What a great way to start off league play, with all three Lyons teams (C, JV, and Varsity) scoring wins over Front Range Christian. The C team got things started with a hard fought two-set win, 25-19 and 26-24. The JV team then dominated their match in two sets as well, winning 25-11 and 25-5.

After the September 2013 floods in Colorado, the Lyons Community Montessori (LCM) school closed its doors. This was tragic news for the parents and children who were already fragile from their experiences with the flood and who simply wanted to get back into a normal routine.
