  • 9-20-2019 It's a Great Day to be a Pirate!

    The Elementary would like to give a HUGE shout out to our Football Team and Cheerleaders! They came to welcome the students this morning and took the initiative to put out the cones for drop off at the Elementary before they welcomed our students for the day! It is amazing to see students take the initiative to help out. We love having these students come and visit ours each Friday, it makes for a GREAT day all around!

  • 9-18-2019 Lytle ISD Board of Trustee Spotlight - Anthony Reyna

    Please take a few minutes to watch this video about one of our Lytle ISD Board of Trustees, Mr. Anthony Reyna. The video was edited by Lytle students, Jason Chavira, an extremely talented video editor, and Jace Harris, who skillfully created the graphics animation and sound design. It's a great example of student skills combined with a wonderful story to tell about our Pirate culture.

  • 9-16-2019 Varsity Football vs. Natalia

    Humbled would be a word best used to describe Friday, September 13th's home opener against Natalia. The game couldn't have started any better for us in the first five minutes. The Pirates kicked off and within 3 plays we intercepted a pass and returned the ball to the 5-yard line. After the great start, we settled with a field goal and things snowballed on us from there. We have a lot to work on if we are going to reach our goals this year. We have the young men to accomplish these goals and it was great to see them this morning, ready to get things on the right track. If you see any of the guys around campus, the district, Lytle, give them some words of encouragement, that's what we are doing at the Field House. We will be better prepared and ready to go next game.

  • 9-16-2019 JV Football vs. Natalia

    The two weeks prior to the Natalia game have been extremely energetic and enthusiastic, with the JV starting the season with 2 consecutive wins. But last week had other plans of its own. With a stacked Natalia JV team, our student-athletes were outmatched by size, strength, and speed.

  • 9-16-2019 JH Cross Country Results at UIW Meet

    September 14th, we traveled to the North side of San Antonio to compete against teams we don’t see too often. Last week we took on the large schools of Medina Valley and Eagle Pass. This week we take on just as tough competition in the form of private track clubs and Academies and Christian schools. This group of young men is very special. This team has some great talent in 7th and 8th grade. They are getting the attitude that whoever steps to the line will have to run their best to beat this group. This was truly a Junior High race with a combined group of lads and ladies. The boys were the Meet Champion and the girls were 5th overall. The boys began the Junior High day of competition. They had the opportunity to see college runners begin the day and they were not to be outdone. I told the boys before the race that I had seen the trophy for winning the Meet and I think they should bring it back to Lytle. As the race developed, the San Antonio Swift Track Club had the first two finishers and the 8th finisher. We had Rudy Cepeda finish 3rd, Abel Sanchez finish 5th and Luke Estrada finish 7th. San Antonio Swift led 11 to 15 but Cross Country teams consist of 5 runners. Brandon Obando scored 11 points and Stefan Grigsby scored 26 to give Lytle Junior High 52 points. Swift Track Club’s 4th and 5th runners finished scoring 20 and 29 points totaling 60. It was fun to see the excitement of the boys as they ran up during the ladies' race holding the award. Coach McCarthy, who drove the bus, said they were so excited and she and Mrs. Van Der Camp watched the girls finish. I appreciate her bringing her dog Hudson to watch the Junior High. The picture includes all the boys who ran and each one is important to the team because in practice each day they push each other to go faster.

  • 9-15-2019 JV Volleyball vs. Hondo

    Hondo is probably the toughest team that the ladies will face all season, they were tougher than Devine for us. The ladies tried their best but had some frustrations on the court that they couldn't shake. The only thing that we can do is focus on fixing their frustrations and support each other the best that we all can.

  • 9-13-2019 7th Grade Football vs. Natalia

    I would like to congratulate our young men on their victory yesterday over Natalia 30-6. It was a fun and enjoyable moment for these fine Pirates to display their talents on the gridiron. Our young men didn’t flinch from adversity after Natalia started the game by running the opening kickoff back for a touchdown. The defense buckled down and didn’t allow another score the rest of the game. After receiving the kickoff, our offense moved down the field and scored on a 4th down pass with Luke Estrada connecting with Abel Garcia to tie the score. After other scores by Luke Estrada, Jair Flores, and Ezra Atease the Mighty Pirates enjoyed their hard-earned and well-deserved victory.

    On Tuesday, September 10, the Freshman Lady Pirates defeated Pearsall. The girls came out and played a fantastic game. They played aggressively and they served was exactly what we needed. They won in two 25-15 and 25-14. I am so proud of them, especially with some of them playing positions that are new to them.

  • 9-11-2019 JV Volleyball vs. Pearsall

    Last night, September 10th, the ladies hosted Pearsall and played them for the third time this season. It was not the best game the ladies have played but they still managed to take the win. It was a slower paced game than what the ladies played last Saturday. Even with a slower paced game, Chelsea Gonzales, Isabella Ytuarte, and Marley Walker had kills; Jocelyn Sekula had the most serves in a row with eight; Jocelyn Sekula and Dylan Reyna had a few aces; assists went to Sydney Estrada and Jocelyn Sekula. Alex Naegelin, Dylan Reyna, Daphne Perez, and Joclyn Ceja were there defensively. 26-28, 28-26, 15-5

  • 9-9-2019 JV Volleyball vs. Sabinal

    The ladies are playing well together, we knew we could beat Sabinal based on the last time we faced them. The team stepped on the court with confidence and came out with the win. What was most notable about the game is a few things: first, Joclyn Ceja scored her first point of the season (we were all very excited and proud of her); second, Isabella Ytuarte has worked on her serves all season and has improved on them greatly.

  • 9-9-2019 Varsity Football vs. Hondo Owls

    Last Friday, September 6th, the Pirates traveled to Hondo to take on the Owls. Offensively, we looked completely different as we scored on the opening drive after a defensive stop and a missed Owl field goal. The Williams to Wilson connection was in sync all night as they tallied 168 yds together. When the guys got rolling, they are fun to watch. Defensively, we had our moments too, forcing 2 fumbles, 7 tackles for loss, and 3 sacks. Explosive plays and a stagnant 3rd quarter kept us from coming out on top.
