11-17-2021 Girls' Varsity Basketball Beats Devine

The girls traveled down 35 last night, November 16, 2021, to face an always tough Devine squad. Devine was down a starter but the Lytle girls played great defense and kept the pressure on Devine the whole game, forcing them into 31 turnovers. All eleven girls poured their heart into this game and left everything on the court. The first quarter we held them to just 1 point. The second quarter we got a little too excited and made some turnovers and let Devine score 17 points. We went into halftime up 32-18. This was a physical game and both teams were going at it hitting the floor and taking hard fouls. We always say if we can take the 3rd quarter we can win because we can then control the 4th with our tempo. We came out the 3rd and won the battle 10-7. Beginning the 4th Lytle was up 42-25 and we continued to keep the lead, down to the buzzer. Everyone contributed big minutes in this great TEAM win. I am so proud of all the girls. The subbing is working when we need it and the bench is really stepping up. If we want to make the post season that is what we will need. 

Lytle 59 – Devine 37 

Highlights: 

Calyssa Sevier suffered some hits and has an ugly looking elbow but she came through with 21 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists, 8 deflections, and 4 steals. Caylssa’s now scored 620 points!

Sofia Hutton played great off the bench making Devine change their shot with her being big in the paint. She had 2 points, 2 rebounds, 1 deflection, 1 steal, and 1 block. 

Amelia Martinez is one of those quiet players but gets the job done. She has been great for the team being the first guard off the bench. She had 1 rebound, 1 assist, 1 deflection, and 1 steal. 

Arianna Garcia is fitting into her role helping us under the basket. She had 1 rebound, and 1 deflection.

This is a fun group to watch. They will be traveling to the Southside Tourney and will play all schools above 3A level. We are starting to gel and this tourney will include 5 games to help us even more. Thank you to everyone that traveled down to Devine last night the girls and coaches appreciate all of you! The girls are now 2-1 and still #22 in TABC rankings. Go Pirates!!
