  • 2-10-2021 Varsity Boys Basketball Game Recap

    The Pirates have played two very tough playoff bound teams over the past few days. The Pirates played Karnes City this past Friday night, February 5, and won. From the start, the game was a track meet with each team pressing and playing at a fast pace. Karnes City was relentless and physical on the boards which challenged us to be just as physical. Although the starting five did well, two players off the bench stepped in and took their game to another level. Junior Bryson Duty had a career night scoring 21 points, while having 5 steals and 5 rebounds. The kid put on a show scoring 14 points in the 4th quarter alone. Junior Jacob Urlich scored 12 points, all three pointers to extend the lead at key moments in the second half.

  • 2-9-2021 Spittin' Seeds Update

    Ever try to spit seeds through a mask...it takes all the fun out of it. Last night, February 8, Pirate baseball hosted the Devine Warhorses in a Varsity baseball scrimmage. Highlights included Caleb Wood's 2 for 2 performance at the plate, Justin DeLeon's outstanding pitching performance, and the confused look on the face of the fans as they tried to figure out what the format was for the scrimmage. "Who won Coach?" IT'S A SCRIMMAGE...NOBODY WINS, NOBODY LOSES. It sure was great to be back on the baseball diamond. There is a lot to be excited about this season. Hope to see you at The Hill.

    Friday night, February 5, will be a night for these girls and community to remember for a lifetime. The girls beat Karnes City in front of a packed gym defiantly playoff atmosphere. We came out strong and were up 16-5 at the end of the 1st quarter. Karnes City battled back and outscored us in the 2nd and 3rd quarter. Then the 4th was back and forth but some clutch free throws by Noelia Medina and a steal by Kylie Mask at the end gave us breathing room and we put our faith in our defense and it came through for us again. We scored 27 of our points on Karnes City turnovers. We were 12-18 from the free throw line. We collected 17 steals. This was a great team victory, we only had 8 suited out so everyone contributed on this big win. That gave us win #13 in District and win 20 for the season.

  • 2-3-2021 Girls Win 27-3A District Championship

    The girls traveled to Poteet last night, February 2, and beat Poteet. That win officially made the girls’ program the 27-3A District Champs. We held Poteet to 4 points at the half. Forced Poteet into 42 turnovers. We collected 32 steals off our press. We scored 34 points in transition. We continue to give all our credit to our defensive effort every win the team has racked up. We are now 12-0 in District with 2 games remaining our next goal is to finish with a perfect 14-0 record. We are now 19-5 for the season. The girls moved up to #20 in the rankings. The last time the girls won District was before my time back in 2011. The last 7 years paid off last night when we accomplished this great achievement with obstacles we are facing in the world right now. The girls have stayed focused and dedicated since day one and their work ethic was rewarded. I think it is still sinking in but once that trophy arrives it will be the icing on the cake. It was a great team win and accomplishment; it could not have happened to a better group.

  • 2-3-2021 Boys Powerlifting at Texas Strength Systems

    Last night, February 3, the Pirate Boys Team competed, and we saw some really special efforts across the Team. Two lifters reached personal best in all three lifts, overcoming an injury in the first lift to go on to win the weight-class. I'd like you to understand the effort these student-athletes put into the sport never ceases to amaze! If not for the Covid world we currently live in, I would invite you all out to watch. Sadly, however, most of their competitions are limited, & no observer events.
