Nola Basey, Lyons
During a week in which the Lions went 2-1, Basey was rather dominant. The junior averaged 17.3 kills and eight blocks for the week. Her best performance came against Resurrection Christian, when she registered 19 kills, 15 blocks and four aces. “It was a lot of fun,” she said. “Our setter, Madeline Keen, put up some great sets in those matches.” During the weekend before her big week, Basey competed in a doubles volleyball tournament in Aspen, playing in the women’s bracket with her mom and playing mixed doubles with her dad. She said that helped get her ready for the week. Now, she hopes she and the team can keep it up. “I feel like we’re off to a really good start,” she said.

The junior could not have asked for a better start to the football season last week. In a 54-10 win over Gilpin County, he returned an interception 52 yards for a touchdown, collected four quarterback sacks and recovered a fumble. “I had a touchdown and four sacks, but overall there were a lot of good plays,” said Flowers as he deflected some of the credit to his teammates. “(Playing well) is always nice, but usually it’s just trying to go out there and perform for the team. It was a good game for us and a good win and I hope we can build off of that.”
