• Lyons Lady Lions 2000 Girls’ Track Team



    The 2000 Girls’ Track Team was a veteran squad on a mission, having fallen short in 1999 in their quest for a Sectional and State Title.  Led by senior stalwarts Deidre Foster and Laura Olson, along with a strong supporting cast of  talented veterans and young athletes, the Lady Lions went undefeated in the Wayne County League, won several invitational meets and then set eleven Section V Individual and Relay records in winning the Class CC Sectionals.  Six girls then qualified in 11 events for the State Meet.  The girls won 5 events at the State Meet, along with 1 second and 2 thirds and a fifth place finish earning the Lady Lions the Class CD State Championship.  Their mission accomplished.
