Lytle Middle School track competes well in Dilley

Lytle Middle School coach Hadley Foster, Jr. is always so gracious to share stories and results of the student-athletes he coaches on a daily basis. Lytle participated in Dilley’s Wolfpack Relays prior to their spring break, and Coach Foster was more than happy to pass along the following information.
“The Junior High had a nice day to throw,” Foster began saying. “We didn’t throw our best on the boys side but we still were better than the competition and the girls gained great confidence with their performances.”
Seth Pierce came within four inches of setting the school record for seventh grade boys with his throw of 36’1. Mason Hill placed second with his PR of 30’6 and Ethan Elizondo placed fifth with a 29’9 throw. Ethan then won Discus with a throw of 85’2. Last week Mason Hill won at Poth and the week prior Ethan won at Devine so it stands now as Ethan 2 firsts and Mason one. Mason placed 5th in Discus with a 70′ throw, and Seth placed third with a 74′ throw.
Noah Smoot placed first in Discus with a 104′ throw. Noah Mercer threw his PR with an 82’7″ throw.
Alianna Cardenas PR’s with a 25’7 throw. Camila Vega stayed pinned in the top 8 with a 21’8″ throw. Camila also threw a PR in discus with a 51’11” discus throw to place her 4th. Olivia Cherry was excited to throw her PR and place 5th with a 47’6″. Sara Morquecho and Dulce Martinez also threw discus and shot respectively.
Anissa Perez placed fifth with a final throw of 58′. Isabella Sewell threw over sixty in Devine placed seventh with a 50’9 toss. Martina Yruarte was first at 28’5, Isabella Sewell was 2nd at 27’7.5 and Taryn McDonald was third at 27’1.
Coach Foster also has the pleasure of working with distance runners in addition to throwers.
Klayre Cook won the 2400m and 800m with a PR of 2:36. Frankie Scotello won the mile with a PR of 6:08 edging out a girl from Carrizo Springs at the tape. Annika Robles set a PR in her mile at 7:30, placing sixth. Laleina Riviera won the 2400m and the 800m. Vanessa Perez won the 1600m and Addison Wagner was fourth in the 2400m and 1600m setting a PR at 7:03. Sara Morquecho ran the 800m at 4:03 and the 1600m at 9:10.
Thank you Coach Foster for sharing, and for caring!
