Boys Varsity Playoff vs Somerset

Good Afternoon Pirate Nation,

The Boys’ Varsity Basketball season came to a heartbreaking end last night as the Pirates lost to the Somerset Bulldogs in the closing seconds of the bi-district playoff game, 64-68. The Pirates played well most of the night and led the majority of the game. Crucial made free throws by the Bulldogs ultimately decided the game. The improvement made this season is indescribable but thanks to Pirate Nation, we’ve had plenty along the way to witness and support the progress. The seniors (Isaiah Gomez, Isaiah Perez, Caleb Carrillo, Jeremy Thomison, Noah Vasquez, and Jorge Alfredo Holguin) stepped up to embraced the challenge to lead and have laid the foundation for the program to flourish in the future. I have no doubt that these seniors have made a lasting impact on the underclassmen to continue the success that was achieved this year. Leading scorers for the Bi-District Playoff game:Jeremy Thomison (15pts, 6 rebounds), Isaiah Perez (13pts, 12 assists), Jociah Cruzzi (12pts, 14 rebounds), Jorge Anthony Holguin (10pts).  Thank You once again to our central office staff, HS administration,  teachers, student body and of course our sixth man on the team, the LYTLE DRUMLINE for your support in the rebuild of the boys basketball program. GO PIRATES!!! 

Thanks for all you do,

Coach Hernandez

Varsity Boys Devine Recap and Playoff Game info

Good Afternoon Pirate Nation,

This past Friday Feb. 9 the boys played their last district game of the season and lost 49-46 to Devine. The pirates played hard but were 8-18 from the free throw line which ultimately cost us the game against Devine. Jociah Cruzzi lead all scorers with 17 pts while Jeremy Thominson added 8 pts and 10 rebounds. The regular season is now officially over after last nights district games being played with the Pirates having the the last bye of the second round but the season is not over yet. The Pirates battled all district play and have earned a playoff birth for the post season. 

Our team which consist of 6 seniors were in 7th grade the last time the Lytle varsity boys were in the basketball post season. When I met the boys in May of 2016 after taking over as head boys basketball I asked them, "What are the two things you want your team to accomplish before you graduate"?  They all responded with the seam answer, a playoff birth and for our home stands to be filled during the games. I told them it would start with hard work, trust and belief the in the new system, and a new mindset that they could be the group to turn the program around. Two years later on Jan.16, 2018 the boys came in fired up before our first district home game and said, COACH, look outside, the drum line is setting up and the stands are jammed packed". The excitement in their eyes will be a moment I will never forget as coach and I want say thank you to the Lytle community for all the support this season. It has meant the world to our boys.

The Pirates will now take part in their second goal from two years ago and will face the Somerset Bulldogs this upcoming TUESDAY FEBRUARY 20, 2018 AT 7:00 PM AT SOUTHWEST HS for the first round of the playoffs. We hope to see all of the Pirate Nation wearing black and yellow on Tuesday night as we chase history with the first playoff win in boys basketball since 2008. GO PIRATES!!!!!

Thanks for all you do,

Coach Jacob Hernandez

Girls Varsity Basketball Season Comes To An End

The girls traveled to Pearsall Friday and lost to Crystal City by 3 we got down early in the 4th and just ran out of time but the girls fought hard the last five minutes. A year ago I would of never thought my team would consist of 3 seniors 3 sophomores and 4 freshmen. We had  a lot of success and brought back trophies from every tournament we played in. Friday night in the locker room was very emotional because reality was no playoffs this year. As we lined up and said goodbye to our seniors every girl in that locker room was crying including myself I think I cried all the way home that made me realize we had built a special bond this year as a TEAM and everything outside the locker room didn’t matter. We won 15 games that is more than the program has in the last 2 years. The 3 seniors Lauren Gomez, Samantha Dear and Jazlyn Aguinaga have been with me the last 4 years and  have made a great impact on the program and will truly be missed. I’m excited about all the youth coming back and truly believe all the experience they received this year will bring them back hungry for success.

