  • 9-16-2019 Varsity Football vs. Natalia

    Humbled would be a word best used to describe Friday, September 13th's home opener against Natalia. The game couldn't have started any better for us in the first five minutes. The Pirates kicked off and within 3 plays we intercepted a pass and returned the ball to the 5-yard line. After the great start, we settled with a field goal and things snowballed on us from there. We have a lot to work on if we are going to reach our goals this year. We have the young men to accomplish these goals and it was great to see them this morning, ready to get things on the right track. If you see any of the guys around campus, the district, Lytle, give them some words of encouragement, that's what we are doing at the Field House. We will be better prepared and ready to go next game.

  • 9-16-2019 JV Football vs. Natalia

    The two weeks prior to the Natalia game have been extremely energetic and enthusiastic, with the JV starting the season with 2 consecutive wins. But last week had other plans of its own. With a stacked Natalia JV team, our student-athletes were outmatched by size, strength, and speed.

  • 9-16-2019 JH Cross Country Results at UIW Meet

    September 14th, we traveled to the North side of San Antonio to compete against teams we don’t see too often. Last week we took on the large schools of Medina Valley and Eagle Pass. This week we take on just as tough competition in the form of private track clubs and Academies and Christian schools. This group of young men is very special. This team has some great talent in 7th and 8th grade. They are getting the attitude that whoever steps to the line will have to run their best to beat this group. This was truly a Junior High race with a combined group of lads and ladies. The boys were the Meet Champion and the girls were 5th overall. The boys began the Junior High day of competition. They had the opportunity to see college runners begin the day and they were not to be outdone. I told the boys before the race that I had seen the trophy for winning the Meet and I think they should bring it back to Lytle. As the race developed, the San Antonio Swift Track Club had the first two finishers and the 8th finisher. We had Rudy Cepeda finish 3rd, Abel Sanchez finish 5th and Luke Estrada finish 7th. San Antonio Swift led 11 to 15 but Cross Country teams consist of 5 runners. Brandon Obando scored 11 points and Stefan Grigsby scored 26 to give Lytle Junior High 52 points. Swift Track Club’s 4th and 5th runners finished scoring 20 and 29 points totaling 60. It was fun to see the excitement of the boys as they ran up during the ladies' race holding the award. Coach McCarthy, who drove the bus, said they were so excited and she and Mrs. Van Der Camp watched the girls finish. I appreciate her bringing her dog Hudson to watch the Junior High. The picture includes all the boys who ran and each one is important to the team because in practice each day they push each other to go faster.
