Lytle Junior High Football

7th Grade:  Mathis 22, Lytle 8

8th Grade:  Lytle 6, Mathis 0

 Lytle JH Football began its season last night against the Mathis Pirates. 

 Our 7th grade began with a 10 play scrimmage before their actual game. Highlights included a couple of nice runs by Hudson Mask, Joseph Araujo and Connor Martin.  The 7th grade game was full of exciting plays.  Lytle fell behind early 14 – 0 but answered back in the 2nd half with a nice TD run by Collin Aldridge.  Devon Caldera bulled his way into the endzone to add the 2 pt. conversion.  Mathis added 1 more score to take the contest 22 – 8.  Highlights included great effort from Preston Edge, our center, Eli Vega – 3 tackles for loss, and Brandon Frias – interception and touchdown saving tackle.

 Our 8th grade game started off with a bang as the Pirates marched down the field and scored on the opening drive with a nice 18 yard pass from Alberto “Bubba” Solis to Daniel Aguirre.  The drive would have stalled 2 plays earlier if not for a nice catch from Kasen Boyd from Solis. The rest of the game was a defensive battle.  Our defense is lead by Drew Williams, our middle linebacker.  Drew had an outstanding game leading the team in tackles.  Cort Haltom also had 2 sacks and contributed nicely on both offense and defense. Our defense stopped Mathis 3 times inside the 30 yard line  in the 2nd half.  Capping it off with a forced fumble by Elias Hernandez.  Justin DeLeon sealed the victory with a bruising 18 yard run to gain a much needed 1st down.  Pirates win 6 – 0.

Coach Bippert                                                                                                                                    Coach Alvarez                                                                                                                                  Coach Robles                                                                                                                                   Coach Trevino

Mr. Corona returns from the "U.S. Air Force/FIRST Leadership Experience".

In the last week of July, Mr. Corona and 23 other teachers from across the country attended the "U.S. Air Force/FIRST Leadership Experience" in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This was the 6th year the U.S. Air Force hosted this annual event. All who attended were members of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). Robotic Engineering teachers, sponsors, coaches and mentors, spent 5 days becoming familiar with the U.S. Air Force Academy and the many opportunities available.

7th Grade Create Major App

The 7th Grade Computer Science students have just completed a major app similar to one found in a museum.  Using MIT App Inventor, this 9 screen app catalogs vintage pieces of older technology I have in my classroom.  If you have ever been to a museum or major attraction where you use or rent devices to take a self-guided tour, this is similar.  Here is a sample of one app as it is viewed on an Android Tablet.



Here is a video link to the app in action:  Click Here

Some of these apps were sent to the Director of Curators at the "San Antonio Children's Doseum".  Her and another gentleman at the "San Antonio Museum of Technology" have offered to view the apps and provide some feedback to our students.  We're all anxious to see and hear how the apps are viewed by professionals.

8th Grade Lady Pirates compete in LaVernia Basketball tournament

The Lady Pirates A team traveled to La Vernia on Saturday to participate in the Lady Bears invitational tournament.  The Pirates began the tournament against 13 ladies from the Floresville B team.  After a slow first quarter, the Lady Pirates were able to pull away and win the game, 32 – 5. 

The victory moved the Lady Pirates into the big gym to take on the A team from La Vernia.  It was the highlight of the season with the Ladies winning the game and getting to the championship game.  The score was Lytle 31 – La Vernia 19. 

In the championship game, the Lady Pirates played the winner of the San Antonio Christian vs Medina Valley contest.  The Lady Lions from SAC were the opponent in the championship game. The Lady Pirates had the lead at the half 14 to 13.  Unfortunately, during the second half, the Lady Pirates were unable to sustain their scoring and were outscored 19 – 28 and were awarded the second place plaque. (see picture below).   

Congratulations to the 8th Grade Lady Pirates!
