The Lady Pirates opened district last week against Karnes City and Poteet. They are in a big district with eight other teams and have a long district road ahead of them. They lost their first game against Karnes City but they rallied back and beat Poteet in three sets. It may not have been how they wanted to open district but the Pirates will work harder and try and to win every match to take them to playoffs. “Our varsity team is feeling itself out to develop the chemistry needed to take the next step. We are talented, but have a lot of new faces that are learning each other’s progression and communication. We look forward to seeing the end result when these amazing Lady Pirates find their stride,” said Coach Denise Cordero.
Fizz Hutton 13 digs, 2 aces, 6 kills, 1 assist, 1 asst. block. Chelsea Gonzalez 1 solo block, 1 kill. Rose Scotello 1 kill, 6 digs, 2 assists, 1 block, and 1 assist block. Elysa Aleman 3 digs, 2 aces, 4 assists, 1 kill. Amelia Martinez 1 kills, 4 digs. Alyssa Sprenger 3 digs. Marissa Lopez 4 digs.
In their second district game against Poteet, Lytle was ready to take them down. Winning 25-18, 25-18, and 25-20, the Pirates dominated the court. “Our Pirates started strong and ended strong, defeating the Aggies in 3 sets and our volleyball program swept the Aggie program! We played with confidence, determination, and more importantly trust!” said Coach Cordero.
Gonzalez 8 aces, 1 kill, 2 asst. blocks, 1 dig. Sprenger 3 digs. Skye Granato 1 kill. Martinez 2 digs. Lopez 1 ace, 2 kills, 6 digs. Kaylee Diaz 1 ace, 2 kills, 3 digs.
