Olpe had a special season and fought through a really tough league to reach the pinnacle last year. Lebo, Madison, Burlingame and Waverly were all very good in their own right.

Here’s a look back, and a look forward, for the Lyon County League:

Top Team: Olpe

What a year for Olpe High School. Following up their state titles in football, the Eagles won championships in both boys and girls basketball. They went 18-3, with only one loss against a school of comparable size – a mid-season loss to Lebo. At state, they beat high quality opponents in Little River and South Gray.

Winner. That’s the best way to describe Olpe’s players, particularly Barnard. He was the ringleader of a group of really good athletes. He averaged 14.1 points, and tallied 17 in the state final. He is a 6-foot-1 all-around athlete who left his mark on 1A sports.

Senior Star: Devan McEwen Devan McEwen 6'2" | SG Lebo | 2021 State KS , Lebo (pictured)

Another guy who left a mark on the small school level was McEwen, an all-state football and basketballer. He topped the 20-point mark repeatedly last year, despite facing defenses geared to stop him.
