  • 12-14-2021 Girls Win Rivalry Basketball Game at Natalia

    December 14, 2021, the girls beat Natalia and brought back the trophy for the 6th year in a row winning 56-42. We had 16 points off transition compared to Natalia 3 points. We had 14 steals off of our press that helped us get some easy baskets. We struggled in the foul trouble column again last night. We have to be better at adjusting to the refs. It was a new starting lineup last night so we are still working on the chemistry of the team.

  • 12-13-2021 Girls Varsity Fall to Karnes City

    The girls lost their Friday night home opener to Karnes City 49-42. We got into foul trouble early and that hurt our game plan of pressing. KC played a zone and even though we knew this we struggled scoring against it. We were 24-24 going into the half but the 3rd quarter was the decision maker they outscored us 11-4. We shot 10/34 and missed 10 free throws we have to better in those areas to win big games. The girls all showed up for practice Saturday and we finally have all 11 girls healthy. The girls are now 1-1 in District and have 14 games left. We will travel to Natalia next and play our 6th year against them for the Rivalry Basketball Game.

  • 12-10-2021 8th Grade Girls Basketball vs. Poth

    Last night, December 9, 2021, we played “the other Pirates” from Poth, our goal was to get every one of the girls some playing time. We combined both the A & B teams since Poth did not have an 8th B-team, the B-team hasn’t had a game all season. Our girls always put their hearts and hard work into every game and although the score doesn’t reflect their hustle, we are extremely proud of the mini goals we accomplished last night. 8th Grade lost to Poth 8-49. Taryn Mc Donald had some excellent rebounds and a put back for 2 and a free throw, and Adrianne Muraira with two steals, one for a lay-up and the other for a 3-pointer. Everyone contributed to these young ladies putting us on the board: Mendoza, Sanchez, Villarreal, Lopez, Hutton, Sewell, Georgiev, Garcia, Dominguez, Perez, Cruz, Aldape, Castano, and Estrada all were able to experience some playing time. Thank you for your amazing support.

  • 12-7-2021 Watch the Video: Lytle Community Pep Rally 2021

    It's that time of the year when we reflect on our successes, challenges, and learning opportunities. Our Community Pep Rally is one of our first opportunities to give students industry standard cameras who may have never touched one previously. They are nervous, very green, and they make mistakes, but it always turns out to be great learning. This video is proof that there is value in just getting them out there to see what they can do! It's a 'throwback' from a content standpoint because it just got done a couple weeks ago. Our video editor, Sarah Ytuarte, has never edited a video before - this is her first time using Adobe Premiere Pro - but a great example of student learning in our Digital Design program. If you know the students listed in the credits, tell them you're proud of them for jumping in and trying new things!

  • 12-5-2021 Lytle Girls Basketball Finish Off Pre-Season!

    The girl’s finished the preseason off at the Navarro Tourney, Saturday, December 4, 2021. We went 2-3 for the weekend against some great competition and playing all schools above 3A classification. Coming off the loss in Hondo I was curious how the girls would respond and of course they came out fighting in each game.

    Yesterday, December 2, 2021, was an exciting day to say the least! The 7th Grade boys’ basketball team traveled to Cotulla to take on the Cowboys which so happened to be the same group of kids we recently played for a District title in football and the tension was high.

  • 12-3-2021 8th Grade Girls' Basketball vs. Cotulla

    Thursday, December 2, 20201, the Pirates hosted the Cowgirls of Cotulla in their second game of the season. After a week off for Thanksgiving break, we came back to work eager to get back on the saddle. The win was a team effort and although the record doesn’t reflect it, each girl contributed to the win through scoring, blocking, stealing, passing, and rebound. All the blocking, stealing, passing, and rebound made it possible for Adrianne Muraira to score all 18 points!

  • 12-1-2021 Varsity Boys Basketball Recap

    Last night, November 30, 2021, the Pirates took on San Antonio ISD YMLA HS and took a beating. We lost 71-54. This year no matter the pre-season or current state ranking we have been given, I made sure we could play as many city teams as possible to prepare us for a playoff run. Last night's beating humbled us all and proved we still have a lot of work to put in. Over the next few games, I will only be providing defensive stats as we get back to basics this afternoon on the defensive side of the ball. We've built success on pressing and playing defense and have gotten away from it.

  • 12-1-2021 Varsity Girls Defeated by Hondo

    Last night, November 30, 2021, the girls traveled to Hondo and had a rough night all around. Hondo jumped on us early and we just never could get anything to go our way. It was not the team I know. We will take this loss tally it in the loss column and move on. We have the Navarro Tourney this weekend and start District on Tuesday. We will face some good competition this weekend to prepare us for next week. We did not have anyone in double figures last night. Sevier, the Martinez’s and Hutton’s all scored. Go Pirates!
