By Wendy Stevelinck
After a long, long bus ride to the edge of Kansas, the Lyons volleyball team was able to stretch their legs, get the kinks out, rest, and scope out their competition. Yuma and Holyoke played the first match of the day. The Holyoke Dragons lost in straight sets to the host team, the Yuma Indians, so their spirits were down.

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 It is a scene that has recently been replaced by heavy equipment, members of the National Guard, aid workers, and community members scrambling to get the town back on its feet.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’
