, he’ll be the first to acknowledge how well his teammates did for him to be successful. The offensive line was led by Chevy Frias and Andrew Frausto and the defense was outstanding. Our puppies are becoming dogs. Christian Cantu, Elliot Mata, Brayden Robinette and Joseph Jimenez stood out in a great defensive effort. Special shout out to Ryan Hendrickson and James Thompson for stepping up at multiple positions after we had pregame circumstances beyond our control. When shaking hands, I heard comments like, “Be humble”, “Respect ‘em”, “Tell ‘em good game”. Our coaching staff couldn’t be prouder.

  • 9-8-2023 7th Grade Football vs Navarro Panthers

    Yesterday afternoon, September 7th, 2023, the 7th grade football team kicked off their season against the Navarro Panthers. We, coaches, usually get to see our young football players grow up throughout the season. It is always satisfying in Week 10 to remember how young and naïve they were at the first game. Well, we got a season’s worth in 1 game. In the first half, this team had a “deer in the headlights” look about them. In the second half, they looked like bona fide football players. It’s a great group of boys and we are looking forward to the rest of the season. Yesterday’s game was in a scrimmage format.

  • 9-8-20203 Junior High Volleyball at Crystal City

    On September 7, 2023 the Lady Pirates Junior High volleyball team traveled the long road to Crystal City. A special thank you and shout out to Armando Esquibel for providing us with an air-conditioned bus; once again, we found ourselves in another gym without air conditioning. Crystal City was very apologetic, they, like many, were dealing with hot temperatures and ACs were working overtime.

  • 9-7-2023 Junior High Volleybal at Natalia

    On August 31, 2023, the Lady Pirates Junior High Volleyball team traveled the short distance to our favorite rivals in Natalia. The ladies were so excited coming off their performance of last week and were ready to play. Although they walked into a hot gym, again, this did not detour the girls; they even seemed more determined than ever to compete.

  • 9-1-2023 Junior High Cross Country at Medina Valley Pantehr Invitational Meet

    The Lytle Junior High Cross Country teams attended the Medina Valley Panther Invitational this past weekend, August 26, 2023. The teams displayed great showings, coming off the best summer base training in the history of the Lytle Junior High cross-country program. Despite the raging heat and humidity, our Pirates found solutions, not excuses. In the 7th Grade girls' division, the dynamic duo of Lila Cortinas and Annalise Quintanilla led the way, placing 3rd and 4th out of 76 runners. We did not assemble a 7th Grade girls' team this time, but we look forward to it soon.

  • 8-25-2023 The First Baptist Church of Lytle Welcomes Pirate Staff Back to School with a Delicious Meal!

    More than 250 Lytle Pirate employees enjoyed hospitality and a hot meal from the First Baptist Church of Lytle as they started the new school year a few weeks ago on August 4, 2023. This tradition started back in 2001 and thousands have enjoyed this generous and loving tradition over the past 20 years! Pastor James Engle, his church members and church youth (our own Lytle Pirate students) were gracious hosts.

  • 8-23-2023 Junior High One Act Play

    Junior High theater teacher, Mrs. Belinda Hughes (28 years of service with Lytle) always does an amazing job with her students and directs their plays. Last school year, she and her students enjoyed a great deal of success - winning first place in the district competition with their performance of The Dear Departed, A Comedy in One Act by Stanley Houghton. While Mrs. Hughes is very proud of his entire cast and crew. She was especially proud of three sixth grade students who were cast in the lead roles. Now, you can enjoy this award-winning performance, brought to you by the high school students in Skull Studios. https://youtu.be/8ySlF-qEN4g

    Our Lytle Pirate Convocation always feels like a family reunion. Returning Pirate Staff and newly hired Pirates come together to share hopes, dreams and goals for the new school year. Kicking off with performances from our talented band students, dancers and cheerleaders set the tone for LeeAnna Mask, President of our Lytle ISD Board of Trustees, to welcome everyone with encouraging words, "All our school programs had history-making success last year, and I'm certain we'll continue to build on that success this school year."

  • 8-1-2023 Thank you to Lytle Methodist Church for a wonderful New Pirate Staff Luncheon!

    What a treat! The Lytle Methodist Church hosted our New Employees and Leadership teams for a Build-Your-Own Chalupa/Nacho plate with all the trimmings. With some help from their church youth (our own Lytle Pirate students) everyone was blessed by a warm welcome, a delicious meal and sweets to top it all off. They also had some fabulous door prize drawings that included creative baskets filled with all of our educator favorite things. Special thanks to Juliana Lingo, who makes sure we have strong church/school partnerships with all of our local churches. Also tons of gratitude, hugs and love go out to all the church members, including Susie Sollock and Garnett Wagner who are former full time Lytle educators who continue to support our district in so many valuable ways. These two ladies answer our calls with servant hearts!

  • 8-1-2023 A Great Day to Welcome New Pirates!

    This morning, our Lytle Leadership team had the great pleasure of welcoming our new Lytle employees to our Pirate Staff Family. We already feel so blessed to have these wonderful and talented folks join us in our Vision (A place where students maximize their potential as active agents of their learning.) And, in fulfilling our Mission (Lytle ISD exists to design learning experiences to empower students.) When you see them in the next few days and weeks, please extend a warm Pirate welcome and let them know we are all here to help them 💛LOVE Lytle💛 as much as we do! Great job to Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Center and Dr. Breithaupt for making the morning meet-and-greet session so informative and so much fun!
