It took all sixteen guys to accomplish it.

Silver and Gold for Lyons

By Renée Haip

The Lyons cross country teams started their current training cycle last summer, meeting and gathering together regularly to train towards common goals and dreams. Under the care and guidance of Coaches Roberts and Boelé and armed with Coach Boelé’s individualized training plans, they took on the work at hand with focus, commitment, and discipline. Nothing—not flood waters, evacuations, or foreign training grounds—could deter them, and on Saturday, October 26th they were set to take on the challenges to be found at the unforgiving 5K state cross country course at Bear Creek Park and the adjacent rodeo grounds at the Norris-Penrose Event Center in Colorado Springs.

X-C Rules Regionals; Advances To State

By Renée Haip
All through the seasons, a typical sight around Lyons is the community’s youth running through town, along the river corridors, parks, and county trails. It is a scene that has recently been replaced by heavy equipment, members of the National Guard, aid workers, and community members scrambling to get the town back on its feet. They say adversity either breaks you or makes you stronger, and the athletes of Lyons’

Lions BIte

By Oskar LaRue
Last Saturday night the undefeated Lyons Lions played their “homecoming” game against the 5-1 Platte Canyon Huskies at Longmont High’s Everly-Montgomery Field.  The much anticipated contest featured the two best defenses in the league, the longest winning streak (Lyons), and a running game which averages over 300 yards per game (Platte Canyon).  For the Lyons faithful, the game was a thrilling, emotional roller coaster, and despite a pretty unbelievable comeback in the second half, the Lions suffered their first defeat of the season by the score of 35-31.

Cat Fight No Contest!

By Oskar LaRue
The Lyons Lions football squad remained unbeaten after five games as they shut out the winless Nederland Panthers 21-0 in Nederland last Saturday.  With the temperature in the thirties and the wind gusting to fifty miles per hour, Lyons’ Coach Brandon Wilkes knew it was going to be a day for running the ball, not passing it.  And that’s perfectly fine, since he’s got two guys that usually run for over a hundred yards a game in senior quarterback Logan Watson and senior
