Help the Lyons Lions compete in Glens Falls!

On Saturday, the Lyons Lions varsity boys basketball team advanced to the NYS Class C Final Four by defeating Middle Early College at Rush-Henrietta in the quarterfinal round.

If they win, they will play in the state title game on Saturday.Section V compensates school districts who advance to the state final four for mileage only.
