Senior Girls Basketball

The Senior Girls Basketball Team clawed their way to a narrow 27-26 victory over Don Mills CI in their quarterfinal match on Friday!

On Monday, the girls went up against a scrappy John A. Macdonald team who pushed them to the limits. After leading 13-9 in the first, our Lyons ran out of steam by the 4th, losing 41-50. Thanks to Mr. Malo, Ms. Mancini, and Isaiah for an amazing run and season!

Junior Boys Volleyball

The boys visited York Mills last night for their north region semi-final match. The team came out flat to start and could not recover, dropping two sets straight to the Titans (22-25, 18-25). The potential is boundless for this squad, so look out next year! Mr. Hua thanks the boys for a strong season!

Junior Girls Basketball

The Junior Girls Basketball Team played hard, but fell just short in triple over time in their quarterfinal vs. Earl Haig (22-24)! The girls had an amazing season and it wouldn't have been possible without the guidance and support from Ms. Huntley and Mr. Nguyen. Thank you once again!

Monday Oct. 29 - Friday Nov. 2

Senior Girls Basketball

The Senior Girls Basketball Team will look to stay undefeated on Tuesday Oct. 30th as they travel to and square off vs. Newtonbrook for their last regular season game. Their quarterfinal match will be on Friday Nov. 2nd at MAC! Come out to cheer on your Lyons!

Junior Boys Volleyball

The Junior Boys Volleyball Team finished their season strong, as they swept their seasonal matchup vs. York Mills 2-0 in an exciting three set match on Monday (16-25, 25-23, 15-9)!

The boys also dominated Northview in their quarterfinal match on Wednesday 2-0 (25-20, 25-17)! They now await the winner between York Mills and J. Polanyi for their semi-final game next week! Great Job Lyons!

Junior Girls Basketball

The Junior Girls Basketball Team finished their regular season with a nail biting 20-25 loss to AY Jackson. They look to bounce back as they play their quarterfinal match on Thursday Nov. 1st @ Earl Haig! Good luck ladies!

Senior Boys Volleyball

The Senior Boys Volleyball team travelled to Don Mills Tuesday evening for their last regular season match. The boys fought hard, but came up just short losing in two straight sets (22-25, 18-25). They now wait to see if they have qualified for playoffs, stay tuned!

Varsity Boys Soccer

The Varsity Boys Soccer Team traveled to Victoria Park to play their quarterfinal match Tuesday evening. After falling behind early 0-1, the Lyons rallied back to tie it up late in overtime. Unfortunately Vic Park would score the winning and golden goal that would conclude MAC's outdoor soccer season.

Mr. Hadida would like to congratulate the Boys Varsity soccer team on the completion of their successful season. They went undefeated at home and qualified for the playoffs. They learned from their defeats and became better as the season progressed. They handled their loss in the Quarter-Finals in overtime with class. Congratulations once again! Try outs for the junior and senior boys indoor soccer teams will be held in December. Check the Co-op Board beside the Co-op office, room 226, for exact times and dates.

Many thanks to Mr. Hadida for an awesome season!
