Nearly 100 years ago, the Lytle boys basketball took their game to State, and here we are again in 2023. The Lytle Pirates Basketball team is on fire, and making history. Siren escorts led them out of town as they headed for the big game and the feeling was electric as sirens brought them back into town as Regional Champs. It was smooth sailing as the Pirates cruised to a 67-33 victory over London last week, claiming the Regional title and are now Statebound! The Pirates will play in the State Semifinals on Thursday, March 9, 2023 at 3pm at the Alamodome in San Antonio. All Lytle ISD campuses will have an early out so the community can attend the game.
There is lots of talent and heart on the roster led by six seniors this year. Teammates are: Jordan Balderaz- Sr., Malakai Castro-Sr., Eli Vega-Sr., Jaelen Guevara-Sr., Tomas Benavidez-Sr, Zachary Perez-So., Andres Cardenas-Sr, Brandon Obando-Jr., Andrew Gonzales-Jr., Chase Guevara-Fresh, Derrick Diaz-Jr., Tristen Guevara-Jr. Demetrius Lopez-Sr., Lee Mills-Fresh.
