Stout Defense Carries The Night

Lyons cornerbacks Zach Christiansen (10) and Preston Medina(1) stop the Yuma running back from entering the end zone in the fourth quarter.

This past Friday night marked the annual community BBQ, followed by the home-opener for the Lyons Lions football team.  This year the Lions hosted the Yuma Indians, who just barely lost to powerhouse Limon the week before, and were hungry for their first win. 

Also hungry (starving, really) were the masses of residents and visitors who queued up for grub before the game. The towering tornado of smoke

Defense Shines In Season Opener

Defense Shines In Season Opener

By Oskar LaRue – Staff Writer

The Lyons Lions varsity football team began their season Saturday with a three-hour bus ride to Ellicott, a friendly little town east of Colorado Springs and home of the Thunderhawks. It ended with 13-12 victory for the Lions, making the journey well worth it for players and fans alike.  What happened in between, though, was a hard fought game between two evenly matched and

Lyons Cross Country - 2013 Season Preview

Lyons Cross Country - 2013 Season Preview

By Renée Haip

After a successful spring on the track and a summer of consistent work putting in miles and building core strength, the boys’ cross country team returns stronger than ever. In Colorado 2A division’s run five, score three format, the defending state champion Lions are once again expected to crush their small school competition all through the season. They figure to be so dominant that they are unanimously ranked number one in Colorado Milesplit’s preseason coaches’ poll.

Beyond a goal of defending their 2012 league, regional, and state titles, the Lions hope to earn one of the few coveted team spots at the Nike Southwest Regionals’ post-season championship race in Mesa, Arizona.

Paddling To Alaska - Part Seven

Paddling To Alaska - Part Seven

By Kelly Yelverton

Editor’s Note: Lyons resident Kelly Yelverton recently graduated from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. To celebrate her accomplishment, she and a friend have decided to paddle their sea kayaks on a 1,200-mile journey through the Inside Passage to Alaska. She will be sending updates and photo of her adventure throughout the summer.

Paddling the two hundred miles from Ketchikan to Juneau, we wound our way into increasingly stunning channels and straits. The snowy mountains up here crowd ever closer to the water, and seem to grow larger each day. Just as the views have become

Champs Are Crowned

Champs Are Crowned


So often the big game never lives up to the hype preceding it. The title game for this year’s co-ed softball league would have definitely been worthy of the hype, if there had been any hype.  The once beaten (last week by the Natural Disasters) Blue Mountain Stone Quarry Workers took on the Paddy Whackers, a team they had beaten twice during the regular season, Monday night in Bohn Park with championship bragging rights on the line. The Whackers drew first blood with a lone run in the home half of the first inning. The Quarry Workers knotted the score with a run of their own in the top of the second. The Whackers upped the

Season Finale, Bring On The Play Offs

There is an old saying in the hills of West Virginia; “If ya wanna run with the big dogs, ya gotta come out from under the porch.” Monday night in Bohn Park, the Natural Disasters came out from under the porch, chased down the big dog (Blue Mountain Stone), and bite him on the backside. Playing in their final game of the regular season, the Disasters were determined right from the outset. Holding their opponents scoreless in the first inning, the Disasters rocked BMS for five scores in the bottom half of the frame. Being down at all, never mind by five runs after one inning is not something the Quarry Workers are accustomed to. With their interest now piqued, Blue Mountain Stone started to get back into the game. With two runs in the second, and
