In 1993 the Lyons Boys and Girls Mite teams each won a state championship. Twenty-four years later the Lyons Recreation Department produced three state champions in a span of 24 hours. The Lyons Mite Boys followed the Junior Girls and the Flea Boys by going through their tourney, at East Point, without losing a game. Down 1-0, Lyons scored all it’s runs in the sixth inning in a 6-1 victory over Glynn County.
Cameron Ledford led the sixth inning rally with a home run, off the end of his bat, over the left center field fence.
