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!