Thank you to everyone that came out and supported the program all year especially the parents and to all the departments that help us run the Athletic Department on a daily basis.

Thank  you Coach Prince and Tilley for all your hard work and dedication the last 5 months.

Thank you Deborah Carrillo for all you do and Erica Camacho filling in when she not here.

Thank you Coach Jones for keeping the kids healthy.

Thank you Debra Constanzo for always working with me when I mess up.

Good Luck Boys Basketball Playoff Bound.

Go Pirates!!!!

JV Boys Basketball Lose to Carrizo Springs

On Tuesday night the JV boys faced district foe Carrizo Springs to kick off the second round of district play. Unfortunately, we did not show up ready to play. Once again, we got off to a slow start and had to play catch up - we just could not in this game. Our defense was lacking and we let the Wildcats play their game, suffering a 72-33 loss.

We were led in scoring by Jaron Calderon (11 points).

We next play Friday at Crystal City and we hope to have a better performance.

Current record:

Overall    10 – 8

District     3-2

8th Grade Lady Pirates Final Game vs. Crystal City

“If you can react the same way to winning and losing, that’s a big accomplishment.  That quality is important because it stays with you the rest of your life, and there’s going to be a life after tennis that’s a lot bigger than tennis life.”  - Chris Evert

I could replace tennis with basketball, 8th grade or for me coaching.  Last night the 8th grade Lady Pirates finished their game at home.  The first game or B game was a great victory for the ladies.  We were tied at 6 at the half but Giselle seemed to make the basket seem larger after the half with her bank shot NBA range 3 point shot.  We scored 11 in the quarter and took a 17 to 8 lead.  In the fourth quarter we were able to answer every Crystal City basket with a basket of our own.  We ended up winning our final game on our court 26 – 16 to finish the season with two victories both at home.  We were in every game except two when the 4th quarter started and the ladies played with effort and increased their basketball abilities.  The most exciting event was when Mia Godina got a rebound and scored.  I had a line of sight from Mia to her father sitting in the stands.  He was so excited for his daughter’s success especially with this being her first year to play basketball.  Thanks to all the parents who supported their daughters with their presence and encouragement during the season.  Giselle led the scoring with 7 points.  Skye, Daphne and Mia all added 4 points.  Lauren added 3 points and Marley and Alize rounded out the scoring with a bucket a piece. 

In the final game of the season the ladies in the second game or A game scored in double digits for the third time this season with 11 points.  We were able to show growth as we ran our press break at times and the 6 ladies gave their all.  Nicole led the scoring with 3. Victoria, Sydney, Diamond and Chelsea all added two points.  We finished the season 0-12.  I can’t say it turned out as I had hoped but like I told them yesterday at practice my Junior high football team went 0 for a bunch.  We were very seldom in a game but as we dedicated ourselves and never quit we were able to finish our Junior year in the Astrodome vs Port Neches Groves in a State Semi-final game.  In two weeks begins speed week the next great event in February next to Groundhog day.  So I finish with a quote from a great race car driver.

“Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of the opportunity when it occurs.”  -Mario Andretti

I am out until Friday when I will announce the findings of Phil the Groundhog.  Be blessed.

7th Grade Girls B Team Finish Strong

The 7th Grade B team played tonight with a vengeance. We were down some girls due to illness and injuries.

Last time we played Crystal City, we lost by one! It was a hard pill to take then and it stayed with us. So, we returned the salty taste and rallied a 9-8 Win!! We finished our season stronger than we started, 6-3. 

I am extremely proud of these ladies. They never gave up and they never complained. I cannot say enough!

I need add a special mention about Maggie May Jimmie- She is the MOST improved player ever! She has worked so hard running and her defensive skills have become outstanding! 

Thank you to Mr. Salinas and Mrs. Gonzales for attending last night's game! It always helps to have the teachers see the kids and the kids see the teachers at their games! Thank you to all that continue to support us and when you see any of these ladies, please let them know how wonderful they are!! 

