The Pride Of Lyons

The Pride Of Lyons

The Lyons High School football team did the community proud on Saturday afternoon (September 21). They played their first game since last week’s flood, against the Clear Creek Gold Diggers, on an away “home” field (Longmont High’s field) in front of an enthusiastic crowd of fans, who were there to support their kids and community, and to get their spirits lifted. It was a win/win/win situation. There was a tremendous outpouring of love and support as friends and neighbors got to see and visit each other under less stressful circumstances,

Now in its fourteenth year, the St. Vrain Cross Country Invitational meet proved once again to be a great place for the Lyons’ community to showcase their commitment to Lyons’ renowned small school running program. From parking to concessions to leading races

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.
