Your Lytle Pirates Boys Varsity Basketball Team played in the Hondo Tournament this past weekend. The Pirates Boys Varsity Basketball Team is now 2-7 on the season but they have shown steady improvement and they are beginning to understand the basketball philosophy and mentality the coaches are attempting to instill.
The girls beat Natalia in their first home game appearance with the score of 53-31 to take home the trophy.I was amazed how the kids react to the Legacy Bowl for football so I wanted to create some of the that for the basketball girls. This was our first year to play them in Basketball and with them having a new head coach was perfect for starting a new tradition. We came out looking great on defense and breaking the press. The weekend before playing in the South San Tourney prepared us for this game. This was a great TEAM win with everyone getting valuable minutes on the court. Lauren Gomez led the team with 14 and Valencia Ramos which was MVP of the game had 12. Tatianna Flores added 9 and Sam Dear and Autumn Frias put in 5. I would like to thank Olympia Trophy for donating the trophy and the MVP medals. The girls will play at home on Tuesday against a tough Southside team game time 6:30. The girls are now 2-6 for the season. Go Pirates!!!!
Beginning with a tough and experienced Harlandale opponent, the Pirates struggled offensively and turnovers proved detrimental as the Pirates lost 69-27. On Monday, November 21, Lytle traveled to Bandera to play the Bulldogs. Although play improved, the Pirates struggled to hit free throws down the stretch, leading to a 40-46 loss. The road trip rounded out against the Poteet Aggies on Tuesday November 22. Facing a very quick and athletic Aggie team, the Pirates fought hard but came up short at the end, losing 39-46.
In Maria Godina's final High School Cross Country meet and she set a PERSONAL RECORD of 12:21.23 and finished 29th out of 150 runners. Sophomore Clarissa Cantu gained valuable experience competing at the State level for the first time. Her dedication make her future quite bright indeed.
