"Nobody who ever gave their best effort regretted it."
- George Halas
The last two days, March 30-31st, the throwers of the Lytle Track teams competed in the District Meet. In the Varsity, our goal was to be able to throw another day. In the Junior Varsity, it was preparation for the future to step into the Varsity. We have two boys and three girls advancing to throw in the area meet. We have the Junior Varsity champion in girls’ discus and boys’ discus and missed the JV girls shot put champion by 1/2 an inch. The JV boys team consisted only of Freshmen and showed great strength in adjusting to the bigger instruments.

Even though they put the shot put ring as far away from the discus ring I was able to see many of the throws. We did a good job of making our first throws put pressure on the other throwers. Cort would have won the discus with his first throw of 129' but he relaxed and threw well. Noelia reached back on her last shot attempt to amaze the crowd with her best throw since Pearsall. I appreciate James Black and Robey Harold for throwing with me for six years and wish them well as Robey attends Trinity and James pursues medicine at Baylor. We all are sitting well to advance to the Regional Meet but we must throw well at the Area Meet to accomplish this. My thanks to many will come but our season continues and our effort will hopefully be rewarded and we will keep dancing.