Frances Aguinaga
Layla Rodriguez
Maggie May Jimmie
Rosalinda Jimmie
Yadi Mendez
Adeline Martinez
Marissa Lopez
Nivea Sanchez
Amanda Soto All-Star on Offense
Cambri Davila All Star on Defense  

Love Love Love These Ladies!!

JV boys slip past Devine

Last night the JV boys traveled to Devine for a district game vs. the Warhorses. Once again we had issues getting off to a good start and trailed 10-14 at the end of the 1st quarter. We stuck to our frantic defensive pressure and took control of the game and outscored Devine by 20 in the  quarter and had the halftime lead 34-23. Devine found their rhythm in the 3rd quarter and foul trouble hurt us and at the end of the 3rd quarter we only led by 5 points.

The 4th quarter saw both teams battle hard, with several lead changes throughout the period and we had to deal with 2 starters fouling out of the ball game. It was time for bench players to come in and step up as their numbers were called. Devine was able to take their last lead of the game with under 10 seconds in the game and the Pirates had one last chance to take the lead and the victory. After a timeout all 5 players on the court ran our out of bounds play with perfection as Zach Rodriguez found Paul Tomlinson for a pass inside the paint and Paul sank an easy layup with 1.1 seconds on the clock and we secured a huge win - 61 Lytle, 60 Devine.  

It was a wonderful environment to be a part of, as our community of parents, grandparents, friends, teachers and coaches came out in support of these young men and we thank everyone for their presence at the game.

The Pirates were led in scoring by Logan Wilson ( 24 points), Giovanni Flores-Garza ( 13 points) and Jaron Calderon ( 12 points), we also had key contributions off the bench from Zach Rodriguez, Paul Tomlinson, Adam Castro  and David Weitzel.

We next play Carrizo Springs next Tuesday at home at 5 pm.

Current record:

Overall  10 – 7

District 3 – 1

Boys' Freshmen Basketball vs Devine

Freshmen vs Devine

The Boys’ Freshmen Basketball team lost to Devine last night 52-38. After leading 21-19 at the half, the Pirates were unable to make necessary defensive stops, allowing Devine to take a 30-36 point lead in to the fourth quarter. The Pirates continued to fight, however they struggled to score down the stretch. Offensively, Jonathon Cantu (8pts) and JC Hernandez (7pts) fueled the Pirates while defensively Mark Cantu and Kaleb McDaris played well. Next game will be on Tuesday January 30 in Lytle vs Carrizo Springs. Current record: 4-7 overall, 0-4 district.

7th grade girls basketball vs. Carrizo 1-22-18

Last night we travel to Carrizo Springs, the girls hustled their hearts out. Some of the good things we say was hustle, they played great 2-3 zone defense, and the boxed out great.

8th grade JH Boys Basketball vs Carrizo Springs 1-22-18

Last night your 8th grade boys basketball team took on the Carrizo Springs Wildcats. It was another eventful night for both the B and A team. With another great crowd showing up to support the Pirates in their game.

Like always the B team started the games off first. With solid defense through the first half the Pirates were in the game and after the end of the first half the score was 16-12 Carrizo. Once the second half got going Carrizo Springs found their offensive rhythm and took a commanding lead over the Pirates that we could never come back from. The final score for the B team game was 37-22 Carrizo Springs. Good performances from Brian Cogburn, who scored a team high 8 points, Carlos Flores-Garza, with 5 points, and Adrian Balderas, who got multiple rebounds and ended with 5 points. The B team never quit and kept fighting the whole game and that is all we really ask from them.

