Happy Homecoming week!

Congratulations and GO LIONS!

Congratulations to LHS Marching Band! They competed in the Friendship Cup invitational and took 1st place overall.  Way to GO LIONS!!

"Wow!"  "Crazy!"  "How did that happen?"  Those were some of our stunned comments after the LHS boys cross country team took second-place out of 22 schools in our biggest meet of the season, the Liberty Bell Invitational at Heritage H.S. on Friday.  The girls team was also pretty amazing in finishing in fifth-place.  Addi Iken led the Lion attack with a fourth-place finish, followed by Magda van Leeuwen, Sarah Gray, Annika Cobb, and Jenae Stutzman.  The boys put three runners in the top 16, with Bruce Barnstable placing sixth, pursued closely by Christian Sapakoff, who broke LHS' all-time freshman mark, and Colin Cannon.  Tyler Fuller and Ryan Prazak rounded out the Lions' scoring.  Congrats, everyone!
