Austin Lyons has been a crucial asset to the Lapel High School basketball team over the past few years. Lyons is now filling the senior leadership role that the team needs. He played his AAU ball with Grand Park Select 2018.
Manchester University, Anderson University, and Indiana Tech have all been in contact and seen Lyons play. Not only is Austin performing on the court, he’s also putting it together in the classroom receiving academic scholarship money to a list of schools. Austin is looking to get into the Engineering field with his degree. He is looking to hit his stride late in his senior season and open up paths for success after high school.
When it comes to Lapel, they never seem to have an easy early season schedule. They challenge themselves throughout the year to gear themselves up for the post season.
“We play tough competition for how small our school is. We are working on being more of a team and communicating more on defense. Offense will come but we have to get better at keeping people in front of us and having better rotations in help side defense.”
Lapel is off to a tough start this season sitting at 6-7 mid-way through the season. The Bulldogs were on the early season watch list for a Frontrunner in Class 2A ( https://www.prephoops.com/2017/10/2a-frontrunners-lapel/ ). Having won a State Championship just two years ago and remaining consistent since, they will find their groove in the second half of the season before March rolls around.
“Rebounding has been something that we’ve need to work on lately, but that can be an easy fix.” As Lapel tries to find their identity, they will look to their senior guard to take charge and carry them in their upcoming games.
Keep an eye on the Lapel Bulldogs lead by senior Austin Lyons to flip the script on the 2017-2018 season. They’ve got an easier second half schedule that should help them hit their stride as they look to make another deep post season run.
