Chris Lyons Honored as Lions Club Athlete of the Month

In an obvious case of “it takes one to know one”, Chris Lyons, a senior captain on the Rye boys’ swim team, was named the Lion Club Athlete of the Month for January.

Lyons has been with the varsity swim team since way back in 2005, and recently captured a Section title in the 200-meter individual medley. The senior will represent Rye at the State championships in early March, and has put together a laundry list of accolades in his career including both All-American and All-Section status.

Lyons is ferocious in the classroom as well, having taken Honors classes in English, history, and biology, and AP courses in world history, psychology, and environmental science.

Outside of school, the senior dedicates his spare time to Badger Swim Club in Larchmont. He is also the co-founder of the Cancer Research Ice Cream Fundraiser, and has coordinated bake sales to raise money for the Rye swim team. In addition, Lyons volunteers on Back-to-School night, and has tutored international students learning English.

He will attend the University of Pennsylvania in the fall.
