The other state qualifiers also had great performances at state
On top of their state performance, the Lions also were the Kaw Valley League Champions, beating Turner, Piper, Bonner, and Basehor in the KVL meet at home.
“KVL champs was the highlight of my year,” Myers said. “It topped off an already great year.”
The Lions also won a different meet at home as well as finishing top three in meets at Turner, Leavenworth, and Topeka.

The Lions will be looking for the same, if not more, amount of success next year.
“The team next year will have a lot of talent,” Myers said. “We will have a lot of state returners and experienced guys.”