The final game was the A team and like always they brought the crowd to their feet with great intensity. Carrizo Springs came out with a point to prove and took a good lead to end the first quarter, 17-9 Carrizo. Once the second quarter started the Pirates finally woke up and put the pressure on Carrizo and shortened the lead to 28-25 Carrizo led at the half. The second half was even more intense than the first and since the Pirates pressure was so successful, we kept the pressure on and finally took the lead after the third, 39-38 Pirates. Then the fourth quarter started and that is when things started to heat up! Both teams putting pressure on each other and not giving up and giving in to their opponents, the lead kept on going back and forth and at the end the Pirates made some crucial free throws to put the wildcats away. PIRATES WON, 57-54! Great performances from Matthew Sanchez, who had a game high 27 points with 5 three pointers, Zak Placido, with 14 points, Daniel Aguirre, who had 4 points, multiple rebounds and was a big leader in controlling the team in an intense situation, and Joe Cortez, who controlled the game at the point guard position and dribbled the ball terrific all night. Great performance and effort from the whole team and we are now 5-0 in district play.

Our next game is this Saturday when we will be participating in the Pleasanton Tournament. I would like to thank all the administration, staff, and students who stayed to support our Pirates in a very entertaining game. If you have not seen these boys play that is your loss because they always put on a great performance with a competitive drive that is on another level win or lose. Have a safe and good rest of the week and like always, GO PIRATES!!!

Junior High 8th grade girls basketball - Carrizo Springs

“Keep your fears to yourself, but share your inspiration with others.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

Last night as I went home about 10:30 there was a Cheshire Cat moon in the sky.  It reminded me of the scene when Alice asks her father if she is mad.  Her father says he believes she is but the best of us are.  I think it was also smiling at some of the events of the evening.  We waited for two seventh grade games to conclude before we began our contests.  All year we have had the goal to win the first game and to compete in the second game.  We fell 4 points short in the first game getting outscored 15 to 19.  We were 4 for 13 from the free throw line.  It seems like the same story.  Missed free throws and missed shots.  Lauren C scored 11 points,  Giselle D added 2 and Marley and Chelsea each added a point.  The record is 1 and 7.

The games with Carrizo were snowed out during December and I don’t think they were meant to be played this time either.  Twice in the first quarter we had a bat delay.  Then between the first and second quarter the bat made another appearance and a Carrizo girl threw a water bottle at it and missed but the water bottle broke on the court and we spent time mopping the water before we could begin.  We didn’t play defense, pass the ball or make shots and when we got on the bus the final score was Lytle 5, Carrizo Springs 49.  We have one game left for both teams on February 1st.  We are 0-11  overall and 0-8 in district.  We are averaging 7.9 points a game which would be great if we were a hockey team.  We are allowing 44.5 points per game.  If nothing else it has given me a fire for track season to have throwers who are focused on victory and will take nothing less than beating everyone in the district.

Freshmen vs Pearsall

The Freshmen Boys’ Basketball team lost to Pearsall Friday night. Early turnovers and missed shots from the Pirates created scoring opportunities for the Mavericks as they took the lead and never looked back. The Pirates continued to battle throughout the game, never giving up but failed to catch up. Leading the Pirates in scoring was Carson Aldridge (11pts) and Robey Harold (7pts). Current record: 4-6 overall, 0-3 district. We will play tomorrow evening in Devine. Go Pirates!

Varsity vs Pearsall

The Boys’ Varsity Basketball team beat Pearsall Friday night 61-52! In front of an energetic and loud crowd of Lytle supporters who made to the trip, the Pirates displayed great hustle and resilience. Despite leading the entire game, the Pirates could not seem to pull away from the Mavericks as the lead was only 22-21 at the half. Following halftime adjustments, role players such as Caleb Carrillo (10pts, 5 rebounds, 3 steals) and John Martinez (4pts, 4 rebounds, 3 steals) came off the bench to provide energy and relentless effort that proved to be the deciding factor late in the game. Jociah Cruzzi (12pts, 10 rebounds, 3 blocked shots) and Jeremy Thomison (10pts, 5 rebounds, 5 steals) each played a solid game. The Pirates plan to build off Friday night’s performance as we take on the Warhorses in Devine tomorrow evening. Go Pirates!

