  • 2-26-2020 Softball Non-District Game vs Hondo

    It was an exciting back and forth game, and with both teams producing multiple hits and runs, it was "one" moment that lit the spark for us. Junior, Clarissa Ramos was up to bat with 2 outs, no one on, and Hondo with a 10-7 lead; she had been in a slump until that moment, as she struck one right back up the middle to begin a 2-out rally. With bases loaded, and Freshman, Natalie Pacheco up to the plate, she connected on a pitch to right center field clearing the bases, along with herself as well (inside the park home run); she went 3-4 with 6 RBI's. Score was now 12-10, Lytle.

  • 2-26-2020 Commercials to Promote Advanced Media Class and Skull Studios Student Club.

    Hello High School and Junior High friends and counselors at all levels, This year was a low enrollment year for my Advanced Media classes, and so I enlisted the help of a few of my students to create some promotional/informational videos to hopefully generate interest for next year. (I've linked the videos of my students talking about their experiences and career-focused learning.) At the secondary levels, if you could help by sharing one or more of these videos with students in your classes, or PRIDE/FOCUS time, or during planned parent meetings, that would be great. At the primary, elementary, and junior high levels, please take a look at these videos with the idea in mind that I can send these students (Lexi, Jace, and Louis) to your campuses to talk about their projects, career choices and skills that they've honed while in Skull Studios and Advanced Media classes. I can even arrange to have them bring our S.T.E.A.M.y drone for a demonstration. These videos are also available on lytleisd.org, on the Public Relations page.

  • 2-25-2020 Bi-District Varsity Boys Basketball Playoff vs George West

    Last night, February 24th, the Pirates traveled to Falls City to take on George West HS for the 2020 Bi-District playoff game. The Pirates started off with bang pressuring the ball and giving George West all they could handle which led to a 18-7 first quarter lead. The Pirates went into half leading 35-24. The second half was a different story as George West fought back and hit some big shots to keep the second half close. The Pirates fought adversity and foul trouble in the 4th to pull out the win 73-70. John Martinez led all scorers with 22 points and 8 rebounds. Freshman Jordan Balderas had a big 4th quarter with 8 points and 8 rebounds to keep us in the game. I'm so proud of this group, they continue to be resilient and find ways as a team to play together and get big wins this season. The Pirates will head to the second round of the playoffs this Friday with playoff info going out tomorrow once finalized.

  • 2-24-2020 Lessons from the Rings - St. Mary's Hall Edition

    This week the Junior High throwers were a bit disappointed because the pits were too wet to throw in Hondo. The High School team threw at the Saint Mary’s Hall Relay event. I appreciate Coach Pierce scheduling this Meet because I know every thrower who gets to throw will receive a distance for their attempt. I was only able to throw three in every event and was concerned that I would not get to throw all my throwers in events. However, due to three getting sick and one twisting her ankle as she stepped off the bus, I had an exciting and adventurous day. It was an Alex day to throw shot. Alex Naeglin and Alex Medina, who will not throw shot in competition in most meets, stepped in to support their teammates and threw both shot and discus. Overall, we did well individually and as a team of throwers.

  • 2-19-2020 Visual Art Scholastic Event Competition

    This past Saturday we had 5 of our High School Art students compete in the Visual Art Scholastic Event Competition at East Central High School. The competition was tough with 39 school districts in Region 20E in attendance and a little over 1,000 art pieces competing! We had great results with all 5 students receiving the highest Juror rating of a 4! The best part of this competition in particular is the experience the artists get in interviewing with a Professional Art Juror. Students gain the confidence to speak not just about their work but to also justify their creative decisions. Congratulations to all artist who participated in the competition!

  • 2-19-2020 Varsity Girls Basketball Falls to Skidmore by 7 Points

    It is hard writing my last write up of the season when I am not ready for it to end. The girls represented District 30 last night with Pirate Pride and fought hard but lost to Skidmore by 7 points, 42-35. We finished the first quarter and tied it 5-5. Going into halftime we were only down by 8, we talked about needing to come out in the third quarter big but only 2 points were scored by both teams. We outscored Skidmore in the fourth 11-8 but going flat in that third quarter was the game changer that went their way. Leading the Pirates was Senior Kiara Nixon with 12 points, she was our offensive leader all season stat wise. Senior Eleni Keith having the best game all around with 9 points and showing great leadership all year long. Junior Kylie Mask my all-time defensive player taking another defensive charge last night had 8 points. Senior Autumn Frias had 3 and played her best year of basketball for Lytle. Junior Abby Moreno off the bench sank 2 free throws and had a great year with the minutes she played. Junior Noelia Medina had 1 point but her effort was there all night contributing in other ways she transitioned playing down low so well this year. Freshmen Natalie Pacheco was the little spark plug off the bench that gave us great minutes on defense and her highlight would be the Rivalry game she stepped up and helped us with that victory. Junior Clarissa Ramos had some great defensive moments last night and became a better offensive threat this season. Junior Alex Naegelin grabbed some big rebounds for us in the paint during the game and improved so much from last year. Senior Camryn Martinez played great defense off the bench that created some steals for us in the 4th quarter her defense helped all season. Senior Cheyenne Vega has so much heart and her highlight was scoring in our last home game against Dilley.

Come out and support as the boys work towards making a run in the playoffs.

  • 2-14-2020 Lessons from the Rings 2020 - Volume 1

    February 13th, Valentines Eve, the thrower's for Lytle began their season. The high school did not have a complete team yet but we competed with the ones we had in a dual meet at Hondo's new track. Once again, we were placed out as far away as we could be from the runners. We began the year with new Personal Records. I really didn't get to see the discus competition up close but I ran the shot putt ring.
