Lyons Cross Country - 2013 Season Preview

Lyons Cross Country - 2013 Season Preview

By Renée Haip

After a successful spring on the track and a summer of consistent work putting in miles and building core strength, the boys’ cross country team returns stronger than ever. In Colorado 2A division’s run five, score three format, the defending state champion Lions are once again expected to crush their small school competition all through the season. They figure to be so dominant that they are unanimously ranked number one in Colorado Milesplit’s preseason coaches’ poll.

Beyond a goal of defending their 2012 league, regional, and state titles, the Lions hope to earn one of the few coveted team spots at the Nike Southwest Regionals’ post-season championship race in Mesa, Arizona.

In the school’s 16 years of the program, all under Coach Mark Roberts, the Lions have qualified for state all but once and brought home silver four times. This year, the team continues their quest for a first-ever state championship title and they have a lot of reason to be hopeful.
