Undefeated Blue Mountain Stone got the night off Monday evening on the adult co-ed softball schedule of games in Bohn Park, and a pack of “also rans” used the league leaders’ respite to nip at the heels of the “Big Dog!” The Natural Disasters, McHeaters, and the Paddy Whackers, all sporting 2 – 1 records, seized the opportunity and won their respective contests to pull within a half a game of the Quarryworkers.
In the six o’clock game between the Natural Disasters and Fast Signs, it was the Disasters that got off to a fast start. Scoring seven runs

There was no sign of rust from any of the adult co-ed softball teams after the Memorial Day weekend lay-off. Monday night’s games were exciting and well played, with timely hitting and some great glove work in the field.
The opening game pitted the always-entertaining Hooligans against the Paddy Whackers. The Hoolies, looking resplendent in their new jerseys and caps, came out swinging and posted two runs in the first inning. Unfortunately for the Hooligans, that was the last time they led

The Hooligans were attempting to get their first win of the season Monday night. Unfortunately, they were trying to get that win against Fast Signs, who were still licking their wounds from the drubbing they took last week, at the hands of the Blue Mountain Bullies. Needless to say, Fast Signs was in no mood for any shenanigans from the Hooligans. The Hoolies got off to a quick start, going up one to zip in their half of the first. That was the last lead they saw. Fast Signs spanked the Hooligans with five runs in the bottom of the first, two more in

In their quest for a third repeat of double gold, the Lyons Lions traveled to the Colorado State Track and Field Championships where the Lady Lions were expected to have a legitimate battle with Paonia and 2A-newcomer Hotchkiss, as well as their usual worthy eastern plains’ competitor, Akron. Senior Nola Basey led the charge with her superior jumping abilities by taking the high jump win on day one with 5’4”. Basey unleashed a personal record breaking leap of 17’-7.5” in the long jump to take the win by more than a foot on day two. Had the

Historically it takes pitchers a little longer into the season to catch up with the hitters. But this was ridiculous! In four games Monday night, there were one hundred and twenty-one runs scored, and more hits, walks, and errors than can be humanly calculated. But it was entertaining. If you haven’t taken the family down to Bohn Park on a

Last Friday, May 10, the Lyons Track and Field team traveled east to Sterling where they participated in the Patriot League meet, their final competition before the state championships. One of only two 2A representatives in a field of larger, competitive 3A schools, the Lyons Lions had a good day with the young men of Lyons capturing the championship title for the fourth consecutive year, and the girls taking a respectable third place of the eleven teams.
From start to finish, the boys had numerous good performances. Individually, all-conference honors went to Ryan Boucher in both the 400M (1st) and 200M (1st), Paul Roberts
