1-20-2023 7th Grade Boys Basketball at Dilley

Last evening, January 19, 2023, the 7th Grade Pirates travelled down to face off against the Dilley Wolves. It was a tale of two teams.  

To start, the B-Team continued its winning ways as they pulled off their 3rd win a row; all with wins over 15 plus points! This team has really turned the corner with defensive hustle and energy on one end; a fast-paced and efficient offense on the other! Michael Scotello has become a staple of the team both defensively and offensively. The boys are excited about taking the court every week and look forward to continuing their winning ways for our last home game vs Hondo next week!  

The A team has been riding this roller coaster of emotions all season long! There have been some good highs and lows. Last week was one of the most competitive games that the boys had been in all season while still being on the losing end; last night the boys' game was on the lower end of their roller-coaster season ride. We came out a bit flat and were out hustled for the start of the game, which put them in a big hole. After half time, the energy was picked up and the boys were back to competing the only way they knew how: fast, hard, and till the final buzzer! The result was not the one we anticipated, but these boys never let their spirits waiver. They are a resilient bunch and it will continue to show for the rest of the year.  

Our final home game is next Thursday, January 26, 2023, vs the Hondo Owls and we hope to see all of you out there for your support!  


B-Team: Lytle 22 - Dilley 8 

A-Team: Lytle 12 - Dilley 34
