  • 10-28-2019 Lytle Cross Country at Regional IV-3A Cross Country Meet

    I told the Cross Country runners before we left on Sunday, October 27th, that if they were not ready to accomplish the goals I had set for each team...then they needed to get off the bus. Of course, no one would ever embarrass themselves and get up, so of course they were stuck with trying to achieve them. For the girls, it was beating the two District foes that we had just lost to over a week and a half ago. For the boys, it was WINNING....BUT....first trying to make it in. And I had to do that because it was the first time we were running our FULL TEAM and we haven't had everyone training like we would have liked due to all the injuries.

  • 10-28-2019 8th Grade Junior Achievement Field Trip

    Lytle 8th Graders visited the Junior Achievement Finance Park today, October 28th. Over the past several weeks, students have been learning in class about financial literacy, management, and responsibility. This project-based learning curriculum culminated in our students successfully completing a budget simulation at the Capital One Junior Achievement Finance Park. Students worked with volunteers from Chase Bank during the field trip. Chase Bank sponsored our day and also provided pizza for our students. Lytle Junior High is proud to partner with Junior Achievement of South Texas as this program is dedicated to educating middle and high school students in the basics of financial literacy: budgeting, investing, managing risk - all while reinforcing the value of education and how it affects one’s future. Students become empowered with the skills and inspiration needed to create a better tomorrow for themselves and our community. I am very proud of all the students and all their hard work.

  • 10-28-2019 Area Results for Band

    Saturday, October 26th, was the UIL Area E Marching Contest in Beeville. We were one of 31 bands in the Area that qualified for the contest. The band had a good run of their show with a few minor problems, but overall, I thought they did a great job. The judges seemed to agree, placing them 14th overall out of the highly competitive field. It was disappointing to come so close to being one of the 12 bands to advance to the finals that night but missing the finals by just two places is the closest we have ever come, and I must be pleased by that.

  • 10-25-2019 8th Grade Football vs. Jourdanton

    The goal every Thursday game day is to COMPETE, and compete we did. Our 23 football players took on an 8th Grade squad from Jourdanton that was 50 deep. Final score was 12 – 6 in favor of Jourdanton. The second half was turned into a running clock with 6-minute quarters because of the storm that was looming. EVERY player gave their all in whatever capacity they asked contribute. I’m posting our roster because to single out a few names would to injustice to the TEAM effort displayed last night, October 24th. If you haven’t had a chance to see these 8th Graders play, I urge you to do so.

  • 10-25-2019 JV Football vs. Jourdanton

    Last night, October 24th, as the JV Football team arrived at the football stadium, they saw an opposing team consisting of 55 players stretching on the field. Compared to our 20 suited up on our sideline, the first thought that runs through a 15 to 16-year-old student-athlete's mind is, "Man, they have a lot of guys. They are big!" There's TWO things you can do as a person at this point......you can Compete, or you can Complain. As both teams were ready to take the field to begin the game, the JV Pirates were ready for the challenge!

  • 10-23-2019 Golf Harlan Fall Invitational

    This past weekend the Lytle golf team participated in the Harlan Fall Invitational. Both golfers represented our District with pride and respect. Freshman Khye Stewart participated in his 1st Varsity tournament of his high school career. Khye carded a 99 and 105. His 2-day total of 204 was good for 17th place. After becoming an uncle early Friday morning, Senior John Martinez went out and shot an 81. This left him two shots off the lead. Saturday he was firing on all cylinders and shot a 71 (his first under par round in competition) and won the tournament by 4 strokes. The Harlan win was John’s 3rd HS tournament victory.

  • 10-21-2019 Varsity Football vs. Cole

    Last Friday night, October 18th, was a tale of two halves. In the first half, our Pirates played a half everyone would be proud of. Sophomore Daniel Aguirre kicked a 37-yard field goal to put the Pirates ahead. A few minutes later a busted coverage would allow the Cougars to score and take the lead. Within minutes the Defense created an interception by Sophomore Zak Placido who took it in for a score. A Cole Pick 6 would also happen before the half to make the halftime score Cougars 14, Pirates 10. We went into the locker room feeling positive, if we clean up some of our mistakes, we would get a positive result.
