Coach speak
Lytle throwers coach Hadley Foster commented, “In the Junior Varsity, it was preparation for the future to step into the varsity. We have the Junior Varsity champion in girl’s discus and boy’s discus and missed the JV girl’s shot put champion by 1/2 an inch. The JV boy’s team consisted only of freshmen and showed great strength in adjusting to the bigger instruments.”
With the Lady Pirates taking the JV championship and the Pirates placing third, things are looking good for Lytle’s high school track program.