8th grade JH Boys Basketball vs Devine Warehorses 1-18-18

Last night was Round 2 for this season in the rivalry against the Devine Warhorses. The crowd was rocking and both teams fans showed up ready to cheer for their teams. The atmosphere in the gym was like any other I have ever seen for a Junior High and some High School basketball games. 

B team started the night off first. With a good defensive start to the game the final score after the first quarter was 8-4 Devine with the lead. After a close first quarter, the Pirates struggled to get anything going offensively and could not get a bucket to fall most of the game. Good defense kept the score close but in the fourth Devine was just too much for the Pirates who struggled to score all game. The final score for the B game was 36-19 Devine. Good performances from Jeremiah Flores with 7 points and Brian Cogburn with 5 points.

The main event of the night was the A team and the game was very entertaining. The first quarter was full of defense with both teams coming out with a lot of energy and after the first quarter the score was 12-6 Lytle. The second quarter, the Pirates came out and attacked and Devine could not handle the pressure and the Pirates took an 11 point lead at the half with the score at 25-14 Lytle. At the start of the third quarter, the Pirates again came out with more pressure and Devine still had no answer for the Pirates. The Pirates took a commanding 20 point lead after the third quarter with the score being 41-22 Lytle. Once the the fourth quarter started Devine came out to play and threw everything they had in their playbook at us. Pressuring the Pirates back and continues aggressive play from Devine cut the lead in half and got Devine's crowd really into the game and was starting to create an eventful ending to the game. The Pirates held them off and Devine never could completely come all the way back into the game. The final score was 51-43 Lytle Pirates! Great performances from Zak Placido, who played sick and ended with 11 points, Matthew Sanchez, who played with 4 fouls three quarters of the game and ended with 15 points, and Michael Tomlinson, who was a beast on the boards and got numerous rebounds. All around great performance from the whole team and is now 4-0 in district play.

A big thank you to all the students and staff who stayed and came out to support your Pirates in an eventful game. All the boys and coaches really appreciate the support. Our next game is Monday, Jan. 22nd against Carrizo Springs in Lytle. I hope everyone has a safe and great weekend. Go Pirates!

8th Grade Ladies Basketball Game in Devine

“No matter what you believe, it doesn’t change the facts.” – Al Kersha

Last night the Lady Pirates traveled the short trip down 132 to play Devine.  The Devine ladies have not lost a single game this year.  In the first game or B game the team was able to score 10 points, however, Devine ended up with 40.  Lauren C. led the scoring with 6, Alize S added 2 and Hannah M scored 2.  Our record is 1-6 for the year. 

In the second game we played with six lovely ladies who battled the entire game.  We also scored 10 points and reached one goal of scoring in the first half.  We have been shut out in the first half in 3 of the last 4 games.  Victoria A led the scoring with 5 points.  I have attached a picture of her shot while warming up.  Unfortunately it is a beautiful set shot but that went out with the ladies playing 3 on 3.  Sydney E scored 2 points on a great cut to the basket layup and Skye added 3 points.  We were 2 for 14 from the foul line.  The ladies hustled the entire night and played a great defense but when all was finished it was them 55 and us 10.  We are 0 for 10 this year and play our last road game in Carrizo, Monday.

Freshmen Boys Basketball Recap - Carrizo Springs / Crystal City

The Freshmen Boys' Basketball team has been off to a rough start in district play, losing to Carrizo Springs 39-48 last Friday and Crystal City 32-74 last night. Poor ball handling and execution put us in a bind early in both games and despite improvement in the second half of each game, deficits we have caused ourselves have been too great to overcome. Top scorers against Carrizo were Vincent Casanova (16pts) and Carson Aldridge (11pts) while Kaleb McDaris (14pts) led scorers against Crystal City. We will continue to work to improve and prepare for our game tomorrow night in Pearsall. Go Pirates!
