3-21-2023 Boys Varstiy Basketball Final Recap

I just wanted to relay this final recap for our historical season. Not only did this group of Seniors lead us back to the State tournament after a 99-year absence, but they also cleaned up all the awards for District 28-3A. The boys finished with a season record of 34-7 and ranked 7th by TABC before the State Tournament appearance. Seniors Jordan Balderaz and Jaelen Guevara were also named to the TABC 3A All-Region 4 team. Fingers crossed as I am still waiting for the TABC All-State team to be released. 

Thank you to the entire Lytle community for showing up to the Alamodome, the community parade, and the love shown to our program on this historic season. If you see these young men in town or on campus, please congratulate them on their individual awards:
