  • 10-15-2019 Lytle Cross Country District at Dilley

    Your Lytle Cross Country team traveled down to Dilley yesterday, October 14th, for their final Meet of the regular season, the District 30-3A Cross Country Meet. Like most sports teams, staying healthy throughout the season is key for one's success. This year we were hit very hard with injuries. We had some that tried to do too much too quick, some that wore equipment that may have caused the problem, some ran through things instead of sitting and some of it was just bad luck. Regardless the reason, we had to compete without 2 of our best runners in both Varsity boys and Varsity girls. I told the runners before we got off the bus that we would find out if we had a program or not, if we were able to fill those spots with JV runners and not lose a beat. I can't say that we are quite just there yet, but we did have some great performances at a time we really needed them.

  • 10-8-2019 JH Cross Country District Meet in Dilley

    We began with the ladies racing the course. The “follow me” vehicle took a quicker turn making the course shorter than 2 miles, but every lady ran the same course, so I was fine with the race. The ladies ran with heart today in less humid but warm conditions. After the race was over the results were held until the awards ceremony. Because all the girls ran together it was difficult to tell who was a 7th Grader and who ran for the 8th Grade. I felt the ladies ran well and I want to highlight one 7th Grade young lady. Celeste Guerrero started on the first day of practice and she never missed a practice. She didn't practice fast, but she worked. At Devine she ran her first mile at 11:00. Today she ran a 9:03 and finished as the fifth girl at 20:13. Her effort allowed every lady to receive a 3rd place team medal and a plaque.

  • 10-3-2019 JH Cross Country at Devine Meet

    Yesterday, October 2nd, the Junior High ran their last race before the District race next week in Dilley. The golf course in Devine is a challenge due to the inclines and soft sandy soil. All did well and as one boy from another team asked Luke Estrada, as he was giving high fives to the finishers of the race, "why is Lytle so good at Cross Country?" The answer is due to the hard work put in by each runner in Lytle.

  • 9-26-2019 JH Cross Country Gonzales Meet

    Yesterday, September 25th, we took our annual trip to Gonzales for the Junior High Meet. Coach Ruiz has gratefully allowed me to showcase these fine runners at their own Meet. Unfortunately, my planning for time was a bit off. We arrived in Gonzales when the 7th Grade was starting. They started the race at about 5 minutes early, but I should have left a bit earlier, but I wanted to finish teaching my 6th period class to allow the football players to give their speeches since they are playing in Cotulla today. Best of Skill to the lads. The coaches for Gonzales allowed the 7th Grade ladies to run with the 8th Grade. Unfortunately for Addison and Valentina they missed a medal. I think they would have placed in the 7th Grade race. The course was different this year, so it is hard to compare times from last year. Lunna Reyes did an excellent job of taking times at the finish.
