The Lady Lions traveled to Brush for the annual Beet Digger’s softball tournament. The always confusing round robin format, and the “random placings” and “ever changing placings” by Brush sometimes means even with a better record, you may not make it to the championship game.

Lyons first game was against Limon who hasn’t won a game this year. Lyons won the game 22-8.  The Limon

Overwhelming & Overwhelmed!

After five games, the Lady Lions softball team have had what can only be described as an “up and down” season. Earlier last week Greeley Central was completely stymied by the Lion’s pitching and defense. Greeley was only able to scratch out two runs on two hits over six innings, while Lyons belted eleven hits and crossed the plate a dozen times. 

The first score of the game was by Madison Johnson, who scorched a deep triple and scampered home on a passed ball on the very next pitch. As the game went on the bats got hotter; Aisland Khlief doubled in the fourth for a pair of RBIs, Claire Busby had two singles to notch two RBIs of her own. Shaeli Herman had a pair of singles, and Madison Johnson had two singles to go with her triple. Liz Jonjak who also roped a triple, had two hits, a pair of RBIs, and a couple of runs scored. Pitcher Abbie
