  • 11/16/2019 8th Grade Ladies Basketball at Devine Tournament

    This weekend, November 9th, the Junior High Lady Pirates began their A Team basketball season in Devine. Last year, as 7th Graders they beat Devine in the first game, so Devine was relegated to the consolation bracket in their own tourney. This year, they set the bracket, so we had to begin the day against Hondo. Hondo was the team that pushed this group last year the greatest. Coach Bohl had a wedding to attend so I was blessed to coach this group of stellar ballers. We took the lead from the opening tip with a fine fast break. It was a good opening test for the ladies who trailed by 3 at the end of the first quarter. Stellar defense in the second quarter blanked Hondo and we took a 14 to 8 lead at half. We have our big three; Calyssa Seveir led us in scoring with 8, Campbel Aldridge scored 6 and Katara Whitfield added 5. The victory was a total team effort with Amelia Martinez adding 4, Eternity Diaz 3 and Jessica Mata hitting one of our 3 free throws to add a point. We ended the game with the final score being Lytle 27, Hondo 18. For me, personally, I was pleased because I have never coached a team that has beaten Hondo in Basketball.

  • 11-13-2019 JV1 Boys Basketball Scrimmage vs. Pleasanaton

    Last night, November 12th, the JV 1 boys basketball team traveled to Pleasanton High School for their one and only scrimmage prior to opening the regular season. We got off to a very slow start and fell behind against a very disciplined and well coached Eagles team. It took a strong full court defensive effort to get back in the ball game which led to a dramatic conclusion. Our defensive effort in the second half was led by Matthew, Eldridge, Malaki Castro, Joe Cortez and lastly Collin Aldridge who made the final 3-point desperation shot at the buzzer, for our only lead of the game and the game winning shot. There were some positive things we saw as a staff, as well as many things that need improvement.

  • 11-13-2019 Girls Varsity Basketball vs. La Vernia

    The girls opened their season last night, November 11th, against a tough La Vernia team and took a loss of 62-38. We did some good things, but we saw the things we need to work harder on to get to where we need to be come January. We face many tough teams like this in the next few months, but it always makes you better. Noelia Medina led the team with 17 points and Kiara Nixon added 11. Eleni Keith put up 9 points for us, she hit her head hard on the floor last night and it was ruled a concussion last night by doctors, she will be out at least 2 weeks. Please keep Eleni in your prayers. Clarissa Ramos and Kylie Mask got into foul trouble early so that took away from our defensive game plan. Abby Moreno and Alex Nagelin gave us great minutes off the bench. Like I told the girls last night, we learn from our mistakes and show up today and work harder. Go Pirates!!!!

  • 11/8/2019 JV Football vs. Marion

    November 7th, the Pirate defense led by Joseph Araujo, Malakai Castro, and Cecil Olivarri, were able to create a 3 and out on the opening offensive drive for Marion, which gave the ball to the offense just 2 minutes into the 1st quarter. As it has been all season long, the very first play of the game has been a bubble screen, double pass that has a completion rate of 100%; it was completed last night from Collin Aldridgeto Malakai Castro who passed to Darren Martinez, in which Martinez scampered down the sideline for an opening play 60 yard Touchdown pass to give the Pirates the early lead, 6-0. A 2 point conversion was attempted after an offsides call, which was successful, so the lead went up to 8-0 Pirates.

  • 11-8-2019 7th Grade Football at Marion

    Last night, November 7th, your Lytle Pirates 7th Grade Football team traveled to Marion, to play the Bulldogs losing 6-22. The lone touchdown was scored by Luke Estrada. Other outstanding players, are the Ankle Biters defensive linemen known for their small size under 5’ tall and under 80 lbs. And their lightning fast speed Tristan Lopez, Robert Inming, Matthew Soto, and Malichi Rubio. They caused mayhem in the back field. Once again Coach Clack and myself would like to thank the Lytle Junior High staff and faculty for all the great help you have given this football season.

  • 11-8-2019 8th Grade Football vs. Marion

    Another week, another barn burner. Lytle and Marion’s 8th Grade Football teams slugged it out last night, November 7th, in great football weather. Cold and misty. With a minute and a half left, the score was tied 28 – 28 and Marion scored with seconds left to win 36 – 28. Our 8th Grade team fought with heart and pride and represented our community well. Hard to believe our season ended 2 – 7 because we were in just about every game. It’s been a pleasure to coach these young men as they prepare for HS athletics. Thanks to all of the JH Teachers and Administrator for their support.

  • 11-4-2019 Monster Tech Test Field Trip at St. Phillips College

    Friday, November 1st, some of our 8th Grade students attended the Monster Tech Festival hosted by St. Phillips College. Our students had an opportunity to tour the campus, talk with program representatives, and be part of live demonstrations. Our students participated in a phlebotomy (drawing blood) demonstration, aircraft mechanics, special effects makeup/prosthetics, manufacturing, auto tech, and film presentations. This was a great experience for them and another step forward in making them college and career ready. St. Phillips put on a great event that featured live music, food trucks, an escape room, video game experience, and many other interactive games for the students to enjoy. Thanks again to everyone who helped with making this trip happen.

  • 11-4-2019 Varsity Football vs. Karnes City

    the offense was able to drive the ball down and score on our opening possession to tie the game up on a touchdown by Logan Wilson from Williams. From there it was a little tougher because of turnovers, busted coverages and injuries. Our last touchdown was scored by Daniel Aguirre on a 19-yard run in the 4th quarter. Again, I will always be proud of these young men for the effort they play with and a lot of heart and class each and every week.

  • 11-1-2019 8th Grade Volleyball vs. Dilley

    On Monday, Oct. 28th, the 8th Grade Junior High volleyball team ended their season defeating the Dilley Pup in two sets 25-17 and 25-13. It was a packed house but what made it more memorable was the volleyball girls had to write a letter to someone who has inspired them throughout their school years. Thank you all for coming out and thank you for inspiring these young ladies. If you didn’t get an opportunity to see these young ladies in action, you’ll have to wait till next year. However, you will have the opportunity to see them in basketball and you’ll be absolutely amazed with them. I will miss them, they are a great group of girls, very coachable, and eager to learn. Here are some pictures from Monday night and some players with their guest. Thank you for all your support.

  • 11-1-2019 8th Grade Football vs. Karnes City

    Great night for our 8th Grade football team as they played their last game of the season at Walter Joyce Stadium, October 31st. The night ended in a 44 – 28 victory. All 3 parts of the game shined. Offensively we gained over 450 yards and kept the ball for all but 14 seconds in the 3rd quarter. Running backs Daniel Romero, Rudy Cepeda, Amadeus Trejo-Perez and Jacob Guevara ran with ease behind the blocking of Richard Hernandez, Anthony Perdomo, Hector Anaya, Mario Diaz and Elijah Martinez. Receiver Drew Gonzales had a couple of key receptions. Defensively we had 3 interceptions (Rudy Cepeda, Amadeus Trejo-Perez, and Jacob Guevara) and gang tackled all night Adriel Galindo, Kalup Aguinaga, Kris Herandez, Jeremiah Adams and Rowdy Harvey. Special teams had a successful on-side kick (kicker Marcos Alvarado) and a couple of kick-off returns past mid field (Charlie Gonzalez and Danie Romero). We also had a 2-point conversion trick play pass that was completed……to the Karnes City safety. Oh well, first of many things to correct for our season finale in Marion next Thursday afternoon. When you see these 8th Grade student athletes, congratulate them on a great night of football.
